Workshop On The Environment Of The CMS To Educate Teachers About Global Warming
To raise awareness of environmental issues, CMS Vatavaran, an organization based in New Delhi nonprofit, organized a one day workshop for teachers of environmental science and teachers of the city on Friday. The day of the workshop presentations, various activities for teachers and exchange of experiences.
Rosa de Lima, senior consultant for CMS and a trainer at the workshop discussed how climate change is a serious problem. “Why India, climate change is seen in all countries. Australia has recently experienced the worst floods in 100 years. Zimbabwe to droughts and rains cause floods in Bangladesh face terrible,” he said.
She said that it will not be any different for the city and Ahmedabad may soon become a desert if its citizens don’t’ bother about water conservation.
“Building water reservoirs and economic utilisation of water will help in having a better future,” Rosalind, a wildlife biologist researcher for the last 11 years, said.
Rosalind said that we are over exploiting natural resources. “We are overusing the earth’s resources. Is this the way we want to continue?” she questioned, leaving around 25 teachers and lecturers, who attended the session pondering over the subject.
Later, speaking to DNA, Rosalind said that such workshops are important to sensitise teachers and make them aware about environmental issues. “If teachers are made aware, they will teach the same to school children, who are the future of India. So, the best way to have a better future is to teach the future of India (children), through teachers,” she said.
“Through this workshop, we are making attempts to clear all the mysteries and complexities about climate change so that teachers understand them in a better way and explain the same to their students,” the trainer said.
She said that climate change has suddenly become a big and we need to realise that it is no more an environmental problem, but an economical one.
“Unseasonal rains, floods, all these affect agriculture, communities and our society at large. Science and technology should be used innovatively to reduce global warming and to create awareness about such issues,” the CMS consultant said.
I’m talking about the water situation in Ahmedabad, Rosalind, said the case for water conservation and water harvesting facilities to help improve the groundwater of the city. During the session, teachers were asked to submit some things in new ways.
