Heal the world…

It is said that Prevention is better than cure. From the environment point of view, this translates into "take action today to create a better world tomorrow". The best way to ensure an improved consciousness among the citizens of tomorrow is to train the children of today. This means that if children are made aware of their collective responsibility towards the environment, they will be quite a force in ensuring that there is a more peaceful and balanced world in the future.

Schoolteachers are the best equipped to train children and realizing this, HOPE (the environment arm of Rotary Club of Thane) has organized a free half-day workshop for teachers from secondary schools of Thane & Dombivli. HOPE has invited schools to depute one or two staff teachers to participate in this workshop, which will address environment and wildlife related issues. The primary objective of the workshop is to guide teachers about the methods of motivating the youth and children of today towards environment awareness.

Teachers can expect to learn about the diverse wildlife forms of India and the problems they face, methods of communicating the messages of conservation, crisis of creatures such as bears, tigers, display/performing animals (circus animals) etc.

The workshop is open to all and interested readers may also attend. It will be held on November 03, 2001 between 3 pm and 7 pm at Sahyog Mandir, 2nd Floor, Ghantali, Thane (West).
