Round-1 Quiz

Date : 22nd, August
Time : 09:00 PM

First Round Shortlists have been declared. Shortlisted teams have been intimated separately

About the event :

The idea that will change the world. Everybody seems to be seeking it. Here is something to mull over: How can you change the world when you can’t save it? What is that one small step that can make a big difference? There is no set of equations or past references.
Just a simple problem: Think up some out-of-the-box solutions to make college fests around the country more green and sustainable.
Anybody could identify a problem, there is a large section that may even be able to solve it, but what we expect from you is a constructive twist to the solutions, which feeds into the solution system that is sustainable and satisfies all stakeholders, including mother nature
That’s the idea we are looking for. If you think that yours’ fits the bill, then give us a plan that will bring it to life. 
The Red Brick Summit ’18 in collaboration with Prakriti, the nature club of IIMA brings to you a unique challenge in the form of Sustain – an event where you lead the scene to keep it green.
What’s in it for you? Other than the prize, it’s a platform to test how far you can push your boundaries and help the most crucial link in the chain- the nature!

Round 1: Online Quiz
An online screening quiz round based on questions on sustainability industry, environment-related government policies as well as domestic and international events related to the same

Round 2: Case-based Submission 
Participants would be given a small caselet with a problem statement around environmental sustainability issues. They would be required to submit a presentation on the same, which would serve as a qualifying criterion for the final round

Round 3: On Campus Survey
In this round, the participant will be required to step into the shoes of the TRBS coordinator, identify and analyse different activities and aspects of TRBS, 2018, and come up with a proposition to make TRBS 2019 a completely “Green Fest”. 
You need to formulate an innovative model for a management fest, designed around the need to make it a sustainable fest by reducing the carbon footprint, and basically removing the myth that a management fest and a green fest are two paradoxical ideas.
Your focus should be on acutely observing how the different activities are happening currently and for this, you will be required to move around the campus and talk to different stakeholders and incorporate the insights picked up live on the campus
