Tree Clubs in Schools and Colleges
The carbon storage capacity of forests is approximately three times as large as the pool of carbon in the atmosphere. If forests are changed, reduced, or eliminated, the captured carbon goes into the atmosphere as carbon dioxide (CO2). Despite their importance to life as we know it, humans have cut down half of all the trees on the planet so far. Every year we cut down over 50,000 square miles of forest worldwide for paper, agriculture, building materials and fuel. That’s an area the size of the state of Tamil Nadu Every year!
To create environmental awareness in the younger generation and make them participate in the tree plantation drive. Also we boost their motivation by giving them due recognition of their participation.
Eco Clubs in Schools and Colleges is play an important role in creating environmental awareness amongst the future generation. Clubs have been established in Government, Aided, Private, Public Schools and Colleges of Tamil Nadu.
The activities under the scheme include:
- Motivate the students to keep their surroundings green and clean by undertaking plantation of trees.
- Promote ethos of conservation of water by minimizing the use of water.
- Motivate students to imbibe habits and life style for minimum waste generation, source separation of waste and disposing the waste to the nearest storage point.
- Educate students to create awareness amongst public and sanitary workers, so as to stop the indiscriminate burning of waste which causes respiratory diseases.
- Sensitize the students to use of plastic bags.
- Organize tree plantation programs, awareness programs such as Quiz, Essay, Painting competitions, Drama etc. regarding various environmental issues and educate children about re-use of waste material & preparation of products out of waste
In order to undertake the program in a systematic way eco-club school/college teacher has been trained as master trainer on environmental issues. Orientation programs for Eco Club in charge teachers are also conducted with the help of Environment experts. The students are also exposed to field activities such as Tree plantation drive.
