The Hindu In School, in collaboration with a Mumbai-based NGO, Parisar Asha, is conducting mega eco-Ganpati making online workshops to sensitise families to the environmental contamination caused by the immersion of POP Ganesha idols.
The workshops aim to teach the participants and their family members the technique of making Ganpati idols using fire clay (shadu) or other easily available eco-friendly material and conserve the environment.
The efforts are directed towards creating a ripple effect where the trained participants can further pass the knowledge to their community members.
The workshops will be held on August 14, 15, 21 and 22, and September 4 and 5. Two batches will be conducted on each day at 11 a.m. and 4 p.m..
This initiative is being presented by Union Bank of India, and Hindustan Petroleum Corporation of India is the energy partner.
The best work will be selected at the end of each session and all the winners will be awarded after the event.
