The children’s competitions held at the UB City amphitheatre comprised of a debate, quiz and art competition.

This 3-day programme in August had children from over 12 schools participate in events that raised awareness about the environment, ecological crises and the conservation of wildlife in our country.

 

The events were an unqualified success, and the students, a happy lot.

DEBATE

The children of today are the citizens of tomorrow. They are our future leaders, role models, innovators, and conservationists. We at RoundGlass Samsara are here to provoke thoughts and ideas, planting seeds of conservation and environmental consciousness in these young minds, taking a step forward to building a better planet.

 

The importance of addressing opposing views encourages the understanding and awareness of issues in the world. The Children’s Debate Competition that was held at the UB City Amphitheatre on the 9th of August, 2017, allowed the back and forth of ideas in an environment that nurtured the children of tomorrow to discuss and contest the important issues of today.

Topics for debate were:

Is Progress Coming In The Way of Our Environment?
Climate Change- Human Induced or an Elaborate Hoax?
Are Zoos Cruel or Necessary for Education?

With children, participating from 12 schools across the city, sharing their views with great conviction, the RoundGlass Samsara Debate Competition was a grand success.

ART

Artists like Banksy and Kuczynski effortlessly bring a spectator’s attention to the issues of everyday life through their works. An important and thought-provoking pedestal for an artistic journey, art competitions help participants reflect upon their work. Various ideas for art unify thoughts, individuals and what they stand for, to consider their work as a whole, and bring awareness to the topic at hand. Considering an outside perspective to their innermost thoughts, the RoundGlass Samsara Art Competition, held at the UB City amphitheatre on the 11th of August, 2017, enabled the young artists to showcase their best work.
The astounding range of thoughts that were beautifully portrayed, made the event a joyful one.
