In a significant development of collaboration between academia and industry, TERI School of Advanced Studies (TERI SAS) and Dalmia Cement have conducted a joint climate Jamboree. The three-day Youth Movement for a Sustainable Future was held in New Delhi, India, on November 1–3. The jamboree attracted 10,000 youngsters from across the world, more than 100 experts, about 50 partners and stakeholders.

The event was conducted with a mission to empower the youth to take ownership of creating a sustainable future for themselves. It aims to unleash the power of the youth to make a difference towards achieving a climate neutral lifestyle and showcase sustainability in all its facets to create an empathy with the issue of climate change, further encouraging them to take ownership of the solutions.

TERI School of Advanced Studies (TERI SAS) is leading education institution, while Dalmia Cement is a premier company in cement manufacturing in India around from India and across the world. The mission of Climate Jamboree is to unveil Suresh Prabhu, the Indian Minister for Commerce and Industry is all praise about the event: “Climate Change is a great leveller and will impact everyone in the world. Those who have no capacity to cope with it will be the worst sufferers. Today, India is in a situation where like the rest of the world, we are facing its impact too. But unlike rich countries, we do not have the resources to cope with it. The droughts, floods, natural disasters, water scarcity, heat waves and many more impacts that we see are a symptom of a deep malaise called climate change. Today, we all and most importantly youth, need to work towards mitigating and creating awareness about climate change and be change-agents.”

The three-day event will connect youth to relevant stakeholders to drive climate action and empower them to achieve sustainable development goals. The aim is to create “Youth Voices” that will lead to commitments, innovative solutions, and create a multiplier effect for low carbon sustainable development, and through focussed deliberations. This will lead to a holistic declaration document feeding into COP 24 to be held in Poland December 2018.

To celebrate the school choice, diversity, and culture in the Brooklyn community, education leaders are going to join together. The event will include speakers and presenters, as well as workshops for the children, including African drumming and an International Children’s Film Festival. The event will feature more than 40,000 school choice events across all 50 states.

“School is more than a place where you go to learn academics. Our school is a community that honors the special talents of each individual – one where we learn to work together to form a global perspective surrounded by values of social justice, service, and faith. Because our families are able to choose to participate in a values-based education here at the academy, we are able to nurture the growth of active, global citizens who are prepared to enter college, career, and beyond with intellectual vigor and a strong moral compass,” said Manuela Adsuar-Pizzi, principal of St. Francis Xavier – Queen of All Saints Catholic Academy.

In 2016, he was drafted by the New England Patriots; and during his rookie year, he played a crucial role in the Patriot’s historic overtime comeback win in Super Bowl 51.
