Proposal For Eco Exhibition Workshops V3

  1. 1. The

Eco‐Exhibition
is
an
attempt
to
inform
the
visitors
of
Auroville
about
few
 key
areas
where
they
can
make
changes
so
as
to
be
better
citizens
of
the
world.
 i.e:
Energy,
Organic
Food
and
Farming,
Mobility,
Water,
Transportation,
 Wasteland
and
A
forestation.
 The
exhibition
sees
many
children
who
come
to
the
space
in
groups
with
 schools
and
camps.
The
idea
of
having
an
Educator
is
that
there
is
a
person
who
 can
engage
the
children
with
games
and
activities
while
making
them
very
 aware
about
the
issues
mentioned
above
so
that
they
may
make
small
lifestyle
 changes
at
a
young
age.

  2. 2. 









Through
live
and
interactive
workshop

modules,
create
awareness
 amongst
the
audience
(namely
children
visiting
from
schools)
with
the
 main
messages/themes
of
the
Eco‐Exhibition
as
listed
below:

 1.  Energy
 2.  Water
 3.  Waste
 4.  Food
&
Farming
 5.  Mobility
 6.  A
forestation

  3. 3. •  For
each
theme
mentioned
in
the
previous
slide,
the
 Educator
will
engage
the
children
in
a
brief
interactive
 discussion.
Estimated
duration:
20‐25
min
 •  During
the
discussion
the
following
points
will
be
addressed:
 the
problem,
causes,
effects,
how
they
can
help.
 •  A
few
quick
short
games,
demos
and
props
will
follow
to
 further
get
the
message
across
to
the
children
in
a
fun
but
 simple
way.
 •  Live
feedback
can
be
taken
through
a
quick
on‐the‐spot
quiz

  4. 4. •  Do
you
know

what
energy
is
and
why
we
need
it?
(we
use
 energy
for
everything
–
from
cooking
our
food
to
running
a
race
to
 sending
astronauts
into
space!
refer
to
link
for
basic
energy
definitions)
 •  Activity
1:
run
on
the
spot
for
30
seconds.
See
how
much
 energy
we
need
to
do
that.

 •  Everyday
we
waste
small
amounts
of
energy.
Do
you
know
 how?
(leaving
on
lights
and
fans
when
not
in
use,
running
water,
using
 vehicles
when
not
needed)
 •  Activity
2:
lets
see
how
much
energy
it
takes
to
light
a
bulb.
 (They
try
out
the
pedal
power
demo).

Now
you
know
how
much
it
 energy
it
takes
to
just
light
a
bulb!
So
that’s
why
we
need
to
 conserve
it
as
much
as
we
can.

  5. 5. •  Want
to
know
how
you
can
conserve
energy?
(use
LED
and
not
 bulbs
&
CFL,
turn
off
lights
and
appliances
when
not
in
use,
use
public
 transport/walk/cycle.
More
information
on
using
and
saving
energy)
 •  Prop:
show
and
explain
in
simple
terms
why
an
LED
is
better
 than
a
Bulb

 •  Activity
2:
Share
amongst

the
group
a
limited
number
of
 sweets
so
that
not
everyone
gets
one.
Explain
how
the
 sweets
like
energy,
is
something
we
all
want
but
is
limited.
 That’s
why
we
need
to
conserve
it
so
that
everyone
can
 share
it.

  6. 6.   What
do
you
use
water
for?
(show
a
pictorial
chart
‐
drink,
cook,
 water
plants,
bathe,
wash
dishes
etc.)
   Can
you
think
of
ways
in
which
you
waste
water?
(running
 water
while
brushing
teeth,
washing
fruits
and
vegetables
and
when
 playing
water
games
outside
wastes
fresh
water,
leaky
taps).
   Activity
1:
give
them
a
glass
of
murky
water
and
ask
them
if
 it
is
drinkable.
(Explain
why
the
water
got
polluted
–
pesticides,
waste
 etc.
Explain

how
all
the
life
under
water
dies
because
of
this.)

  7. 7.   A
spot
contest
to
list
out
two
or
three
things
bad
that
will
happen
 if
the
earth
runs
out
of
water.
   How
can
we

stop
pollution
and
conserve
water?
(dispose
waste
 appropriately,
not
wash
clothes
in
the
water
bodies,
reuse
water
from
 washing
vegetables
and
fruits
to
water
plants,
not
leave
water
running,
rain
 water
pits,
catch
rain
water
in
a
bucket
and
use
it
to
water
plants,
flush
toilets
 only
when
needed)
   Demo:
model
of
the
taps
used
in
sadhana
forest
(a
steel
tumbler
with
 a
hole.
Water
poured
from
the
top
into
this.
After
washing
the
water
flows
 down
into
a
pit
to
water
a
plant.)
   Activity:
two
teams,
two
buckets
of
water.
Use
as
little
waster
for
as
many
 things
as
possible
   Activity:
mix
oil,
water
and
food
colouring.
Show
how
oil
floats
on
the
top
 and
does
not
mix
with
water.
Explain
this
in
the
context
of
water
pollution

  8. 8.   What
is
waste?
(Demo:
show
the
different
kinds
of
waste
–
paper,
 metal,
plastic,
glass
etc)
   How
is
it
created?
(using
plastics,
littering,
not
disposing
garbage
 correctly)
   Why
is
it
bad?
(Demo
–
a
globe
covered
with
bits
of
garbage
all
across
 the
continents
and
only
little
bit
of
land
left.
Explain
how
waste
will
 destroy
and
fill
up
the
earth.
That’s
why
we
need
to
create
less
of
it)A:
 Activity:
Timeline
of
biodegradation.
Kids
are
asked
to
guess
how
long
 various
materials
take
to
biodegrade
by
placing
materials
along
 corresponding
timelines
on
a
long
rope.
Eg.
Banana
peels,
old
shoes,
 paper
etc
   Can
you
stop
it?
Yes!!

  9. 9.   Reduce

 







Demo:
show
packaged
fruits
in
box/plastic
vs
buying
fruits
fresh
from
the
 market.
Plastic
bottle
vs
metal
bottle.
Plastic
bags
vs
cloth
bags
   Reuse

 








Activity
1:
show
them
how
to
make
items
from
old
boxes,
cans,
bottles,
 clothes.
E.g:
pen
stands,
candle
holders,
cloth
bags
and
dolls
 









Prop:
Junk
art
created
from
the
Litter
Free
Auroville
(LFA)
campaign
 








Activity
2:
show
them
how
vegetable
peels
and
fruit
left
overs
can
be
 used
in
a
compost
pit
and
explain
how
it
gives
nutrients
to
plants.
   Recycle


 








Activity
3:
A
mixed
pile
of
garbage.
Different
labeled
bins
(paper,
plastic,
 metal,
other
garbage).
Ask
them
to
separate
the
garbage
and
explain
 the
use
of
doing
so
 









Prop:
recycled
hand
made
