For the occasion of World Environment Day 2020 (hosted by the UN Environment Programme), our team, under our product brand name BijuliPower, organized a virtual escape room competition. Called "Save the Earth and the Earth will Save You," the participants had to solve riddles, decode cyphers and answer questions related to the environment in order to escape the room in the shortest time possible to win.
We had a lot of participants joining us from Nepal as well as from other countries. We would like to congratulate team Youngpreneurs for winning the escape room. On behalf of the winning team, BijuliPower is donating emergency food worth of 130 USD (NPR.15,000) to 10 families working in Kathmandu's safa tempo sector (public electric minibuses).
Thank you to all the participants on joining us for World Environment Day celebration through our virtual escape room!
To add to the World Environment Day celebration, we were more than pleased to have our co-founder and Young Champion of the Earth, Sonika Manandhar, on the AIESEC Global podcast. The podcast is about "youth leadership and youth leadership development." She talked about her journey as a young leader in the green economy and how she is playing a part to go fossil fuel-free through her startup product BijuliPower and company Aeloi Technologies.
When asked about what is youth leadership or what it should be about, she said that it is full of life, empathy and passion. Young leaders have the passion to dive deep into problems and work from bottom-up to find a solution.
"Leadership for me is being authentic, being able to control your own direction and speed to get to your goal in your way!"
