“The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.”

Proud to Ride Cycle
In December 2015, SIGMA-oikos launched a Campus Cycle Project, with a pilot of 36 cycles. The initiative is a small step towards making the campus carbon neutral and aims to reduce the time and effort of students to move between the two campuses. Presently, there are 100 cycles on campus.
Food Wastage Prevention
SIGMA-oikos started an initiative for managing the huge amount of leftover food that gets wasted in the college every day through collaboration with Robin Hood Army & Helping Hearts Foundation- NGOs that coordinate with multiple institutions in Jamshedpur and collect food and make it available for people who can’t afford to buy it.
Food Distribution Drive
This event is aimed at distributing specially prepared food amongst underprivileged people. This initiative is in association with the Helping Hearts Foundation.
Visarjan Awareness Drive
To fight the evil of pollution during Durga Visarjan, Team SIGMA-oikos visits the Domuhani Ghat and spreads awareness about river pollution and helps clean the ghat. This event is done in collaboration with Jampot Greens as a part of the ‘Clean India Green Festivals’ initiative.
This initiative was started in November 2015 with the idea of making the streets of Jamshedpur cleaner while beautifying them with socially responsible messages. Many spots have been cleaned and painted across Jamshedpur, and more such spot-fixing campaigns are conducted year on year by the team.
