The interactive session with Ms. Deviya began with an ice-breaking activity where each attendee had to introduce themselves by associating themselves with a vegetable and mentioning the quality of the vegetable that makes us relatable to it. Then a short activity was organized where attendees identified 6 logos and a collection of leaves.

According to Ms Deviya, the connection of students with nature has weakened over time as the place where they grow up is far away from farms where vegetables and fruits grow. Such identification activities can be conducted with the students with samples from the field to establish the bond between them and nature. This will sensitize them to the needs of the environment and will help in creating awareness in the coming generation.

Instilling the awareness that – what’s not good for us is not good for the environment will help the children to make choices that keep the environment safe.
