Sustainability Initiatives was approached by STES to conduct a workshop during Excelsior -their annual event- to introduce the concept and development of green buildings to students of different educational courses. Excelsior is a 3-day national level technical fest organized by Sinhagad Technical Education Society(STES). The workshop aimed not only at being informative but also interactive so that students get some hands-on knowledge of conceptualizing, designing Green buildings. This seminar also introduced Green Building as a career option for students.
In addition to presentations and lectures, a quiz and a group activity was also included in the workshop. About 50 students from
architecture, civil engineering and other academic streams participated to understand the concepts of green building and also get some hands-on knowledge of conceptualizing and designing Green buildings.
