Title: TERI sensitizes India’s pupils about energy and climate protection
Due to rising energy consumption, TERI launched the project BEACON (Building Energy Awareness on Conservation) in 100 schools in ten regions of India for a total of 3000 pupils. The project focuses on sensitizing the children to saving energy and uses various activities and programs such as energy clubs, interviews, brochures and questionnaires. The project demonstrates how the use of fossil fuels pollutes the environment and contributes to global warming.
