event organized at Binodini Girls' High School, Kolkata on 29th September 2015.
This was a part of the series of programmes that are jointly being organized by
Toxics Link, Microsoft and GIZ under the banner “Create to Inspire School
Program”. Skits, dance-drama, recitation and songs on various environmental
issues such as energy conservation, water, tree, waste management, etc. were
performed by the students during the event. The event was concluded by
requesting teachers and students to continue all their efforts in schools and
in their daily lives to save the environment.
Here it may be noted that
Microsoft “Create to Inspire” is an innovative school programme designed to
build the capacity of teachers and students on sustainable lifestyle and
environment. Through this programme schools work closely with their
neighbouring communities to address concerns relating to waste management,
energy, water conservation, etc. In Kolkata the programme was launched in
February this year in 100 schools with support from Office of the District
Inspector (DI) – Secondary Education, Kolkata (under Department of Education,
Government of West Bengal).
