Eco Club  

ECO CLUB :

Eco clubs in schools are a means by which students can be empowered to participate and take up meaningful environmental activities and projects. It is a forum through which students can reach out to influence and engage their parents and neighbourhood communities to promote sound environmental behaviour. The Eco Club also empowers students to explore environmental concepts and actions beyond the confines of a syllabi or curriculum field of environment education is dogged by a very fundamental contradiction. While everyone, everywhere, asserts the importance of ‘learning to live sustainably,’ environment remains a peripheral issue in the formal schooling system. It continues to be viewed more as an extracurricular activity and less as a subject holding a priority position in the national curriculum.    
 
The Activities under the School Eco Club  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 minimize the use of plastic bags, not to throw them in public places as they choke drains and sewers, cause water logging and provide breeding ground for mosquitoes.
Organize tree plantation programmes, awareness programmes such as Quiz, essay, painting competitions, rallys, nukkad natak etc. regarding various environmental issues and educate children about re-use of waste material & preparation of products out of waste
Organize Nature Trail in Wild Life Sanctuaries / Parks / Forest areas to know about the Bio-diversity.
