  1. It is the right time to set initiatives on such competitive activities. These can be creativity instilling for the young minds that are in hibernation mode. I loved the “Smart & sustainable buildings and cities” part. I really hope the plans they come up adhere with the post-covid era that the world is preparing to face.
