To begin with, she presented a presentation to the students to acquaint them with the concept of environment and the related concepts like climate change, global warming, carbon footprint. Through her presentation, she made the students aware that nature has enough for man’s needs but not enough for man’s greed. She explained them that how human activities through their ways of life, demeanours, conventions and establishments are to a great extent in charge of the present environmental scenario. She elaborated at length the meaning, causes and effects of the multiple environmental hazards. The presentation was followed by experiments through which she practically demonstrated these concepts to the students.
