Theme: CHAMPIONING AND ACCELERATING SOLUTIONS TO THE CLIMATE CRISIS
Our current grappling ground reality is that we have very little consciousness of how our human activities aredamaging our planet. In that context, whenever there is an ecological problemit is thought of as a political or a social problem not an ecological one. Economy, social unrest, conflict resolution, none of them is as important as Ecological sustainability!
Ecological consciousness is the need of the hour as our very existence is connected to ecology. Covid 19 was that wake-upcall,a message fromthe planet. We witnessed devastating impact of a virus – as we sequestered ourselves the planet repaired itself. A large part of us is bacteria, microorganisms, genes and virus, they are us – without them we cannot exist but without us they can – a revelation that cannot be subverted or ignored!
Further, we need to move from an individual consciousness to a collective consciousness. So much so that the ecological regeneration shouldbecome a global phenomenon, an extraordinary and phenomenal movement towards Ecological sustainability.
Billabong High International Kanpur’s one such endeavour towards curating ecological consciousness towards ecological sustainability is TEDxBHISKANPUR. We whole heartedly believe that change always begins with meaningful conversations within our community and beyond. Our phenomenal line up of speakers invested in ecological sustainability is a testimony to that belief and our stellar community of teachers, students and parents resonate the same at all times. We are extremely privileged to have a global footprint with the TEDx platform to further nudge and pivot towards a collective global consciousness.
TEDxBHISKANPUR is planned and coordinated independently under a license from TED in line with the spirit of TED’s mission, of “ideas worth spreading,” It is an exclusive, invite only event of 100 attendees within our school campus.
We have put together a stellar lineup of speakers that are outstanding and promise to deliver speeches that will inspire, connect, narrate, explain persuade and reveal.
