LM Thapar School of Management strongly advocates the idea of Sustainability in Practice. We believe that the idea of sustainable management can inculcate environmental and ethical awareness, values, attitudes, skills and behaviour needed to be the efficient managers in future.

The Pan year Sustainability in Practice (SiP) curriculum is designed to expose students to the opportunities for multilateral and interdisciplinary exploration of real-life situations and developing sustainable solutions relevant to businesses and the society at large. The core aim of the SiP Curriculum is the development of Social entrepreneurial intentions within the students in such a way that they can contribute towards the idea of “Sustainable and Inclusive development of the Society.”

The student driven projects are vital to understand the values associated with team work, co-operation and inclusiveness in our everyday lives as well as the understanding of sustainable business practices.

Some of the projects undertaken under this Initiative.

 

Integrated Village Development Model for Sustainable rural Development.

The project aims to integrate Sustainable development values at the grassroots level. Any team who undertakes this project adopts a village and helps the village folk in various socio-economic issues related to employment generation, revenue generation, awareness about health and hygiene all while keeping in mind the sustainable goals and values of the curriculum.

 

Inclusivity- Understanding the contribution of marginalized

The projects highlights the importance of everyday employs of an institution like Cleaners, gardeners and security guards who face the propensity of not being acknowledged for their contributions towards effective functioning. The team highlights contribution of these people and extends gratitude to them through various awareness and acknowledgement campaigns.

 

GYAAN–An initiative to spread awareness about the idea of Sustainability in Primary Schools

The teams who undertake this initiative visit multiple primary schools and help the tots understand the basic ideas behind the idea of Sustainability. Various activities related to this idea are organised to create awareness about conservation and judicious use of our everyday resources.

 

Waste Management initiatives within and outside the campus

The teams also visit nearby villages and schools to spread awareness related to waste to waste segregation and waste disposal.

 

Drive Less Campaign

As there is no need to mention that the consumption of fossil fuels is increasing day by day. With the increase in population there is a proportional increase in the usage of personal transport. May it be four- wheelers or two- wheelers. It is high time to bring a change in this pattern and that is exactly the mission of this team. Members of this team are engaged in making people aware about the importance of fossil fuels and its harmful effects of over consumption. They participated in a rally ( WALKATHON ) that took place at very popular sukhna lake, Chandigarh. Students of this group are making sure that they can influence maximum number of people in minimum usage of their mode of transport. With this mission they conduct workshops in various other colleges. It is not about the degree or intensity of change that this movement will bring but it is in fact about making people understand that to bring the change they have to be the change, just like our students.

 

PRME – Principles for Responsible Management Education

The Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) is a United Nations-supported initiative founded in 2007 as a platform to raise the profile of sustainability in schools around the world, and to equip today's business students with the understanding and ability to deliver change tomorrow.

DARK MOONLIGHT

Last night, when the moonlight slipped into my attic room as an oblong of light, I sensed she’d come to commiserate.

It was October. She travelled with a small valise of darkness, and the first few stars returning to the northern sky,

And my room, it seemed, had missed her. She pretended an interest in the bookcase while other objects

Stirred, as in a rock pool, with unexpected life: strings of beads in their green bowl gleamed, the paper-crowded desk;

The books, too, appeared inclined to open and confess. Being sure the moon harboured some intention,

I waited; watched for an age her cool gaze shift first toward a flower sketch pinned on the far wall

Then glide down to recline along the pinewood floor, before I’d had enough. Moon,
