Green Schools Campaign
The Green Schools Campaign is an exciting hands-on programme, open to all schools in Mumbai, that educates children on their responsibility towards the environment and also offers them the opportunity to actually be involved in relevant environmental projects! This Campaign took off in 2010 with 12 participating schools and that number has now grown to over 50 schools!
The theme for the Fourteenth Edition (2023-2024) of the Campaign is 'Saving Blue'
Saving Blue simply means protecting and conserving our liquid gold i.e., water, by raising awareness about water-related issues faced in Mumbai, and promoting water conservation and management. In 2019, Mumbai city adopted the Mumbai Climate Action Plan (MCAP), which aims to highlight demographic data, define socio-economic and ecological features of the city, create a ‘climate profile’ by setting tangible emission reduction goals and developing action and implementation strategies. These may be achieved, by conducting an in-depth sector analysis across six key areas. Last year we focused on Sustainable Waste Management, and Urban Greening and Biodiversity. This year, we will focus on Urban Flooding and Water Resource Management. Hence, throughout this academic year, we will assist the students in:
The Story of Water: Introduction to MCAP, basics of water as a resource and sources of water.
Diving in the Big Blues: Explore the marine and freshwater biomes, water-related natural disasters, and other issues surrounding water.
A Fresh Start: Exploring and learning to adopt nature-based solutions for water conservation and flood-risk management.
