Mobile vans used to create awareness about environment in schools

Two mobile vans will reach out to students of corporation-run schools in Pune and rural areas of the state to create awareness about environment.

The initiative has been taken by the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB), and it’s designed by the Centre of Environmental Education (CEE) who is also implementing the programme. In the pilot run, the vans have toured four schools in the city so far. Savita Bharti, coordinator of the programme in CEE, said that after field trials in Pune, the vans will travel to six other districts in the state. The development concepts are specially for students of standard VI to standard VIII. They can relate to the models and ideas presented by us which will eventually help them understand their textbooks better, Bharti said.

The mobile vans display environmental posters, games, activities and models in an interactive manner. They also have reference publications and computers. This mobile resource is useful for school goers, collegians, teachers, educators, youth groups, panchayats and urban local bodies.
Bharti said students are taught about composting with a composting unit inside the van, wherein students learn how to collect waste and prepare compost. The van also has an instrument for measuring the noise level in the air. Students can also test water quality in their school and water bottles with the help of a water monitoring kit.

The programme is based on the interest level in students and accordingly differs from one school to another. Each team has three people with an educator, a coordinator and a driver, she said.
Bharti said that at present the mobile vans are going to schools and training institutes on request. After a meeting with the district education officer of the PMC, it will reach out to corporation schools.
