Mumbai: Club Enerji, Tata Power’s nationwide movement, has been constantly working towards spreading the message of being responsible citizens by conservation of energy and natural resources across the country. In line with this commitment, Tata Power’s Club Enerji students from Sri Ma Bal Niketan High School and Sri Ma Vidyalaya in Thane East, organised a mega awareness rally in Thane, on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti to create social awareness around the necessity of energy conservation and to commemorate 148th birth anniversary of father of the nation, Mahatma Gandhi. More than 2,500 students along with the teachers participated in this rally.
The objective of the rally was to sensitise a larger audience about the need for energy conservation, and introduce them to the various ways of conserving energy. In addition to message on energy conservation, the students also shouted slogans for saving natural resources and environment protection. To prepare for the massive rally, the students enthusiastically created banners, placards and posters on themes of energy and natural resources conservation. A skit was performed as part of the celebration, wherein the students reiterated the values and thoughts of father of the nation and urged people to implement them in their lives. Through this well planned and well executed rally, the students successfully educated 10,000 people.
Speaking on this initiative, Anil Sardana, MD and CEO, Tata Power, said, “Tata Power’s Club Enerji is not just a project or a cause, but a movement that will help us shape the minds of our younger generations to be sustainable individuals and enable them to make wise decisions This awareness rally will help the masses to understand the concept of energy conservation and enable them to reflect on day-to-day activities that can make a difference to the environment. On the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, we have strived to honour the Mahatma by inculcating his teachings and values through the students of Club Enerji. We have been successful in reaching out to numerous schools across cities, and such rallies are a step forward in taking our message of conservation to the masses. I take this opportunity to thank the students and management of the schools for making this initiative a grand successes.”
