We all know that we are a part of the environment we live in and the solution to many environmental problems lie in our attitude towards the environment. Be it awareness to keep our surroundings clean or the realization to conserve natural resources by re-using and recycling wherever possible, they all are attitudinal. On the surface it looks simple but changing the attitude of 100 crore people is not going to happen overnight. The best way to attempt to bring about a change in the attitude in the society is through children. Here comes the role of Eco Club that plays a very important role in creating environmental awareness amongst the future generation.
This club has a great vision ahead as it is an “ENVIRONMENT SAVIOUR CLUB” and its prime focus is on how to keep the environment free from pollution and green environment where we can breathe freely.
Following activities were conducted for the session
Upcycling- The objective of the first Eco Club activity was to create unique magazines collages by reusing old magazines and inculcating value of Upcycling in students.
Tyre and Stone Painting- The used tyres are threat to the environment as they are non-biodegradable and finally accumulate in landfills as waste or burnt for fuel, so students were made aware about the threats related to tyres. Students painted the used tyres and stones for Tyre garden.
And this is where our students could take a little bit of their share , strongly motivated by Mrs Nidhi Jain of course … Some of these tyres this time became a stool .
The Garbage Guru’s Guide to Bottle Planter’s- The purpose of “Bottle Planter’s” activity was to expose students to a meaningful, practical way to reuse a common waste product and to raise awareness of the overuse of disposable water bottles. The activity was carried out under the able guidance of Mrs. Ashwini Pethe , Managing Director of Pune Biennale Foundation, a parent volunteer and an architect by profession.
Students of Vikhe Patil Memorial School along with Eco Club teachers painted a public wall at Bal Bharati opposite to symbiosis college to give message of Environment Conservation and improve the “forgotten” spaces in the public area.
Eco Club had a visit to the Empress Botanical Garden Camp, Pune for the Annual Flower and the Biennale Show which is a great and popular show for hundreds of participants and more than 50000 visitors.
