‘Digital School’ inks pact with Earth Day Network

City-based ‘Digital School’, the promoter of School Radio, signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Earth Day Network India to be an outreach partner.

As part of this, Digital School will be creating mass sensitization about Earth Day Network’s ‘Say No To Plastic Bags’ and ‘Low Carbon Life Styles’ campaigns among youth by reaching out to students and to the general public in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.

Earth Day Network is an international, environmental NGO that grew out of the first Earth Day (April 22, 1970), and currently engages with over 50,000 partners in some 196 countries to work for a greener and cleaner environment.

Its ‘Say No To Plastic Bags’ campaign aims to reduce the number of plastic bags used in India and to suggest alternatives to these such as paper and cloth bags. Its ‘Low Carbon Lifestyles’ campaign aims to make people aware of the need to lead low carbon lifestyle by the judicious use of energy and by opting for renewable energies.

During the campaigns, the students would be invited to participate in interesting activities that would help build awareness about the importance of saying no to plastic bags and to expanding awareness about low carbon lifestyles.

The first major event in the campaign will be a competition that culminates on National Energy Conservation Day (December 14, 2016) when three best academic institutions will be awarded as winners.
