‘Do not wait for help. Be a change-maker on your own initiative’

Experts advice Apeejay School Saket students to ignite the spark of change at the Global Education & Leadership Foundation workshop on Sustainable Development Goals for a healthy environment



The Global Education & Leadership Foundation (TGELF) along with Apeejay School, Saket organised a workshop for Youth Leaders on Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) on Friday, August 27.  The objective of the workshop was to inspire the youth by igniting a creative spark for change. This in turn would pave the way for a healthy society and industry standards which would practice sustainable development.

Experts from Johnson & Johnson — Dr Geetal Mahajan Choudhary and Susiwaty Chandra — conducted the two-hour-long engaging workshop for students. Their inputs increased the knowledge base of the students.

Commerce students of class 11 attended the virtual workshop which centred on the 17 SDG projects initiated by Johnson and Johnson in different countries for environmental growth. The workshop was distributed into breakout room sessions where each session undertook one SDG in detail. The students of Apeejay School, Saket chose SDG session number two: ‘Zero Hunger’ breakout room.

They experts elaborated upon the project of Vermiculture and Aquaculture through an interactive session, along with a brief presentation and a short video followed by a Question and Answer session in the end.

Class 11-A student Matangi Mishra posed a relevant question to the experts: “How could one practice niche processes like Vermiculture and Aquaculture in India, when there are hardly any specific organisations for the cause?”

 The experts replied that one does not have to wait for proper establishments to begin a change. One could successfully practice both the processes at a small scale individually. The experts also shared various links with the students, providing information regarding the same.

The students gained a new perspective of the global issues and also some necessary insights enabling them to make a change at their own level.

“Apeejeyites are conditioned right from the tender years to think with a humane approach, to find solutions to problems, to lead from the front, to volunteer and to have an understanding heart! It’s a pleasure to watch the harvest maturing and their fragrance spreading far and wide!!!! Kudos to the budding generation of problem solvers!!!”
