The ‘Creativity Marathon’, organised by the Full Sail University, Florida, USA, was a month-long film-making competition in five countries – Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, India, and USA. The challenge was to make a 3 minute long video, suggesting a creative solution to one of the burning problems in the world mentioned under the 17 Sustainable Development Goals for 2030 adopted by the United Nations. The competition was open from 2nd October to 7th November, with various sessions from the Full Sail University. A total of over 600 videos were sent, including 43 from India.
The pupils representing Garden High School were:

Our pupils created the video without stepping out of their homes. It was a great learning experience for them. The following is the Garden High School’s submission:
Humans are a storehouse of wonderful ideas. Say you have an incredible aspiration; how do you go about achieving it? You need a plan, a blueprint to guide your actions. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are such a blueprint, designed to achieve a better future for all. The 2030 Agenda is a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. Inspired by this strive for sustainability, our team has centred it’s presentation around one of the most pressing issues today corresponding to SDG 6: “Clean Water and Sanitation”
This presentation embodies the idea of “Change Begins at Home” and portrays how each of us just doing our own little part in conserving water can have an enormous impact on the quality of life of the people around us, as well as worldwide. Watch along to find out how one drop is equivalent to one life. As we step into this new decade amidst difficult circumstances, one must remember, we must strive to be the change we want to see in the world.
