IM Sagar Shah’s talk on how to introduce chess at grassroots and in schools | Chess-O-Disha

Chess in Schools is a project that everyone speaks about and it sounds extremely ideal to implement. Chess is a positive sport and there are a lot of learnings from it. Introducing it in schools would only enhance the lives of the young generation of the country. However, the ground reality is that implementation of the Chess in Schools program is extremely tough.

In order to make the chess in schools program a reality in Odisha, IM Sagar Shah was invited to the Chess-O-Disha seminar which was held in Bhubaneshwar on 8th of October 2023 by the Government of Odisha. The idea was to identify the roadmap of how to introduce chess at the grassroot level and chess in schools.

Most of the time in such conferences, a lot of time is dedicated to speaking about the curriculum that should be implemented and while the curriculum is important, what Sagar tried to focus on is how to build a culture of chess in a region more than just the syllabus. If you are a person who wants to introduce chess in your school, in your locality, or in your city, this video can give you some interesting ideas to play with.
