Goal 11 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals focuses on sustainable cities and communities and looks at ways of making cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.

Our vision is one of inter connectedness (expressed through individual cogs that work together), not only of various aspects of every day living, but also of time and experience and how the past is integral to the conception of any future. This has seen us reach back to our resilient traditions in our use of Gond art to chart a path where we can once again be one with nature. The Gond tribal community is one of the largest indigenous communities of Central India and their art is an expression of their everyday quest for life. We envision this quest as an inclusive one that locates modernity and development within the context of nature and an appreciation of life in all its forms.

The canvas reflects Vasant Valley School's own efforts toward building a sustainable school community as the microcosm for our larger vision. At school, we have a robust environment and outreach programme that encourages 4 Rs – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Reach out. We are continuing to encourage this environmental consciousness as a way of life by promoting car pools, using solar panels, reusing water, recycling waste, and constantly sharing ways and ideas to reduce our footprint.

Gond art reflects the belief that "viewing a good image begets good luck", and our canvas embodies our efforts, faith and vision to help transform the world.
