  • 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.

  • In order to undertake the programme in a systematic way the Department has identified 93 schools and 2 colleges as Lead Schools and about 25-30 schools/colleges are attached to each lead school for proper coordination and implementation of various activities. Each lead eco-club school/college teacher has been trained as master trainer on environmental issues. Orientation programmes for Eco Club incharge teachers are also conducted with the help of Environment experts.  The students are also exposed to field activities such as Nature Trails, Quiz and poster competitions etc. so as to create enthusiasm regarding issues pertaining to Plants/Forest/Wildlife/Bio-diversity and Nature.
