Sustainability Tweet – A – Thon
In 2021, CSSA conducted a unique tweet-a-thon to orient GIM students towards sustainability, promote a sustainability mindset and highlight the importance of sustainability practices in their daily activities. The event was spread across four weeks of August and covered topics such as decent work, inclusion, empathy and diversity. Students had to tweet on the relevance of the given theme in organisational context, share a good practice from an organisation and narrate how they would address the given theme in their future workplace.
Social Impact Photography
This event was designed to nudge students to capture moments, events which highlight social impact, visually. This event received an overwhelming response. The topics of photographs ranged from poverty eradication, zero hunger, gender equality, peace, and justice.
Make the Case
In 2020, a unique case study competition know as Make the Case was conceptualised and implemented by the Centre for Social Sensitivity and Action (CSSA), the Goa Institute of Management, in collaboration with Commitments Accelerator for Plastic Pollution (CAPP), the Ocean Recovery Alliance (ORA) and the Indian Plastic Institute (IPI).
The objective of the competition was to generate awareness about and discuss ways to tackle plastic waste in India. The aim was to nudge youth to take an interest in issues related to sustainable development and make them the green crusaders in their respective institutions. The other major objective of the competition was to showcase the power of Public-Private Partnership for tackling plastic waste in India.
The competition has been included in a compendium published by United Nations Office of South-South Cooperation on ‘Good Practices in South-South and Triangular Cooperation for Sustainable Development’– Volume 4, 2022.
