Tata Power's Club Enerji organises awareness rally on natural resources conservation in Pune
Pune: Club Enerji, Tata Power's school outreach programme, has been extremely successful in sensitising children at the school level and the public on the ethos and importance of energy conservation. In line with this commitment, Tata Power’s Club Enerji students from Blue Heaven’s English Medium School, organised an awareness rally in Pune today to create social awareness around the importance of conserving natural resources.
The objective of the awareness rally was to educate the residents of Pune about the need for natural resources conservation and the various ways to conserve it. About 120 students and school staff participated in the awareness rally, shouting slogans on the sustainable use of natural resources, thereby sensitising close to 1,000 people. The rally was well received and passed through the busy streets of Kondwa road, from Katraj to Mauli Nagar. Before the rally, students came together to prepare banners, placards and posters which depicted various ways of conserving energy and natural resources.
