In a move to raise the awareness and sensitising the school students about environment, the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) in partnership with Centre for Environment Education (CEE) today organised a plantation drive for the school students at the Children’s Museum at Siri Fort Garden.
Along with the plantation drive the students were also given insights on the various aspects of ASI. Mr Praveen Shrivastava, director general, ASI was the chief guest at the programme.
A workshop on bird nest making was also organised with the support of Eco Roots Foundation (ERF). ERF works on socio-environmental issues by creating awareness through innovative projects with educational institutions.
Over 200 students from about 15 schools gathered and planted trees as a symbol of their support for revival of the environment.
The bird house workshop was the main attraction of the celebration where children created bird house from bamboo sticks.
