SNEH International School organized “A Talk With An Expert” for the students of Classes 11 and 12 (Science Stream) as a part of ISA Activity ‘Every Step Counts-Carbon footprints’ on August 4, 2020 via a Zoom Meeting. Mr. Ajit Kumar, founder of Khushigram –a sustainable village and an active member of Mission Green Delhi; and Ms. Mrigya Mukaam, an environmentalist and a pioneer member of Mission Green Delhi, graced the occasion and guided the students.
Mr. Ajit Kumar interacted with the students and suggested various methods that could be adopted in our daily lives to help us reduce our carbon footprints. He also laid stress on increasing kindness footprint rather than carbon footprint and insisted on sharing and pooling resources to minimize waste. Ms. Mrigya gave simple examples of things we use not realizing the amount of resources involved in its usage just like a piece of chocolate.
Principal, Mrs Alka Mathur, encouraged the students to use electricity wisely as it is first basic step towards reducing ones carbon footprints. Vice Principal, Ms. Komal Dhingra, also gave many examples like that of online shopping that results in too much of packaging material and add to waste. This interactive session proved to be an enriching experience for the students as they actively participated in the discussion.
