In March 2019, I welcomed a student group from The British School - New Delhi to a Flow In Action Youth Entrepreneurship Workshop run in collaboration with UNCTAD-DIAE at the UN Palais des Nations. We explored achieving SDG-11 at a local level in their school and community with innovative ideas to stop air pollution.
The students were on a week-long trip to Geneva organised by service-learning trip specialists, CAS Trips.
For this workshop, students took on the innovation challenge I’d set them of cleaning up Delhi’s air by the end of 2020. Delhi is the 6th largest air polluter on the planet.
It was an interactive, rapid download workshop, working in groups. Ideas. Value Propositions. Exploring how to set up prototypes with Lama Sha'sha'a, the Co-Founder of IRA - International Robotics Academy, Jordan, who I was delighted to welcome to the workshop.
And finally, informal 3-min pitches to share their concepts with me, the team from UNCTAD-DIAE and Lama.
Incredible students, already innovating and dreaming big on enterprises to achieve the SDGs.
