  1. 1. IIT KharagpurOrganizing Committee President Speaks“There is a sufficiency in the world for man’s need but not his greed!” a famous quote by Mahatma Gandhi.The current scenario is an exemplar of the above quote with utilities disappearing, water tabledeteriorating, climate rapidly changing, yet the demands constantly soaring high. If this continues at suchan alarming rate without being checked then in no time would we see the end of the world. Severalenvironmental projects have been conceptualized, several attempts made and one such attempt by theAIESEC IIT Kharagpur team, is Vision Green 2010, a corporate, student and faculty conglomeration to addressthese brink circumstances.The primitive goal of Vision Green was to promote Green Technologies and their sustainability in today‟sentrepreneurial world. All the events associated with this campaign are directed towards this goal. The“Learning Networks” workshop conducted by Centre for Environment Education (CEE) saw participation ofover 200 students from IIT Kharagpur not only influencing and inspiring them towards achieving a sustainableworld but also giving them an unforgettable experience.“Global Village” a trademark AIESEC event showcasing its global facet, international reach and diversity ofthe organization. Fusing this with the theme of the proceedings, the foreign interns presented greeninitiatives being implemented in their respective countries. The response was wonderful and it is reallygreat to see the students‟ interest in current global affairs.“Green Business Summit”, flagship event of the Vision Green Campaign, a unified platform for delegates,students, faculty and media to interact and share their expertise, knowledge and future plans regardingenvironmental protection.
