The Round Table of Kirori Mal College, Delhi University aims at facilitating holistic growth and promoting rich educational and extra-curricular ethos amongst students. It stands true to the spirit of ‘Dialogue Across Disciplines. At The Round Table society, we are pleased to exemplify the humongous event “Panacea: Striving for Collective Welfare.”
The crucial subject which will be exhibited through the event is Sustainable Development Goals that hold considerable strength and deepness in today’s time. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were born at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro in 2012.
The purpose was to produce a set of universal goals that would help combat the urgent environmental, political, and economic challenges facing our world.
This year, The Round Table has chosen this topic because The SDGs are universal goals for all people and are inherently global. Learning about these initiatives helps youthful minds to develop insights into critical issues around the world, such as lack of access to clean water and gender equality.
These issues are inseparable from culture, and to truly understand the SDGs, students need to learn about the world around them. The event will be taking place between 12th-13th November 2021.
The event, Panacea is subdivided into several extraordinary and intriguing parts which consist of Panel Discussion, Documentary Screening, Open Forum, and Flagship competition. Commencing with the Panel discussion, the central priority of this event will be over the 7th, 8th, and 9th SDGs (affordable and clean energy, decent work and economic growth and industry, innovation, and infrastructure).
The discussion will transmit forward by Dr. Deepali Pant Joshi (Development Economist), Prof. Amiya Kumar Bagchi (Political Economist), and Mr. Dhiraj Nayyar (Columnist and public speaker) on the above illustrated SDGs on 12th November (10.30 am onwards).
Striding ahead to Documentary Screening and Open Forum, the SDGs which will be concentrated on are 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th (no poverty, zero hunger, good health, and well-being, and quality education). The event will conclude with a Flagship competition “Sanyukt- bridging the gap through innovation” which comprises distinct fractions like quiz, extempore, and sustainable case study presentation.
The aim of these will be to focus on how as an individual or as a part of society we can contribute tremendously towards achieving the goals. The October edition of our monthly newsletter ‘The Communique’ was also based on Biodiversity, Nature & the Climate Crisis contributing to SDGs.
The UN set the 17 Sustainable Developmental Goals in 2015 to achieve them in the next ten years (2030). Each of the UN’s 17 SDGs exists to provide a better and more sustainable future for every individual that resides on the planet.
“When we achieve human rights and human dignity for all people – they will build a peaceful, sustainable, and just world.” – Antonio Guterres.
