India: Eco Learning Programme (Ecos'kool)
New Delhi, - Panasonic India has initiated "Ecos'kool", a nationwide environment sensitization programme across 100 schools which will encourage and engage young minds to contribute towards a greener tomorrow. The programme, which kick started mid September, will continue till Feb 2011. A pilot programme across 7 schools has successfully concluded and 1600 students had participated in September as part of phase I.
The Ecos'kool concept is one among the many remarkable initiatives being undertaken by Panasonic across the globe as part of its "Go Green"commitment. Through this programme, we hope to create awareness about environmental issues in the present day scenario and ways to curtail the same amongst the youth in a fun filled and engaging manner.
The activity which involves participation of students in the first stage and their parents in the next is conducted by promoters with good communication and presentation skills to generate an interest. Panasonic also presents participating children with badges and certificates to give them a sense of pride in playing a vital role in making the planet greener and safer to live. Also, as part of the programme, the promoter distributes leaves on which the students write their names
To add to the enthusiasm, a graffiti wall is created with the names of the students who have pledged to conserve the environment. The students are also invited to join the "ecos'kool" community on Facebook. "I am very excited about joining the ecos'kool club on Facebook. I really liked this session as it has helped me to be more responsible towards the environment", said a student of class 6.
