The TrickyScribe: With a view to empowering youth to take ownership of creating a sustainable future for themselves, TERI School of Advanced Studies (TERI SAS) have jointly launched a programme of engagement with Dalmia Cement – the ‘Climate Jamboree’.
The Programme aims at helping youth that is already pre-occupied in different streams of study, and aspiring for diverse careers, to recognize 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, Climate Jamboree aims to carry the voice of youth to decision-makers and opinion leaders. It has also been assigned a dedicated web portal for commenting to Netizens among the youth. Click here to visit the website.
With activities designed for the millennials engaged in fields 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. The Finale, however, is scheduled between November 1 – 3, 2018 at the Thyagaraj Stadium in New Delhi, which aims to engage youth and other relevant stakeholders to ideate, 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 as well as their ideas via interactive workshops, performing arts, exhibitions, technical sessions, live demonstrations, competitions, exciting innovations and many more outlets.

Combining the knowledge of experts with the practicalities of on-the-ground actors and the enthusiasm of youth, the Climate Jamboree also hopes to find reflection in the responses of society at large,” said TERI School of Advanced Studies VC, Dr Leena Srivastava.
