New Climate Justice Ambassadors for India

by Dharmendra Kapri | 17-02-2020 06:56 recommendations 0 recommendations

This Academy was attended by altogether 130 students from 13 schools. It took place in the Springfield Public School, Uttarakhand, India.

 

After a brief welcome and registration process the full attention of the children turned to the presentation "Now we children save the world!" which was given by Plant-for-the-Planet Coordinator, Dharmendra Kapri.  The presentation covered topics like the introduction of Plant-for-the-Planet, sources of CO2, the greenhouse effect, global warming, photosynthesis,  climate change, climate crisis and climate justice . After the presentation, children had the opportunity to ask questions through an interactive question and answer session.

 

After a short break, the children were divided into 6 groups to learn about global distribution and justice in the World Game. The children distributed playing figures, candy and balloons on the world maps respective of the world’s population, wealth and CO2 emissions.  Each group had one Moderator from our Academy team to help them understand the rules and the process. The children were first asked to distribute the balloons, candy and tokens as per as their knowledge and later on corrected by the moderator wherever needed.

 

After that the kids formed 6 public speaking groups and prepared and presented short passages from the opening presentation that they had seen at the start of the day. They gave each other tips on how to improve their presentations in the future and a short session on how to give a good presentation was conducted by Miss Priyanka Chand and Mr. Harshdev Punera.

 

After that I also conducted a session on Tunza Eco-generation and promoted our TEG platform among the students and gave them TEG leaflets, pencils, post-its etc. and reminded them to look at the TEG website to see the wonderful work carried by all of us.


The students then broke for lunch and were able to relax a little and to discuss the topics covered so far with each other. 

 

After lunch was over, the afternoon kicked off with the short introductive videos on Plant-for-the-Planet and how Plant-for-the-Planet plants trees in Mexico as the kids during the presentation session were very curious to know more about this topic.

 

Rested, and feeling energized, the children relocated to the schoolyard to plant their own trees! Before the planting commenced, they listened intently to the advice of the School Eco club in charge Mr. Ashok. He explained how and when to plant trees, and also showed the children how to care for them to make sure they survive. In total they planted 12 trees in just 40 minutes.

 

After a short break we went back to the program. The children started the "World Café" module. There they worked on the following questions as at four stations questions: "How do we ensure that the media reports about us?", "How do we motivate the adults?", "How do we motivate friends and classmates?" and "How do we organize a planting party?"

 

After everyone had the opportunity to write down their thoughts to each question, their thoughts and future plans were presented in front of other students and teachers.

 

After the World Café the students were asked to give shortened version of morning presentations, their future plans and outcomes of the school groups and group discussions.

 

After a long, fruitful, and enjoyable day, all 130 participants received their certificates from Miss Priyanka Chand and Mr. Harshdev Punera, which recognized them as a Climate Justice Ambassadors.  An interesting day had come to an end. Apart from the experience and newly found knowledge, all new Ambassadors took a copy of Tree-by-Tree, and of course the Plant-for-the-Planet T-shirt with them.
