News Briefs


We are excited to announce that United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), Faith for Earth Council, Govardhan Eco Village, and the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) are collaborating for the launch of its Value Education Olympiad for the year 2021.

This is a certification program, where each student will get a certificate which will have the credentials of UNEP, Faith for Earth Council, and ISKCON. The certificates would be adding value to the profile of the student, also facilitating their portfolio. 

The Value Education Olympiad 2021 is focused 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. Statistically speaking, the last 7 (seven) years have had the hottest global average temperature on record and this trend is predicted to continue. The air temperature in India specifically has risen about 0.7   between 1901 and 2018. If deterioration continues as it is, our climate and ecosystems may never recover. This program (Value education Olympiad 2021) is to inculcate values amongst the students, which will guide them to act against climate change.  

The program has a registration fee of $ 5 (USD) for each Student. Registration begins on 15th July 2021 and ends on 15th September 2021. A final examination will be conducted on 17th October 2021. The top scorers of the exam are eligible to win some exciting prizes. The course and study material for the program will be provided online and can be viewed at any time. According to a UN study, 6 values play a significant role in sensitizing an individual for the environment and we have included these values under our VEO program

 

1.     Altruism

2.     Trustworthiness

3.     Equity

4.     Justice

5.     Integrity

6.     Honesty

 

As a part of this program, we will be conducting 7 (seven) recorded seminars for the students, every Sunday starting 1st August 2021 and ending on 12th September 2021. Additionally, there will be 2 (two) online environmental workshops, on 19th September and 26th September 2021, which will be delivered by “Sow Good” and will be facilitated by expert environmentalists and theologians.
