World Environment Day 2011


KNOWLEDGE PARK (1st to 5th June, 2011)
During the World Environment Day 2011 celebration, a 5 day event called Knowledge Park was organized by Centre for Environment Education Delhi on behalf of the Ministry of Environment & Forest (MoEF), Govt. of India at Dilli Haat, New Delhi from 1st to 5th June 2011. This was established by around 29 different Paryavaran Mitra and NGC (Eco Club) schools from different parts of India putting up their stalls inside the Dilli Haat. Out of the 29 schools, 21 schools from across India and 8 schools from Delhi/NCR participated in the Knowledge Park.

In the Knowledge Park, the schools demonstrated their various small and big initiatives towards protecting of the environment by setting up their stalls and displaying the various eco friendly items, paintings, showcasing the various activities/projects undertaken by them to conserve and protect the environment and disseminated the knowledge to general public by explaining about their activities, initiatives and responsibilities for environment.

A separate stall was put up for Knowledge Dissemination on Environmental action through Paryavaran Mitra, Low Carbon Lifestyle Toolkit and other educational materials. A special exhibition on the best 100 case studies of the National Green Corps (NGC)/Eco Clubs from all over India, developed by CEE, was also put up to spread the actions taken by these schools to others.

A key feature of Knowledge Park was the numerous workshops, games, activities and competitions which were organized for the participating students, teachers and even visitors also. It was exciting for everybody present and also a great learning experience. Students and teachers displayed their creative genius in the various art & craft competitions and their intellect in the environmental quiz. They learnt a great deal from all the workshops that were conducted for them. The winners of the competition for students were awarded by Mr. Jairam Ramesh, Honorable Minister (Environment & Forests) at the World Environment Day function organized at Hotel Ashok, Chanakyapuri on 5th June 2011.

School children also produced some cultural performances like Dance, Skit, and Street Play etc. on environment in order to create awareness and sensitivity among the participants and general public. Also, a Carbon Foot Print (CFP) calculator kiosk was put up in the Knowledge Park where participants and visitors calculated their respective CFPs and pledged to reduce their Foot Print and increase their Hand Print.
