Soldiers of the Earth: TITLI is supporting TERI to implement the Soldiers of the Earth Program in Dehradun.
Soldiers of the Earth: The Soldiers of the Earth programme is a global environmental education programme. It is a joint initiative of TERI (The Energy and Resources Institute, www.terin.org) and ONGC (Oil & Natural Gas Corporation, www.ongcindia.com) Ltd. The programme is designed to spread awareness about the environment among schoolchildren. It is an interactive programme that involves children in conservation activities. The tools used will include books, workshops, and learning modules. The ultimate aim is to make the children conscientious and responsible individuals who are aware of the impact of their actions on the planet. These young people will embrace conservation not as a slogan, but as a way of life.
As part of this program, workshops with school children have been conducted.
On Earth Day, 22 April 2010, as part of the SOE program, TITLI conducted the One Lakh Cloth Bag Campaign, to create awareness about the need to reduce the use of plastic bags.
