Global Event of Solar Assemblage - 2nd October 2019

Fifty students along with five teachers from Science Department participated in Global Solar Assemblage held at IGI stadium, Delhi on 2nd October 2019. It was an event organised to commemorate 150th birth anniversary of Father of the nation Mahatma Gandhi. It was simultaneously held at 5000 different locations across India and around 60 other countries. Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay along with MNRE organized this historical event. The Students learnt about how the global temperatures are constantly rising and its impacts on life. Earth Shoot Day i.e. the day of measuring sustainability in terms of the total resources produced by earth and their consumption was discussed in detail. Students were made aware of the fact that if same amount is consumed then there is balance but if the consumption exceeds that of production, then consumption is overshot. The consumption and generation of energy should have a holistic approach, so that it has no adverse implications on the Earth. In the year 2018-19 the Earth Shoot Day arrived in July itself instead in the month of December. Gandhiji’s words of wisdom were recalled that earth gives enough for every one’s need but not for every one’s greed. Relevance of the two Gandhian principles even today was discussed i.e. ’ Production by Masses and not mass production.
Students were given a glimpse into the idea of Energy Swaraj or localized energy self-sufficiency. Energy Swaraj is when communities generate and produce their own energy. It is a state wherein the individuals and communities become sensitive to their own energy needs and become self-aware to govern the generation and consumption of energy within the community such that it is sustainable to live on the earth. Energy Swaraj is based on the AMG Principle: Avoiding the energy needs if they can be avoided, Minimizing the energy needs if they can be minimized and further on, generating the energy by oneself. Based on this concept, the students then assembled their own solar lamps under the guidance of teachers. Two Guinness World Records for the following titles were set in the presence of Ministers like Shri R.K Singh of MNRE, Shri. Prakash Javadekar, Union Minister of Environment, Forest and Climate Change and several other ministers and Ambassadors.
1. A Historical Attempt by students in India on 2nd October, 2019 to create a record - Most People Assembling Solar Powered Lamps simultaneously.
2. Broke the record of - The largest environmental sustainability lesson which is at 2,289 participants, achieved by Larsen & Toubro, Water and Effluent Treatment IC (India) at Chennai, India, on 16 March 2018. The new record set was at 4780.
The programme culminated with a pledge towards nonviolence and lighting of all the solar lamps. Students took immense interest and participated enthusiastically.They learnt the physics of each component used in the assemblage such as Load wire, LED, PCB etc. They also soldered the components themselves. Students engaged in team work and collaboration. The event was a great exposure to the students. It was indeed a proud moment for the students and the teachers to be a part of this grand event of Guinness world records.
