“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
Munijan is an event which Mumbai University hosts with the organisation entrusted upon business schools under its umbrella.
SIMSREE’s Student Social Responsibility was a part of the organizing committee along with some other reputed colleges such as Jamnalal Bajaj Institute, Welingkar, MET and ADMI.
It is an initiative to make a sustainable change through implementable solutions provided by students. The participants here are given a theme, and they must come up with a doable solution for the problem at hand and the solution should have positive quantifiable effects.
The theme we chose for the participants was “Environment:Conserving Nature, Earth is what we have in common”. It was held on the 2nd of October, 2018 at Sir Cowarji Jahangir Hall of the University of Mumbai.
We had immensely prestigious jury present there to grace everyone’s presence. We had Mr. Tapan Wagle, Senior Consultant at Environmental Management Centre, Mrs. Meena Mutha, founder and trustee of Manav Foundation, Ms. Malvika Nagarkar from the University of Sussex with 35 years of teaching experience, Mr. Vinod Chabra with 30 years of management consultancy with Tata and Mr. Santosh Phad, founder and Trustee of Think Sharp Foundation.
The students presented their idea and with impeccable conviction they came up with innovative as well as intriguing solutions to save the environment. SIMSREE students secured the first runner up position and were awarded by the dignitaries.
The event was a success and Mumbai University would implement the ideas that the students have come up with. This would have a wonderful ripple effect and could potentially help in saving the environment.
