Inspirational Talk Series

The "Inspirational Talk Series" is organized to inspire students using different life stories and the journeys of academics and other professionals so that students realize that everyone's story is different. Everyone has their desires, priorities, successes, and failures, which would not affect being successful personalities one day.

At the same time, during each talk, the society attempts to introduce essential concepts related to creating sustainable environments and development, focusing on the United Nations' sustainable development goals.

Under this program, Prof Charmalie Abayasekara will be conducting the 1st talk. We try to introduce the concepts of "Going Ecofriendly and Zero Waste" and the participants are encouraged to bring reusable and eco-friendly materials (picnic blankets) and a lunch that produces no waste after eating (brown bag lunch).
