Environment Club:

Environment club at DPSG Sushant Lok aims to raise awareness among students so that they understand environmental issues, have a sense of responsibility for the environment, develop a personal commitment to protect and preserve the environment and to educate and cultivate an appreciation and interest in the environment. This club is a voluntary group comprising of students and teachers which promotes participation of students in learning about and working towards the conservation and sustainability of their environment. Every year students celebrate Earth Week by taking out rally on roads in Sushant Lok and creating awareness about the seriousness of the problems associated with wastes specially e-Waste. The residents and all the students, teachers, school staff collectively sign a pledge on this earth day. The students of DPSG Sushant Lok join their hands together in the awareness rally organised by ‘I am gurgaon’ to ask people to save ARAVALLIS by planting more and more trees and SAY NO to unwanted construction near Aravallis, Gurgaon.The Club members are trained to become youth leaders who connect through formal efforts with other schools and external organisations to create awareness about the environmental related issues threatening the cleanliness of water bodies, existence of biodiversity and earth’s natural resources by converting waste that would usually be disposed of in landfill and incineration facilities and is diverted for recycling. As a member of the Club, the environmental ambassadors lead the environmental activities and events in school, identify and implement values-based environmental programmes within their school and community, form part of the network to share and communicate their environmental activities and ideas. We believe that engaging and participation of students in environmental workshops, scientific inquiry projects, geographical investigations, learning journeys, school and community outreach as well partnerships with external organisations in environmental conservation and protection will help students to lead, identify and solve environmental problems.
