Continuing with its efforts over last several years, ISKCON Punjabi Bagh is organizing VALUE EDUCATION OLYMPIAD 2021 (VEO 2021), this time in collaboration with Govardhan Ecovillage, UN Environment Program and Faith for Earth Councilor. We have been organizing this olympiad over last several years now and has received tremendous success. Despite the COVID challenges last year, the Value Education Olympiad saw a participation of 13,200+ children from 28+ schools across India. This year we aim to reach out to even more students. One of the major focuses of the Value Education Olympiad this year will be on sensitizing and education students on climate change. Being conscious of the environment is the need of the hour, as climate change will be the defining challenge for this generation.
VEO 2021 has been formally launched on 15th July, 2021. As part of this program, we will be conducting 9 (nine) seminars for the children, to discuss the values covered under Value Education Olympiad 2021, including the principles and wisdom from Bhagavad Gita. These seminars will be conducted on every Sunday starting 1st August 2021 and ending on 26th September 2021, with the last 2 sessions being workshops.
The topics will be:
– Inner climate change to outer climate change – Importance of Value education in fighting climate change – By Gauranga Das (Director, Govardhan Ecovillage) on 1st Aug 2021
The dates for the 7 sessions will be 1st Aug, 8th Aug, 15th Aug, 22nd Aug, 29th Aug, 5th Sep and 12th Sep. The timings for the sessions will be 2-3.30 pm
