68 New Climate Justice Ambassadors for India

by Dharmendra Kapri | 20-02-2020 07:32 recommendations 0 recommendations

On February 06th 2020 another Plant-for-the-Planet academy took place in Government Upper Primary School, Kutri, India. 68 children from 07 schools attended this Academy to become Climate Justice Ambassadors at the end of the day.

 

This day was made possible, because of the dedicative commitment of the Government Upper Primary School, Kutri. The event was free-of-charge for all the attending children.

 

The program started with the ice breaking session as the introductory part of the program where students got the chance to make introduction with all the participants. After that, the session was handed over to Climate Justice Ambassadors; Dharmendra Kapri to give the presentation "Now we save children the world!” The presentation covered: sources of CO2, global warming, photosynthesis, the climate crisis, Plant-for-the-Planet and global justice. These topics were presented in a way suitable for children of the same age. In the subsequent question and answer session, the children had the opportunity to eliminate any ambiguities they may still have had.



The future Climate Justice Ambassadors were then divided into four groups to learn about global distribution and justice in the World Game. The children distributed playing figures, candy and balloons on the world maps laid out on the tables as symbols of the world’s population, wealth and CO2 emissions respectively. Eventually, the CO2 emissions and wealth were distributed fairly everyone has equal rights. After the World Game, the students were taken to the canteen for the lunch where they also had the opportunity to interact with each other about what they´ve just learnt.



Then we talked about Public Speaking Tips. The students were given some slots from the opening presentation that they had seen at the start of the day and they tried to present it to their friends. They gave each other tips on how to improve their presentations in the future which went really great.

 

The students were divided into the school groups to make their specific action plans for each group. Similarly some of the students were divided to discuss upon the ideas of the topics of Word Café. They had a huge group discussion to finally conclude their plans. After every schools made their plan; each school group presented their ideas to everyone.

 

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. 

 


Finally, after the end of erudition modules, the students were already really interested in the most exciting part of the Academy: the Tree Plantation. Together we figured out the perfect spot to plant some trees and the attendees promised to care for the saplings. Altogether the students planted 12 trees of different species.

 

After a long, eventful, and enjoyable day, all 68 participants received their certificates, which finally recognized them as a Climate Justice Ambassador. An interesting day had come to an end. Apart from the experience and newly found knowledge, all new Ambassadors took with them a Certificate, Tree by Tree Book and of course the Plant-for-the-Planet T-shirt they collected at the start of the day. Teachers, Friends, organizers and guests were very impressed by the great performance of the children.

    Hey Dharmendra!
    It's Lisa.

    I did leave the very same comment before but just in case you haven't checked it out it's really great how you are meeting so many different young people of various regions and backgrounds. And it's really inspiring that you share these stories with us! I can see that it's always the same programs that you are meeting these different people with so probably it's really hard to write the reports differently every time. Yet, I do believe that repeating the same contents over and over would not be very productive for you and for the readers as well. It would be very improving and helpful for all if you could just tell us what you felt or any little incident that happened this time and that instead of telling us the same story. You don't have to feel the pressure of writing a long report it can be short and it's perfectly fine.

    I hope that you don't get me wrong and really, I think you are an amazing person who is very motivating to all of us!

    Always inspiring to see students introduced to climate advocacy! Might I suggest a different text color, though? Neon green on a white background can be hard for some people to read through.
