Sensitising of senior citizens to train schools on undertaking environment protection issues.
The objective of this workshop was to sensitise the office-bearers from the ILC-I award winning Senior Citizens’ Organisations (SCOs) from the state of Maharashtra, to train schools on undertaking a project for the current academic year on any one of the environment protection measures that would instil in the students an understanding of these issues.
Col. Shashikant Dalvi, the environment expert, conducted the training and orientation of these senior citizens on issues of Rainwater Harvesting, Solid waste management, Plastic recycling and other issues.
The objective of this workshop is for senior citizens to be the advocates in the field of environment protection in schools by facilitating and creating awareness on the environment in the minds of the school children.
The senior citizens of these organisations would coordinate with the schools which would take up any one of the above topics and see how best the schools can undertake this project.
The seniors are being trained on these issues and they would be collaborating with the schools to undertake work on anyone of these issues.
At the end of the academic year, there would be an Award ceremony to felicitate the organisations and schools that have come up with an excellent project on any of the environment protection measures.
The programme was supported by Gharda Chemicals Limited.
