The Exhibition ‘Seeds of Hope & Action (SOHA): Making the SDGs a Reality’ was held on 12th November 2021 at Symbiosis Law School, Pune
The exhibition is a joint initiative of the SGI and the Earth Charter International and it introduces a positive vision for sustainable living that can contribute to the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The online exhibition was organized with the joint efforts by the BSG and the Ecocon Cell of Symbiosis Law School (SLS). Around 200 students and faculty viewed the exhibition.
The exhibition started with an introductory video detailing the activities of BSG and SGI President Daisaku Ikeda. This was followed by a melodious rendition of the song ‘Heal the World’ by one of the students.
A group of students from the ECOCON Cell presented the panels and elaborated on the need to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) through individual actions. Several examples of the ‘Power of One’ to bring about a great transformation in society, from the exhibition panels, were shared by the students.
The exhibition concluded with a Question-Answer session in which students asked various questions on implementation of SDGs at an individual level and on a larger scale.
Dy Director (SLS), Dr. Aparajita Mohanty, thanked BSG for organizing the exhibition and reiterated the message of the panels that the determination and actions of one single individual can become the source of great change.
