Kashmiri student wins Global Youth Award in Germany
Emaad was also awarded at The International Education Exhibition held as a part of the lakes and rivers conclave
Emaad Muzaffar Makhdoomi, a 10th standard Kashmiri student currently studying at Manav Rachna International Educational Institute, Gurgaon, was recently conferred with “The Global Youth Award” at The International Lakes and Rivers Conclave in Frankfurt, Germany.
Emaad Muzaffar Makhdoomi, 17, participated in The International Lakes and Rivers Conclave and The International Educational Exhibition held in Frankfurt, Germany from 24th March to 28th March. He had earlier qualified the National Championship of this conclave as The National Champion of India in Mumbai. This conclave was held with an aim to bring youth (in the age group of 16-25 years) from across Asia and Pacific regions together and focus on lakes and rivers, including research and management challenges, and the implications of such issues for sustainable use of these important water systems.
After performing well in various strategic competitions held in the conclave, Emaad Muzaffar was conferred with the “The Global Youth Award”. Emaad also brought laurels for his institution Manav Rachna Int’l Schools by winning “The Modern Technology Education Award” and “The Global Education Award” for Manav Rachna Int’l University, which he was representing at The International Education Exhibition held as a part of the lakes and rivers conclave.
While addressing a gathering of 400 plus delegates from Asia and Pacific Regions, Emaad talked about the efforts of different Non-government organizations with reference to the conservation of lakes such as Nigeen, Dal and Wular in Kashmir. He said that such conservation measures, reforms and policies can only be implemented when people living around give support and co-operation to the cause. He also requested delegates from Asia and Pacific region to deeply introspect about the huge amount of money spent on the conservation causes and compare them with their respective outcomes.
In the past Emaad has been conferred with the “The Best Delegate Award” at the Model UN Conference held in Dubai UAE. Emaad has also bagged many awards previously at various conferences and seminars held for students of schools and colleges in New-Delhi.
“It has been just three years that Emaad has been with us, he has not only made his parents proud but has also put the Manav Rachna flag on the educational map of the world. The entire family of Manav Rachna joins in celebrating his achievement and we are very proud to have him,” said Dr. O.P Bhalla, The Chancellor and The President of Manav Rachna International Group of Educational Institutions.
