Dalmia Cement and the TERI School of Advanced Studies (TERI SAS) have jointly launched a programme ‘Climate Jamboree’ with a mission to empower youth to take ownership of creating a sustainable future for themselves.
The Programme aims to help youth engaged in different streams of study, and aspiring for diverse careers, to recognise both the common as well as unique opportunities they have to influence more desirable outcomes. A medley of diverse ‘lead-up’ events exposing youth to the diversity of sustainability solutions, culminating in a Finale that would stitch together the various elements in an engaging manner, the Climate Jamboree aims to carry the voice of youth to decision makers and opinion leaders. With activities designed for students/young professionals of management, law, urban studies, natural and social sciences, media and communications, among many others, this programme also hopes to create communities of action in different geographies networked together for maximum impact.
Open to youth across the country and beyond, most of the lead-up events would be undertaken on an online mode but the Finale, scheduled between November 1 3, 2018 at the Thyagaraj Stadium in New Delhi, aims to engage well over 10,000 youth and other relevant stakeholders to learn, innovate and collaborate on sustainability solutions. At the Finale, Youth will have a chance to interact with national and global experts and express their concerns/ideas via interactive workshops, performing arts, exhibitions, technical sessions, live demonstrations, competitions, exciting innovations and many more outlets.
