WASTE MANAGEMENT WORKSHOP
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle And Rethink!
Meenakshi Public School, Gurugram organized a Waste Management workshop for students of class IX and XI on 10 October 2018 in the school premises. The workshop was conducted by Ecogreen Energy and PR Professionals in collaboration with Rise Always Welfare Society, a non- profit organization under the campaign “Saath Karenge, Saaf Karenge.”The objective of the workshop was to promote and propagate waste management and the underlying idea is to inculcate a sense of responsibility amongst the students to keep their area clean, since the students are the drivers of “behavioral change.”
In a highly informative and edifying session, Mr Sudhir & Ms Sindhu Nair (Ecogreen), Ms Sukirti Gupta (PR Professionals)and Mr Saurav Srivastav (RAWS, NGO) briefed children about different types of solid waste , proper disposal and gave guidelines for waste management. He said that the solid wastes like non-biodegradable waste, inorganic waste, nuclear waste, agricultural waste, construction and development waste, healthcare waste etc. if not treated scientifically may cause colossal damage to the environment. They appealed children to be active waste management ambassadors. They conducted a Quiz and the winners were elated to receive comics and saplings.
The Director-cum-Principal, Ms Vipula Saxena urged upon the students to be better stewards of our planet by reducing the amount of non-biodegradable items we are sending to landfills. Students found the session very valuable and informative.
