In August 2023, the "Journey to Sustainability" competition, part of the Karnataka-Ladakh Eco Challenge, provided a significant platform for students to showcase their design thinking and problem-solving abilities. Focused on environmental awareness and nurturing future environmental leaders, this event aimed to educate students on sustainable waste management practices. Participants collaborated intensively, devising innovative waste management solutions within an hour, targeting waste reduction, renewable energy, or water conservation.
Exceptional projects emerged from winners in Grades 6 to 8, including Aadvait Voleti, Siddhi Nag, S B Sugeerthana, Neha Elina Jacob, and Lavanya Bhaskar, recognised for their outstanding contributions. Evaluations by faculty members, Sakila Ma’am and Moitryee Ma’am, highlighted the students' confidence and ingenious presentations of their solutions.
This activity not only equipped students with crucial knowledge and skills in waste management but also instilled a proactive attitude towards environmental preservation.
