GREEN GANESHA WORKSHOP AT ST. DOMINIC SAVIO HIGH SCHOOL-ANDHERI
On Thursday, 25th August 2011, Greenline organized a ‘Green Ganesha workshop, conducted by the Young Environmentalists Programme Trust.
They programme was hosed by St. Dominic Savio High School and a total of 230 students participated in it. The participating schools were: St. Dominic Savio, Andheri; Holy Family, Andheri and Don Bosco Borivili.
The purpose of the sessions was to educate children about the ways of celebrating festivals like Ganesh Chaturti in an eco-friendly manner. The idea behind the workshop is that by using clay, vegetable based decorations and home immersions, the festival can be enjoyed in the traditional manner without damaging the environment.
The session included a practical exercise in making Ganesh idols of clay, as well as inputs on safe immersions.
We would like to thank Fr. Savio Silveira from the Don Bosco Development Society and his team for making it possible to have this workshop with the help and assistance of Young Environmentalists Programme Trust.
