Helping Paryavaran Mitra schools to take the lead we ask schools to commit to handprint action within the school and the community nearby. Students will identify environmental issue in the school and discuss these with their principal and identify the one issue they will take up and address in the next academic year. They will record this commitment and upload the video here . We already have commitments pouring in from schools.
