On the 16th of November 2023, BSG orchestrated a groundbreaking SOHA exhibition at Amazon’s Hyderabad Campus, marking the first such instance in a corporate environment. This was also the 97th SOHA exhibition conducted by BSG since 2021. It drew an audience of over 120 individuals, predominantly comprising enthusiastic young attendees. The exhibition provided them with an enlightening experience, emphasizing the potential of young people as ‘Agents of Change,’ vividly depicted through informative panels elucidated by dedicated BSG volunteers.
The SOHA exhibition showcases diverse thematic panels covering critical subjects such as climate change, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the ‘BSG for SDG’ app, and an interactive platform inviting online participants to share their ideas for actionable change. Central to its message was the concept of the “Power of One,” highlighting the pivotal role of youth in shaping a more sustainable world. The exhibition, which is structured around five core themes – “Inspire, Learn, Reflect, Empower, Act & Lead,” aligns with UNESCO’s ESD for 2030 initiative, fostering education for sustainable development.
