Eco-Champs | Empowering children to build a sustainable future

About This Project

An initiative of Bhumi to inculcate eco-friendly habits 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, focusing on Global Goal #11.

Why?

India produces 62 million tonnes of garbage every year. Air pollution kills 1.2 million Indians in a year, third biggest cause of death. Household wastes constitutes majority of the garbage dump that engulfs the world in pollution. Some major impacts due to the aftermath of ineffective waste management witnessed globally include:

  • Ground-water contamination
  • Pollution and exhaustion of our everyday resources
  • Life of millions of humans and animals are directly affected

It is high time that we step up our actions before it is too late.
