Mumbai, February 12, 2019: Club Enerji, a resource and energy conservation programme by Tata Power, India’s largest integrated power utility, organised two Mega Awareness Rallies in Mumbai recently with participation of over 600 students from CES Michael School, Kurla, along with 15 other schools. Based on the theme of energy and environment conservation, students at the rally urged the masses to reduce excessive use of carcinogenic plastic at large and adopt environment-friendly substitutes.
Spread over a period of two days, the rally on the first day started from the premises of CES Michael School extending to a 1km radius. This rally witnessed a participation of over 600 students and sensitised over 1500 people on the importance of saying no to plastic and saving the ecosystem. Over 100 students from Pawar Public School will also be organising a rally to sensitise shopkeepers, hawkers and audiences in the school premises to avoid the use of plastic products.
Shalini Singh, Chief – Corporate Communications & Sustainability, Tata Power, said, “As an environmentally responsible organisation, we have been passionate about building a sustainable future by educating the young minds of tomorrow to be the advocates of energy and resource conservation. Through such rallies, we’ve championed the cause of creating a positive impact on the community at large and will continue to promote a safer, cleaner and healthier environment.”
“The association that we have with Tata Power makes us extremely happy because it has taught our students Jiyo Power Se. Our students have learnt how to save units, not only in school, but also outside of it. Today, our school has a solar panel and the bill has come down significantly. Through the years, Tata Power continues to not only enlighten and encourage, but also empower our students, parents and teachers,” said Ms. Jean Gomes, Principal, CES Michael School.
Commenting on her experience, Sayyeda Aiman, a student of CES Michael School said, “My experience has been enriching. I have realised that people do not proactively take steps towards conserving the environment because of lack of awareness. Through our rally today, we tried to raise awareness amongst people, and we hope they save energy and conserve the environment because it is important to not just us humans, but also the world at large.”
Club Enerji, through its various modules has not only become a holistic movement to save energy and natural resources, but also transform children all around the country into responsible citizens and proactive leaders of the future.
