If the future of our city, Bengaluru, was in your hands, how would you want it to look?
Congratulations to Rhea Misquith and Asees Kaur, students of grade 10 at the Inventure Academy, Bengaluru for being named the winning team of the Bengaluru 2070 Comic Book Cover Design Competition.
The artwork brings together the existing conditions of the city including the polluted Varthur lake, the growing traffic, and the overall unkempt nature of the city. A device that helps visualize the future of Bengaluru in 2070, displays modern buildings and cars, better city planning, cleaner lake, and more greenery. This future can be made possible as a result of our own actions such as reducing pollution, not littering, segregating waste, and composting.
- The winning design will be printed on the cover of the comic book.
- The winning team will receive a gift certificate worth Rs. 1,500 from a leading bookstore. Check your email for more information about this.
