Observing the World Children’s Day 2020

World Children’s Day is UNICEF’s global day of action for children, by children, marking the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child on November 20 in 1989. World Children’s Day 2020 is taking place under very different circumstances due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is a time for all of us to come together to reimagine the world we want to create. On the occasion, GUSEC has partnered with UNICEF to launch the Children Innovation Festival 2020.

Children in India have so much potential. This year, they have shown that they have a significant role to play in shaping a safer, greener and more inclusive future. This #WorldChildrensDay, GUSEC is going blue to encourage children to always share their ideas and lead the way.

Launch of Children Innovation Festival 2020

The Children Innovation Festival (CIF) is a GUSEC flagship program, organised in partnership with UNICEF. This year marks the second edition of the program. In furtherance of its belief that ‘one cannot put an age bar on innovation’, the CIF aims to scout and guide children and support them as they carve their way into the entrepreneurial ecosystem. The festival is open to all children under the age of 18, who have innovative ideas and want to work on the same.

Glimpses of CIF 2019

CIF 2019 was launched in August 2019. Out of 450+ applications received, 130 ideas were shortlisted for a boot camp in Ahmedabad. About 30 ideas were selected for incubation at GUSEC, with students representing 9 districts of Gujarat and the youngest participant belonging to class 5th.

The Felicitation Ceremony of the winning teams took place in presence of the Chief Minister of Gujarat, Shri Vijay Rupani, and other dignitaries. CIF 2019 also saw the visit of Dr Yasmin Ali Haque, UNICEF India Country Representative, who interacted with the student innovators shortlisted for incubation at GUSEC.

The GUSEC Community

We, at GUSEC, house over 100 startups and that has proven to be one of the biggest points of vantage for us as well as our community members. This closely knit circuit comprises a huge part of the startup ecosystem of the state. In addition, in-house and virtually instated entrepreneurs and their teams have built an understanding and bond with each other that accelerates their growth. Over the years, from celebrating success stories, festivals and the spirit of entrepreneurship, the community has witnessed a lot together.

The community hosts Diwali gatherings, monthly meetups called Docknings, and tend to unwind by playing board games and sports together. It’s believed that productivity has a very close relationship with the work environment, and here, it’s both nurturing and positive.
