ENVIRONMENT 2.0 GEN NEXT

Project Mumbai in partnership with the government of Maharashtra, Department of Environment and climate change, brought together a gathering of influencers across the spectrum who spent quality time to present a result oriented, time bound environment action plan for Mumbai, the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) and Maharashtra.

National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI) and PwC were the knowledge partners for this historic decisive gathering.

The uniqueness of this gathering was that in Mumbai and Maharashtra’s Gen next, students between 14 to 21 were invited to help shape this policy which would help to understand how we should be dealing with our environment – land, water an air.

This was done through a hugely interactive ‘Ideas for action’ essay contest across languages and was judged by an eminent set of credible names

Project Green School

Project Green School, an initiative by Project Mumbai aims to engage school administrators, staff, parents & most importantly students to engage in environmental activities like growing their own food in organic garden & planting trees in their school campus.

We have also taken on the task to beautify the walls of the schools so that the students spend their time at a safe, energizing & attractive learning environment.

With the help of the BMC Education department, we have started activities in 2 BMC schools namely MPS LK Waghji Cambridge Matunga & Nadkarni Park Marathi School, Wadala.

The Matunga school has been adorned with a wall painting of Buckingham Palace depicting traditional ceremony of Change of Guard along with planting of native Indian trees in their school ground.

We spoke to the students, teachers & parents about the important role trees play to provide oxygen to the environment & make the air quality better.

We have revived the oldest form of indigenous art on the walls of Nadkarni Park Marathi School by creating Warli wall artwork. The painting is the most ancient form of art talking about the tribal way of life through folklores & geometric figures made from lines, dots, triangles & circles. The students have developed a keen interest in art & have developed a curiosity in getting to know the origins of the art.
An organic nutri-garden has been established in both the schools, by far the best learning experience for students outside the classroom.

Children have, very enthusiastically, helped to set up the garden by setting up the garden beds, adding soil, planting seeds & watering them. This will motivate them to protect the environment as they grow older.


We are grateful to High Commission of Canada in India for supporting us in this endeavour.
