Tata Power's nationwide energy conservation programme, Club Enerji, has constantly endeavored to bring about an active change in attitude amongst citizens towards curbing energy-wastage through active measures and preserving Mother Earth. Continuing with the momentum, DAV School through its Mini Club hosted a Mega Rally in association with Tata Power Club Enerji and Smt. Sulochanadevi Singhania School, Lok Puram Public School, Shri Harkrishan English High School and St. John The Baptist High School in Thane.
More than 250 students across these 5 schools joined hands and participated in the Mega Rally in order to sensitise citizens on the need for resource conservation, optimum utilisation of natural wealth and the benefits of conserving environmental capital, resources and manpower. The rally kicked off from Tulsi Dham society with school students enthusiastically chanting slogans "Bring change drastic, cut plastic" and "One solution, reduce pollution", carrying handmade posters and banners and carrying placards with paintings depicting different ways of conserving resources. The students sensitised over 2000 people, distributing handmade badges as a water conservation souvenir. Furthermore, students interacted with pedestrians and spoke enthusiastically about the three R's-Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, reminding them that Mumbai is “Our City, Our Duty".
The highlight of the event was the enthusiastic ‘Lezim Dance’ which is a form of folk dance of Maharashtra, performed by the students and the drum bands. This was followed by a musical skit on Water Conservation and a unique dance performance on water crisis. The Tata Power Club Enerji Educators addressed the students and encouraged them to keep their passion and unwavering commitment for the environment alive.
Speaking on this initiative, Mr. Anil Sardana, Managing Director and CEO- Tata Power, commented, “Club Enerji provides a platform for children to share and expand their understanding and aims to bring about a chain-reaction towards reducing wastage of energy and natural resources. Tata Power understands that children at a young age need to be taught about resource conservation for a greener tomorrow which has been achieved through Club Enerji’s efforts. We are extremely proud that our young torch bearers are full of fresh enthusiasm and vigour which only inspires us further. We appreciate the active participation from the students, teachers and the principal for extending their support to this initiative."
The day kicked off with prayers, chanting of Gayatri Mantra and Ganesh Vandana dance by students. DAV School principal addressed the students during her welcome speech.
