Education holds the key to instilling eco-consciousness in the younger generation: Dr Manjula Pooja Shroff at COP28 session

Ahmedabad: Dr. Manjula Pooja Shroff, MD & CEO of Kalorex Group, a name synonymous with excellence in education, was the speaker at a session organised as a part of the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP28), taking place in Dubai.

She expressed her thoughts at the session “Green School for Every Child: Preparing Pupils for the Planet” at the Greening Education Hub in the UAE on Friday. She shared her insights into the pivotal role of education in instilling environmental consciousness and sustainable habits in the younger generation.

In her address, Dr Shroff emphasised the growing awareness among today’s youth about the environmental challenges our planet faces due to past negligence. She highlighted the urgent need for enterprises and startups to contribute to sustainability, aligning with the shifting mindset towards long-term benefits over short-term gains.

As a part of its commitment to set new benchmark in education, Kalorex Group has embraced sustainability at its core. Dr. Shroff underlined the importance of incorporating sustainability into the curriculum, fostering critical thinking, problem-solving skills, and a holistic learning experience.

“As the new generation grows, so does their consciousness of the mistakes made by earlier generations, costing our planet dearly. We must guide them to prioritise sustainability, promote resilience and create a more sustainable and prosperous future for all. There is a need to envision students not just as learners but as proactive advocates of sustainability, instilling values that extend beyond the classroom, and equipping them with the knowledge and passion to contribute meaningfully to a sustainable future,” she said.

Kalorex Group has exemplified its commitment to global sustainability by seamlessly integrating all 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into its K-12 curriculum through a range of engaging activities. This innovative approach ensures that students not only grasp theoretical knowledge but also actively participate in initiatives that address real-world challenges.

Dr. Shroff also spoke about various sustainable practices implemented at Kalorex Group of Schools to conserve the environment. These initiatives include welcoming guests with saplings, art and craft competitions on the theme of reduce, reuse and recycle, rainwater harvesting, tree plantation drives, energy week conservation celebration, participation in environmental research-based projects, best out of waste exhibitions, awareness on waste management, paper recycling, sessions on green practices and environment, and many more.

“Since its inception, Kalorex Group has been unwavering in its commitment to encouraging sustainable and long-term impacts through education. The group recognises the transformative power of education as a catalyst for positive change in individuals and communities and we actively engage with them to drive sustainable practices,” she added.

The session was followed by the launch of Dr. Shroff’s book “Baby Steps to Big Dreams – Essential Conversations for Modern Parents”. The book reiterates her belief that children are the core of our existence, a source of unlimited joy, and the reason we want to excel in all aspects of our lives.
