On 2nd October, the poster/video making competition captured the thoughts of the young generation through engaging visuals and sketches on the theme “Gandhiji as CEO” and “Managerial teachings by Gandhiji”. A thematic display of books on the life of Gandhiji and various inspirations drawn from his exemplary life was available for book enthusiasts on campus.

The WeSchool team ‘Parivartan’ also won at Mumbai University New Initiative for Action Now (MUNIJAN 2018) for proposing a backyard composting project of 7000 kgs waste in two months. Their unique proposition to include 25 college campus waste through three C’s – collect, collaborate, compost and inclusion of social media campaign #TheCompostChallenge won appreciation from the jury.

Addressing the students, Prof. Dr Uday Salunkhe, Group Director, WeSchool, said “It is the power and potentiality of the youth that if harnessed prudently can become the instruments of social change, thereby making this world a better place to live, While we grapple with modern day complexities, we need to remind ourselves of the simplicities of life as taught by Gandhiji. At WeSchool, where we nurture and hone talent and enable them to become global leaders who are excited rather than worried and look at the plethora of opportunities for pioneering & brave work that can transform the society. Personal contribution to the nation’s progress resonates with the Mahatma Gandhi’s  teaching of ‘Be the change you want to see in the world’ will encourage many to begin with the new ‘I’.”
