Tata Steel under its flagship Green School Project reached out to more than 7,300 students and teachers in the past eight months, spreading awareness about climate change and the importance of sustainable development model.
Climate education and its awareness is a critical instrument in the global strategy to address the environmental impacts of climate change.
To address the challenges posed by the pandemic in reaching out to the school community, Tata Steel leveraged the digital platforms like websites, mobile applications, and social media to continue this outreach program and connect with the green crusaders.
The online initiatives involved virtual seminars and hands-on training workshops, digital competitions, self-learning series in the form of audio-video learning capsules, and more.
The Green School Project, a joint initiative of Tata Steel and TERI, involves the school fraternity to bring about a change using climate literacy as an effective tool. It promotes environmental stewardship to enhance critical and interdisciplinary thinking through formal and informal modes of teaching.
