Greener-Future

High school students from five schools across India made presentations on green initiatives that can be implemented in their schools as part of a final round of the ‘Green I’ competition recently. The theme was ‘Green cities are gateways to a sustainable future’.

AMM Matriculation Higher Secondary School and Vidya Mandir Senior Secondary School, Mylapore, were among the finalists from Chennai. The other finalists were St Mary’s High School (Mumbai), The Millennium School (Mohali) and Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan’s R K Sarda Vidya Mandir (Raipur).

The contestants from these schools came up with various green initiatives on their own, with a little guidance from their teachers. 

The students came up with ideas like energy conservation methods and water management. The girls from Vidya Mandir School in Mylapore put forth ideas on sustainable development. “It was wholesome work by the students,” said Jayalakshmi, their physics teacher. The students worked for the past one month to come up with these ideas.

The winning school will get to showcase its ideas for the present and future generations of the school.
