TAPMI conducts sustainability fair

A team of students with one of the projects in SEVA Jatre organised by TAPMI, Manipal. 

The Manipal-based TA Pai Management Institute (TAPMI) conducted its annual sustainability fair called SEVA Jatre recently.

This year, the TAPMI team worked on seven Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 30 projects, including gender equality, no poverty, decent work and economic growth, and reduced inequalities.

SEVA Jatre saw the culmination of six months of work done by almost 500 students with 60 faculty mentors. The SEVA team and students worked with about 30 clients ranging from non-governmental organisations, government bodies, small entrepreneurs, and businesses and start-ups, to understand sustainability problems and solve them to the best of their ability.

TAPMI’s status as one of the two United Nations Principles of Responsible Management Education (UNPRME) champion schools in India makes this achievement more apt, the release said.

SEVA Jatre concluded with the SEVA awards ceremony and the announcement of the winning groups. These groups will be given a cash prize and the ability to further participate in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) SOLVE Challenge in 2022.
