On the occasion of World Children’s Day (Nov 20), Gujarat University Startup & Entrepreneurship Council (GUSEC), in partnership with UNICEF launched the second edition of its flagship program for young innovators, the Children Innovation Festival (CIF). The launch event was presided over by the Hon’ble Education Minister of Gujarat, Shri Bhupendrasinh Chudasama.
Gujarat University earmarked the occasion of the launch as well as its solidarity with UNICEF by going blue, in accordance with UNICEF’s #GoBlue campaign to raise awareness for children’s rights, an effort that UNICEF India was quick to recognise and praise on their social media.
