In collaboration with the Confederation of Indian Industry’s Young Indians, The Design Village organized a workshop on “Unlocking Opportunities Around Sustainability” for students. The workshop aimed to bring together the nation’s youth and engage them in positive climate action. The goal was to deepen their understanding of climate change, its impacts, and consequences, while viewing sustainability through the lens of design and as a global challenge.
The initiative focused on fostering a deeper understanding of climate change, its sweeping impacts, and the consequential challenges we face in the modern world. Through an innovative approach, the program aimed to empower young minds with the knowledge and skills required to address global sustainability issues through the transformative lens of design.
While speaking Mr. Jalesh Arya, the National Chair, Climate Change, Young Indians said “Striving for sustainability and responsibility in our actions, the journey towards success may be small, but it’s a testament to the dedication of individuals from diverse fields discussing EV technology, biodiversity, green job opportunities, and inspiring greater accountability. We look forward to more such collaborations with institutions like The Design Village, expressing our heartfelt gratitude, and envisioning a future filled with such impactful dialogues.”
The workshop concluded with a one-on-one interactive session discussing the importance of sustainability in the field of design, career opportunities, global sustainability challenges, as well as business strategies and planning. The students were motivated and enlightened, gaining important insights into understanding sustainability through the lens of design.
