About Coalescence 2018
Coalescence has been organized as a platform for industry-academy linkage with the common purpose of highlighting issues and finding solutions on matters related to sustainability in India and the world. The event was first organized in 2008. Coalescence-2018 will be a two day event from 21st to 22nd of September with an overarching theme of TRIPLE BOTTOM LINE: issues, solutions, adventure & beyond.
From deciding the theme, list of speakers, contacting them, raising funds, event management, promotion and hospitality are taken care by the students themselves. The student community works day and night together to take care of all the arrangements and to deliver a two-day experience of brilliant intellectual discourse. The journey to this grand event is completed by the students successfully by converting the whole painstaking process into an opportunity of working together with each other and spending time together. This year also the students from both PGDFM ‘19 and PGDFM ’20 came together to put forward a splendid display of their talents to culminate Coalescence’ 18 with success and taking it to new heights.
Within Coalescence-2018 a case study based competition named ABHIPSA has been organized. The case study would relate itself to an environmental issue for which the contestants need to find out a solution. As waste management in Tier-2 cities is an environmental menace across India it is emerging as a national issue. IIFM through this platform would highlight the problem and make a step towards solving it.
