This is Abhishek Chauhan, student of Computer Science. I hail from Noida.
When Delhi(NCR) was busy in heated discussions over smog and its effect on the health of people, we planned to form an environment club to create awareness. We presented our proposal to Vinnie Mathur ma'am. She after a short discussion gave us a go ahead, and finally this Eco Club was formed.
Awareness To Protect Environment Society (A.P.E.S)Of Galgotias, is a move in the direction to create awareness among masses regarding the environment.
Our slogan is Green We Go!
We plan to make the activities of this club comprehensive and robust through various campaigns.
The more we are attached to the environment, the more affectionate we will be. We would bring the subject of environment closer to the heart of Galgotians through -
- Organizing seminars and popular talks on environment.
- Organizing Quizzes.
- By covering some inspirational stories of Galgotians of what little step they took for the environment. It will in turn surely motivate the rest.
- Campaign to stop the usage of plastic carry bags ,burning organic material ,and burning of crackers.
- Organizing rallies and marches.
- Attracting attention to various other environment protection issues.
- Making people contemplate about future of some crucial agreements/projects like –‘Paris Climate Agreement’ ,’Ken –Betwa Link Project’ etc.
Recently, Adidas and Parley manufactured shoes from the recycled ocean plastic and a Bangalore based start-up converted discarded plastic bottles into plastic strings.
We anticipate, that people around us appreciate these stuffs as we will let people know about this through Social Media, Photography Events etc.
We also plan to Collaborate with some NGO’s of Delhi.
In the society, we plan to discuss our own daily habits so as to find alternatives to reduce harm to environment and to discuss what our old age habits were to conserve the environment.
This is what we wish to do through this environmental society.
