31 Mar 2022

 

U.S. Consulate General Chennai in partnership with The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) initiated an evidence-based awareness & education program that train and mentor schools to collect, record and analyze environmental data related to climate change and marine pollution. The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) and “Microplastics monitoring protocol in surface waters” developed by Deakin University in collaboration with Labter-Crea MN and Globe Italia will be used to generate and understand scientific data related to ocean health. The program also enhances capacity and skillsets in students, educators, and the community to spread awareness and proactively safeguard ocean health. In phase I, 100 schools in coastal cities of Mumbai, Mormugao and Mangalore were trained, in phase II additional 100 schools are being targeted from Chennai, Kochi and Puducherry.
