Climate EduXchange Initiation Workshop

  
  
  

TERI, in partnership with Dell, launched the Delhi chapter of ’Climate EduXchange’, an IT-enabled climate initiative to improve environmental education in schools, on 10 July 2009, at Father Agnel School, New Delhi. This initiation in Delhi is the sixth in the series of six such events planned for different project sites. On this occasion, nearly 170 students and 50 teachers from 53 schools across Delhi were introduced to the programme.

 

The workshop was organized with the objective of orienting the teachers and students from the partner schools to the nature and mandate of the project.

 

On this occasion, Ranjana Saikia, Associate Director Youth Education and Action, TERI, welcomed everyone and stressed on the importance and topicality of the project. Dell was represented by Adil Katrak, Site Director, Delhi, who shared with the students the vision of Michael Dell, the founder of Dell Inc., of bringing a positive change through the power of information technology. Father J Carvalhi, principal of the host school, encouraged the students to take small steps in their daily lives to conserve the environment so that a more sustainable planet is bequeathed to the future generations.

 

Ranjeeta Buti, Fellow, EEA, facilitated an interactive discussion on the project and on its main theme. Climate EduXchange is being implemented in select schools in Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune, Mohali, and Delhi. The programme aims to develop a generation of young people across the country prepared to network and learn.
