STORY OF GREEN & CLEAN INT

Affinity With Mother Earth

Student Eco Clubs and Community Eco Groups for the adults in the villages have been initiated and implemented for the past one decade. Each club has 20-25 children/adults. Children and the adults are involved in addressing environmental issues through various programs, viz. planting and protecting new tree saplings, periodically cleaning the important locations in the villages/towns, conducting regular awareness campaigns to the public about the environmental issues, viz. causes & effects of pollution, importance of keeping the environment clean, importance of proper waste disposal, importance of recycling wastes, etc. Since childhood is the best period for sustained behavior modification, children are targeted, sensitized and involved in environmental protection activities and adults are motivated as they look at the involvement of the children. We periodically organize exposure visits for the eco club members where children from different setting have the opportunity to interact, learn from each other, allowing them to view practical/real-life situations. viz. integrated farms, locations with diversified flora and fauna, research facilities, etc. Our tree saplings plantation drives have significantly contributed towards improving the green cover, which would eventually improve the air quality and recharging & retaining ground water.
