How successful do you think Climate Jamboree event is? Would it make any difference in your lives from now onwards?

Climate Jamboree is a first of its kind event that brings experts and stalwarts in the field of environment to students. We are witnessing a galaxy of scientists, researchers, policymakers and captains of the industry at a single platform giving us a renewed commitment to work towards mitigating the impacts of climate change.
In this event through the well-planned thematic live labs, and face to face meetings with experts, we now are aware of the issues like why we need a lifestyle change, and become a formidable force to become change agents of the future. This has been the outcome of Climate Jamboree that will make a radical change in our lives.
What do you think are the main takeaways from this event?

Reinforcing responsible social and environmental behaviour amongst youth is one of the main takeaways of Climate Jamboree. Not only are we now confident that we can collectively work towards a sustainable ecosystem, as well as, the next generations to come; but also engaging with the right actors in the society for demanding a planet of our own, which cares for everyone. Another important takeaway is working towards lifestyle changes and consumption patterns. If we show empathy now, we create a better world for tomorrow.
How do you think schools and colleges can contribute to a better environment through their students?

We students have a major role in shaping the conversation about climate change, as we are the ones who will have to live with so many of the consequences. Today, we not only can change our own mind sets and behaviour patterns, but can through our voices, make a radical change in the society. As students we can engage within our neighbourhood to adopt and upkeep trees and plantations, we can voice for public transport and car-pooling system, we can make changes in the way we use energy resources, and switch to renewable resources, change in food habits can lead to a safer planet, and last but now the least, our collective voice for a safe and green planet can prod governments to bring in new rules and regulations.
How do you think every individual is responsible for ecological degradation and balance?
Saif Ahmed Khan
Young entrepreneur and a Participant at Climate Jamboree 2018.
On a daily basis each individual uses mother earth for his or her needs. Our inactions towards wastage of water, food, excessive use of finite energy resources and inappropriate consumption patterns are responsible for degradation of mother earth. Small changes can bring a huge change towards a sustainable future.
