Sesquicentennial Commemorative Orations Program (SCOP)
150 years Celebration of University of Mumbai Partnered by MET, India

Mission: 'To motivate and generate active participation of college youth and academia in attainment of the MDGs as a chosen path for inclusive societal development by utilizing platform offered by the Sesquicentennial Celebrations.'

Highlights:
Sesquicentennial Commemorative Orations Program (SCOP) was partnered by MET for the University of Mumbai's 150 years celebration in 2006 - 07.

Eminent national and international personalities were invited to address the students and faculty of University of Mumbai on a broad range of societal issues.

The programme was launched with an address by Ms. Hanifa Mezoui - Chief, NGO Section, DESA who appealed to the students and academia to participate in attainment of MDGs. Subsequently, eminent economists, entrepreneurs & industrialists also shared their thoughts with students.

SCOP offered a unique platform for the propogation of Vidya Setu/Vidya Shakti for academia / society / industry interaction.

An appeal was made to the corporates to promote industry-academia partnerships for supporting the MDGs. This was further broadened with support of NGOs who partnered with corporates for MDG support.

Linkage to the Innovation Fair:
Since MDGs would lead to development of an inclusive civil society, the college youth must be harnessed for participation internally and externally. Such unique programmes offer a rare opportunity which was utilized by MET.
