He emphasized that it would help the youths contribute to developing a culture of sustainability in development works by preserving nature and creating employment opportunities.

KCC Principal Raju Kattel noted that the program had inspired youths to learn practical measures to serve communities in a sustainable way and make the best use of their education.
