The iFest 2012 was held in all its glory recently. This online technical festival by IEEE student chapter, IITR served as a podium for young engineers to highlight their intellectual talents and to put them forth in front of the entire world. Green Dream Foundation was the event partner of this online festival. Students from all over the world participated in this grand fest and competed to show off what they are capable of. The main focus of this event was to help engineering aspirers let people know what they hold inside of them and how much talent they actually possess. This was a grand union of intellect, science, and technology.
Students were required to come up with their own idea and design of a ‘green city’, true to its name in all aspects. The challenge was to design a city, putting their imaginary skills in motion, which not just eats green but also works green and lives green completely. This not just drew the attention of the young minds, it was also successful in letting people know of the future of our planet and how it is being destroyed each day. The aim was to spread awareness about population – which is on a constant rise – and the rapidly vanishing forests. The aim was also to let people know that it is indeed possible to live green and save the planet before it is too late.
Indeed, green cities must be developed in order to meet the living demands of people and also to reduce wastage by a significant percentage.
The founders of Green Dream Foundation delivered a seminar on green technologies and their impact on the environment and the movement to save it. More than 100 students from the IITR campus participated in this seminar and interacted with the founders. Abhishek, the Executive Vice President and Co-founder of the organization talked about students’ social responsibility and the myths behind Global Warming. GDF’s Founder and President, Ashish talked about the ways students can go green in today’s modern day perspective. The seminar concluded with the prize distribution for Green Tech, the online event.
