What is the YES Programme?

We talk a lot about sustainability, but what does that word actually mean? Is it a personal choice or a movement and legal construct that governments need to adopt? Is there such a thing as a 'sustainable lifestyle', or is it just a fad? Is it possible to practice ‘sustainable’ housing and agriculture while sheltering and feeding the billions of people on Earth?

Our week-long ‘YES: Youth, Environment, Sustainability’ Programme will help you explore these topics and more.

How does it work?

You will participate in interactive discussions, field trips, role plays, debates, and workshops conducted by experts in the field — activists, entrepreneurs, policy-makers, practitioners, and academicians. At YES, you will learn from these experts alongside students from around the world, giving you valuable insight into how different cultures approach sustainable living.

At the end of the programme, you will be equipped to make informed and sustainable choices, enabling you to lead projects of change within your community and beyond.

The focus areas in the past years have included:
  • Solid Waste Management

    Sustainability in Civic Services provided by Mega Cities

  • Food and Agriculture

    Understanding GMO & Organic Farming in the context of scale.

  • Sustainable Human Habitats

    Development or destruction, where do we draw the line?

  • Wildlife Conservation

    Biodiversity and its state in a human dominated landscape
