Toxics Link under the
“Microsoft Create to Inspire School
Program” conducted a Showcase Workshop in November in two cities: Noida
and Ghaziabad. This program aims at ‘Sustainable living and Consumption’ in our
daily lives. The implementation model comprises of a set of 14 toolkits (for
students) on the themes of Biodiversity, E-waste, Urban Transportation, Energy
and Water, with each having a set of exercises to be conducted at home, school
and out of school. Most toolkits are ‘step outside the classroom’
exercises that engage students practically and creatively.
particularly focused at sharing of best practices, initiate peer learning and
to discuss queries and challenges faced by schools. They witnessed teachers’
presentations on the implementation of the program in their schools, and
students’ performances like skits, street plays on the themes of Biodiversity,
Electricity Conservation and Waste Management. The teachers were also
involved in the workshop with energizing games on sustainable living and the
idea of ‘peer learning’ being organized. The two workshops concluded
successfully with each one going back with more ideas and enthusiasm to
complete the remaining toolkits.
