‘Mindless mining: The Tragedy of Kudremukh’, an advocacy film by Shekar Dattatri, was screened for students to envision the power of collective will and the possibilities of how people from different walks of life could come together to protect natural heritage. This was followed by an audiovisual on daily conservation practices like composting, recycling, up-cycling.
Certificates were awarded to all participating students. Framed wildlife posters with a conservation message and a set of documentary films by Shekar Dattatri were presented to the schools for their future awareness programs. It was apparent that ‘The Planet and You’ program had left an indelible mark among students and their teachers.
