Solar 30 – Capacity Building Workshop for Himachal Pradesh Teachers at AAETI

Climate change is the most formidable threat that the world is facing today.
Emissions from burning of fossil fuels for energy is one of the major contributors to this threat. Use of renewable sources of energy – such as solar and wind – is being seen as a key initiative towards replacing fossil fuels and
mitigating the impacts of a changing climate.

Centre for Science and Environment’s Green Schools Programme (GSP) has
been working with school teachers and educators from across the country to
build understanding and knowledge about climate change, its impacts and
linkages to some of the major environmental concerns that we face today,
the solutions and adaptive measures that we could initiate, and how
the subject could be taught effectively in the classroom.

Solar 30 is one of the key new initiatives of GSP in this direction, under which the programme – with the support of HIMCOSTE – is aiming to work
exclusively with some selected schools in Himachal Pradesh. This is the second in a series of workshops (the first was held in Solan) designed for these schools (christened Super 30 as a group), which will continue the discussions and knowledge building around renewable energy.

The workshop will focus on issues ranging from the use of solar energy in daily life and challenges in installation, to best practices from schools — through an assortment of lectures and presentations, videos and activities. All in the sylvan surroundings of CSE’s training facility in the foothills of the Aravallis.

The venue
CSE’s state-of-the-art residential training facility, Anil Agarwal Environment
Training Institute (AAETI), located a three-hour road trip away from Delhi in Nimli, at the foothills of the Aravallis, near Alwar in Rajasthan.
