The Ministry of Environment together with Ashoka Trust for Research in Ecology and the Environment (ATREE) organised an inaugural session to the 3rd Vacation Programme on Environment Resources, in the capital on Monday.

“Our focus is to expose students to the key environmental concerns, the social and organisational aspects of the issues relating our environment,” said Manoj Dabas, Regional Manager, ATREE.

This 10-day program will be an eye opener for school students to learn more about these basic aspects of the environment. The seminar will focus on visits to thermal power plants to see how power is generated, the Delhi Jal Board to understand the importance of water and to Jim Corbett park to make students aware about wild life.

Indoor sessions will deal with the recycling of waste material etc and will enable the students become responsible citizens. The seminar begins on the March 21 for the 80 school students who have been selected.
