WADALA, FEBRUARY 21, 2011: On February 17, 2011, the Green Line team headed by Fr. Savio Silveira paid a visit to St. Joseph’s High School, Wadala, to view the progress of the Green Schools’ campaign, and also to conduct a short program for the leaders of the school. The primary goal of this entire exercise was to make our school as eco-friendly as possible.
The interactive sessions of the program provided the participants an opportunity to come out with creative and innovative ideas and techniques to promote an eco-friendly environment in our school and neighborhood. Innovative and tested techniques such as rainwater harvesting, cultivating terrace gardens, designing wider and larger windows that would reduce the usage of electricity, and the use of solar panels came up for discussion. We were encouraged to take up the challenge to implement these methods and spread this awareness to save our planet from further destruction.
An efficacious power-point presentation on the carbon footprints that shorten our lives was an eye-opener and a reminder to us that a concerted effort to bring about a change in our lifestyle is the need of the hour to preserve the environment from further destruction. And we ought to be the leaders of this change.
