Members of the UPES Chapter volunteered at the Second Annual Dehradun Tree Festival in aid of Green Doon, an NGO working for environmental causes. More than 1,000 children from local schools attended the festival.
The chapter’s environmental section, the “Theme Based Plantation Team,” had a stall at the festival and educated children about biodiesel. The team’s vision is to protect and improve the natural environment for present and future generations, based on sustainable development.
Other activities of the day included drama, poster making, free speech, fancy dress, and poem and essay competitions, all based on an environmental theme.
