Khoj May - June 2008

As the summer months of May and June arrive most schools close down for the Summer Vacations. This is the best time to get the children involved in meaningful activities and projects.

Energy Conservation is on everybody's mind. So what better than to implement the adage…."charity begins at home!!" All Khoj students are requested to save energy at home (and paper too in the process!) through the Project Akshay Urja. The details are as follows:

Project ‘Akshay Urja’

This Form contains all the 4 Formats…A to D stated below under Instructions to Students

Instructions to Students (to be implemented while implementing the Project at home):

1. Format A has to be filled up by all students
2. Format B is to be used by students for a signature campaign with parents and neighbours. The campaign seeks to elicit support for Energy Conservation
3. Format C – DPEC Form – is to be used for self audit at home
4. Format D is to be used to spread the good word with friends
5. All Formats should be taken out on reused paper/one sided paper/written down on reused paper
6. All Formats…A to D are to be kept in an Energy File
7. The E-File may be periodically presented to the Khoj – Teacher Co-ordinator for assessment/guidance
8. The Project emphasizes the urgent need to save energy as well as paper, on a daily basis through small efforts by each one of us
9. Khoj Teacher Co-ordinators are requested to incorporate the project work as part of their life-skills education in school. Suitable marks may be allotted to students in order to motivate them.

Students may be encouraged to form teams in order to promote team-work and leadership attributes.

Such savings – energy as well as paper – need to be scaled up in order to have a tangible impact on Climate Change issues. Khoj seeks to involve school students across time and space in order to ‘make a difference.’

So lets get cracking. Have a great time doing your bit for Mother Earth!!
