On, 21st January 2020, altogether 109 students from 11 schools attended the academy in Lions Public School, Melaghat, Uttarakhand.

 

Modules-

 

  Welcome, Presentation and Q&A -


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 and Harshdev Punera.  The presentation covered: Introduction of Plant-for-the-Planet, sources of CO2,greenhouse effect, global warming, photosynthesis, climate change, climate crisis, Plant-for-the-Planet and global justice. These topics were explained in a very simple language and easy way. After the presentation, children had the opportunity to clear their doubts through an interactive and question and answer session.


 Break and World Game-


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 laid out on the floor as symbols of the world’s population, wealth and CO2 emissions respectively.  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. Eventually, the CO2 emissions and wealth were distributed fairly - everyone has equal rights


 Public-speaking training


Then the children 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 Harshdev Punera.

 

Lunch break and Film-


 The children 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 Plant trees in Mexico as children during the presentation session were very curious to know more about the plant-for-the-planet and how we plant trees all over the world.


 Planting party


 Rested, and feeling energized, the children relocated to the schoolyard to plant their own trees! Before the planting commenced, the children listened intently to the advice of the Eco club in charge Mr. Anand Kumar. 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 14 trees (Azadirachta indica, Cassia fistula, Magnifera Indica, Indian Gooseberry, Psidium guajava) in just 50 minutes with the assistance of the Eco Club Members and YCSG members.

 

 School groups and the World Café


After a short break it was back to the program. The children started the "World Café" module. The children 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, children were asked to present their thoughts and future plans in front of other students and teachers.

 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. 


 Evening Presentation


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

 

Graduation


After a long, fruitful, and enjoyable day, all 109 participants received their certificates from Miss Priyanka Chand and Mrs. Meena Samant, which 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 copy of Tree-by-Tree, and of course the Plant-for-the-Planet T-shirt they collected at the start of the day.

    Hello Dharmendra

    Looks like you've participated in such a great program!
    Especially for the young children, experiences like this is really effective to them. Some of the concepts introduced in the program might have not been familiar to them, and those concepts will help them to design their future lives.

    Thank you for sharing your great experience!

    Hey Dharmendra!
    It's Lisa your mentor.

    Seems like you have had an event here!
    Thanks for sharing the story in detail with lots of photos.
    I think I would have enjoyed all these different sessions of the event myself!
    I truly believe that youth engagement and participation can bring real changes in the world and so creating a network for these young social change makers is our job to do.
    It's amazing how you were part of it:)

    Keep up the work and looking forward to your next report!
