The SPE Bangalore young professionals (YPs) group conducted its first activity last June on the occasion of World Environment Day. A poster competition and an environmental workshop were organized as part of the event, which drew more than 50 YP participants from the Bangalore area. The poster competition received good response, with more than 20 posters submitted. During the environmental workshop, Nick West, Shell Technology India, Bangalore, gave an interesting talk about health, safety, security, and environmental practices, which can reduce fuel and energy waste in day-to-day life. He discussed the efforts of Al Gore to elevate awareness of the climate-change issue and seek measures to reduce global warming.
The YP group plans to organize a quiz competition and workshop for school children to create awareness about the petroleum industry. For more information about the Bangalore Section and its activities, please visit http://bangalore.spe.org.
