Academic institutions & govt should work closely: Sisodia

New Delhi: Deputy Chief Minister and Delhi Education Minister Manish Sisodia while attending as the chief guest to the inaugural function of the international conference on sustainable development organised by IP University on Wednesday stressed urgent need for academic institutions and the government to work together to formulate the policies around Sustainable Development.

He was of the firm view that academicians and the government if working in isolation, would not be able to bring any major development in the concerned domains. "Working as an Education Minister of Delhi for the last five years, I have learnt that when we talk about serious issues like these, it is important for the government and the academic institutions to come together and find a solution. That translates any decision, or understanding coming out of such conferences into a matter of governance, and that's how we come close to achieving our goals. So academic institutions and the government should complement each other, and work closely," said Sisodia.

Giving the reference of Greta Thunberg, the teen climate activist, who took the world by surprise when she gave a hard-hitting speech about the devastating impact of climate breakdown, Sisodia also stressed on the need to educate and involve our young generations when taking key decisions on policies and issues around sustainable development, that would eventually affect their lives in the years to come.
