Semenza, the Nobel Prize Winner in Medicine for 2019 said that world needs leaders to recognise the climate crisis and be prepared to respond with the science and tech tools. World needs young leaders who understand that the major challenges like the pandemic and climate crisis require global response and international cooperation and I am optimistic that younger generation will succeed with their  firm resolve to make a  difference.

Ajeenkya DY Patil, President, ADYPU said that pandemic has been the most shared event in history. There are many unsung heroes working in the background during the pandemic, be it doctors, nurses, healthcare workers, police and  drivers. Every student must take inspiration from them. I always believe that campuses are great levellers where every individual comes as an equal student and share their thoughts and joys. Every student has potential to change the world and everyone must do their bit for the society. Humanity needs to get together, with more compassion. Humans need love, affection and healing .This is the best time to do something for the society and create happiness for the world when it needs the most.
