If I change the way I throw - will it make any difference? was the question that was inscribed in the minds of the students after their trip to Swacchta Park, on 11th February 2020. As a part of their inquiry into sustainability for their PYP Exhibition, the students had the opportunity to see, interact, and learn about the methods being implemented in the local sector in Noida to deal with waste management. Interestingly, instead of being funded by the local government, this initiative is fully self-driven, self-sustaining by the residents of Sector 47, and has benefitted all individuals, including waste collectors, residents, and the city authorities. Students learned that the fundamental reason for this initiative’s inception was to reduce the grave impact of bad waste management on the environment. They learned that waste at landfills emits methane, which is more potent than carbon dioxide. This creates a ripple effect leading to harmful consequences like ozone depletion and pollution. However, if the same waste is being utilized, then the impact it has on the environment is cut down significantly. Simultaneously, the students also were able to witness the practice of Miyawaki- a Japanese technique to generate a 100-year-old forest in only 10 years, adopted by the residents with an aim to create an urban dense forest on a wasteland to support local biodiversity. By the end of the visit, students were highly motivated to become more responsible citizens and promised to do their bit in practicing useful waste management.
