Earned Points in the Race: 405
Report: (1) Outreach: We conducted many outreach activities like Tabling, Film Screening and announcement in classes. Major outreach was achieved via Facebook updates on GNEC-Great Power Race page, which currently has 1300 students signed up and growing by an average of 20 students every day. The team put up a 3ft x 2ft poster containing actions to conserve resources & adopt eco-friendly resources on 39 buses plying all through the city’s arterial roads gathering attention of thousands of citizens including students. A massive 8ft x11ft poster of the GPR logo was put up on the main block entrance.
(2) Events: Focused events on sapling plantation, waste collection and recycling were conducted that drew active participation of close to 900 students from the campus. Seminars and the guest lectures that were conducted on renewable energy and recycling also saw a huge turnout of students. We initiated a drive of growing indoor plants in class rooms and dormitories to purify the air and give the feel of being amidst nature. The plants are a symbol of dedication from the Greenades, the campus environment group, to save the environment. The most difficult task undertaken was the collection of 308 kgs of waste paper from across the campus and sent for recycling. The wastes collection drive conducted gathered 70 kgs of wastes in the form of coke tins and plastic wastes and the we placed some bags near canteen, stationery and in Departments and the students are to drop their plastic and paper waste in the bags (chocolate wrappers, plastic covers, and plastic water bottles etc).
Events were conducted for hostel residents, which turned out to be a crowd puller. This created a positive impact in terms of 720 odd students taking the Green Pledge-preserve, conserve, recycle.
We are enthused by the results and change we saw in the few days of the Great Power Race program and we will carry the baton forward even as the Great Power Race ends and promise to create a radical change in the mindsets of the youth in the name of “GREENADES”!!
