OCTOBER 24, 2020

Continuing with the relentless efforts to achieve UNSDG Goal 3 - Good Health and Well Being, the Amygdala Forum on October 20, 2020, brought together students from India, Kazakhstan, Republic of Korea, Vietnam, Nepal, Philippines and Lebanon, on a single platform to share experiences on the topic ‘Believing in Yourself is the Key to Good Health’. The event was in lieu of the 75th UN Day on October 24, 2020, with the theme ‘The Future We Want, the UN We Need: Reaffirming our Collective Commitment to Multilateralism’. Students shared their endeavours which made them realize how self-belief was the key to inner peace, satisfaction and confidence, which made the atmosphere inspiring and bolstered positivity amongst them. It was mutually acknowledged that we are programmed to always doubt ourselves but through initiatives like these we can change such notions and retrain ourselves to work towards the improvement of our mental health. As the event concluded mentor teachers from each school shared how valuable this session was for them, their students and why the concept of believing in yourself was certainly an important path to follow.
