Eco-Champs | Empowering children to build a sustainable future

About This Project

An initiative of Bhumi to inculcate eco-friendly habits, which mainly involves waste segregation and waste reduction, among children in schools in their day-to-day life.

The program is designed to encourage students to connect with the environment through various activities, which aim at inducing behavioural changes that stresses the need for environmental preservation through eco-friendly, sustainable practices. The programme is aligned with UN’s Sustainable Development Goal, focussing on Global Goal #11.

 

Why?

Household wastes constitutes majority of the garbage dump that engulfs the world in pollution. The aftermath of ineffective waste management is witnessed globally. In several cities of India, lakes have been turned into dump-yards, wrecking the beauty of nature. Waste disposal has escalated to an alarming level that demands sustainable action to manage and control waste-disposal by households across all regions. 

 

How?

This program will be introduced in schools, where Bhumi will

  • help create a club that leads the school towards eco-friendly practices
  • encourage participation of all stakeholders, including parents and the community.
  • conduct events / competitions that will involve completion of various tasks and activities assigned to students throughout the year at various levels
  • help assess impact on the school and the children

Schools will get due recognition for their effort, on successful implementation of the programme. 

 

Sample activities for schools:

  • Waste segregation
  • Composting
  • Reducing-Reusing-Recycling-Recovering-Refusing
  • Increase of “Green space” like home-gardening or plantation in schools and neighborhood
  • Avoiding usage of plastics through finding innovative alternatives (Refusing plastics)
  • Activities like essay writing, skits and debates on sustainable environment

 

Where?

Bhumi will be launching Season 1 of the ‘Eco-Champs’ programme for schools in Chennai shortly.

 

Further details about the program with respect to registration for school and the events will be announced soon. Follow us on our space in social media for more updates on the program.
