Students Taking a Pledge to Save Water

Chandigarh, May 13, 2015 (News Team): Today, on second day of a ‘Water Conservation Fortnight’ being organized in the city by Department of Environment and Yuvsatta, over 500 students of Rose Eco-Club of Govt. Girls Model Sr. Sec. School, Sector 20B, Chandigarh planned to do a water audit at their homes and come out with suggestions of its conservation and judicious use.

Giving information about the initiative Pramod Sharma, Coordinator of Yuvsatta said that in view of the growing fresh water crisis, they’re approaching Schools of the city to motivate their students for ‘Water Audit’ in their respective households, through which children will be sensitized to note down total consumption of water during cooking, gardening, leaking taps, while bathing, brushing teeth’s, shaving, in toilets or washing open spaces and vehicles. And come out with suggestions and ideas to reduce this consumption by at least 20% to 25%.

Addressing the students Ramnik Kaur School Principal said that Water is precious and beyond purchase and a casual approach will certainly bring the dooms day much closer. She motivated students to become ‘Agents of Change’ to restrict use of fresh water to the bare minimum.

A poster making and declamation contest on theme of ‘Save Water and Save Earth’ was also organized on the occasion. In the end incharge of School’s Rose Eco-club Parveen Kumari administered a Pledge to save water to all School students.
