2019’s First Sustainability Article Writing Competition on UN Sustainable Development Goals
Our Motivation & Endeavor
In this age of excessive consumption and skewed distribution across the globe, adopting a sustainability centric approach is our only salvation. Recognizing the need for promoting prosperity for all while protecting the planet, the United Nations has come up with a list of Sustainable Development Goals as the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.
With a view to create discourse around sustainability, EnvEcoLogic is constantly seeking to engage with the youth, as we recognize that innovative ideas from these sharp young minds need to be given a platform to express their opinions and thoughts. With this perspective, some of our key initiatives in the recent times have been aimed at increasing youth participation and discourse. Some of our endeavours include partnering with TERI School of Advanced Studies for Climate Jamboree 2018, appointing 180 Degree Consulting (Hansraj) as our Outreach partners for the biggest pan Delhi survey on air pollution to date, and organizing Green Vision 2019 for school kids, which is an essay writing competition on SDGs.
Continuing with our endeavours, Envecologic is launching Green Vision 2019 for Colleges – Think. Adopt. Adapt, a competition aimed to encourage young minds to think and brainstorm on topics that impact them the most. Express your opinions, ideas, thoughts, and suggested action course on any of the given topics, and share them with us. The best ideas stand to win some highly lucrative prizes, including internship opportunities, and opportunity to be published.
