Milaap 2018

The first day had only indoor games, the second day had outdoor games like Cricket, relay race and shot put. The third and the last day was equally remarkable with a nerve wrecking football and volleyball match along with Kabaddi. The continuous support and inspiration from a huge audience who were cheering the teams on top of their voice and supporting their team mates was a great energy booster for all the players on and off the ground. The preparation for this day included hard work of several months and days by a dedicated team of students of ISBR to make this event a huge success. This is something very commendable and never the less, the support and enthusiasm of excited supporters also made this event to be a true amalgamation of fun and hard work.

This event was a pleasant break for the students from their hectic schedule and everyone participated whole heartedly and enjoyed the three days to its fullest. The event was very well planned and executed by the coordinators who are the student representatives of the sports club. They also made sure that all the arrangements including first-aid, water and food were properly taken care of with absolute expertise.

At the end of three days, sports club was praised for their immense efforts. The sports club at ISBR looks forward to host such sports activities at regular intervals to keep students physically sound and provide them with much needed entertainment and continue to give everyone the joy of bonding and togetherness.

A CSR initiative by ISBR CSR Club on World Water Day- 22 March

“Wherever you are and whatever you do on March 22, make it about nature and water.” 

What is World Water Day?

World Water Day

Water is synonymous to life. Thus World Water Day, on 22 March every year, is about focusing attention on the importance of water. The theme for World Water Day 2018 was ‘Nature for Water’ – exploring nature-based solutions to the water challenges we face in the 21st century.

Damaged ecosystems affect the quantity and quality of water available for human consumption. Today, 2.1 billion people live without safe drinking water at home; affecting their health, education and livelihoods.

Sustainable Development Goal 6 commits the world to ensuring that everyone has access to safe water by 2030, and includes targets on protecting the natural environment and reducing pollution.

In answer to the UN call on Water Crisis,  We at ISBR- Business School- Electronics City took up the Water Crisis of our City Bangalore which is heading to Zero Day like that of Cape Town in South Africa where water is Rationed and took following action:

  1. Walkathon- ISBR in association with (Electronic City Industry Association) ELCIA organized a walkathon in Electronics City spreading the message on Water Conservation.
  2. Skit on the theme – “Nature for Water” was enacted at the Event of Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) at the the Grand Ashok to generate the social awareness. The audience consisted of around 200, encouraged the ISBR team to perform peerlessly on water conservation theme. According, to Prof Shiva Prakash, Faculty ISBR and Coordinator of the event,” Every drop is precious and through sustainable practice we can survive through the upcoming challenges.”

Mr. Manjunath, PRO of Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board, said,” Solution centric approach is necessary to combat the water crisis. It has become a necessity to change people’s attitude towards water. A sustainable livelihood can only be obtained if mankind reduces their carbon footprint and ensures dynamic conservative practices.”

The skit not only gives a social awareness but also ensures every individual should learn to save every drop being its worth as high as one’s own life.

OORJA 2K17- A CSR Event on Waste Management

Waste Management- A CSR Activity @ ISBRWaste an environmental hazard

With civilization comes the various nuisances. One among them is the waste that gets generated. As ones standard of living moves upward it throws down waste beyond ones capacity to manage. Rapid unchecked growth has given way to growing piles of waste. Today Bangalore the Garden City of yesterdays and the Silicon City till date is headed to become the Garbage City of India. Well, this calls for a serious thought by one and all. Let us all join together and stop this menace.

As the Civic Bodies are battling every day with delegations being sent to nations like Singapore to study their Waste Management Techniques has just brought public flak on themselves. Its time, every citizen take it one ourselves to address this challenge. This is possible by abiding by

REDUCE. RE-USE . RECYCYLCE- WASTE

Before we could think of Reuse and Recycle , we should attempt at Reducing Waste. We need to minimize generating waste. Many of us just go on a buying spree at times even though we may not need them. Women especially seem to be shopaholic and men of late following their footsteps. With ones purse getting fatter there is a tendency to buy things even when one does not need it. Hence once a new one lands at home the earlier one becomes redundant and turns out to be a junk ! when this junk accumulates it leads to what we call as garbage. Be it empty plastic bottles, cartons, packs, furniture, electronic goods, etc.

Many a social organization is trying to drive home this message of late- NO BUY MONTH. We dedicate a month where we pledge not to go out for shopping for unwanted things.#NoBuy, # DeClutterDecember.

To drive home this message among the youth of today, we the CSR Group at ISBR B School had an event on 18 November to create an Social Awareness on Waste and also on other Social Evils of the society. The students came up with many an innovative creation from waste given to them to Recycle.

The Event was in to parts-

Part I- Waste to Wow! Here we saw some great creations made from waste which can find a place in our living rooms as decorate and useful items. Waste -Cartons, Plastics Bottles & Newspapers were put to a more innovative use. Prizes were given away for the best works.

Part II was a Cultural Program of Skits in the form of Street Plays to drive home the message on Social Evils Dowry, Child Marriage, Drug Addiction, Domestic Violence etc.

The Chief Guest for this unique event was from SweepSmart a Dutch government NGO which is trying to provide technology and know-how to our Indian counterpart for efficient management of WASTE. Thereby creating Wealth from Waste by a recycling process.
