Environmental service projects and initiatives have always been a very important part of the Rotaract Club of Kandy’s project plan. Taking it a step further, we executed the project ‘Eco Warriors’, an online awareness webinar session on leading an eco-friendly life, tips for being eco-friendly at all times possible, and discussing sustainable ways to live a life that is less harmful to the environment.
The Eco Warriors webinar was hosted on an online platform on the 11th of September, 2022. The webinar was aimed at creating awareness among the public about environmental issues in general and how they can contribute towards making a change in their lives. This session resulted in an audience of over 70 participants who were able to interact with the guest speakers Mr. K. Sugirthan and Ms. S.S. Christina, the founders of Eco Pens. The audience was able to gain knowledge about topics related to environmental solutions for their everyday lives from the experts.
The guests spoke about different ways in which we can make a difference by adopting eco-friendly habits like using reusable bags instead of disposable ones; taking a shower instead of using bottled water; cutting down on electricity consumption by switching off lights and other appliances when not needed; using solar power panels instead of electric ones and so on which are all very important steps towards reducing our carbon.
The session was highly interactive where the participants were able to raise their questions and get their doubts clarified easily.
We are extremely glad that this initiative received an overwhelming response from participants who appreciated our efforts towards raising awareness about environmental issues among people, especially those working in various sectors of society including students, teachers, professionals, etc.
