Climate Campaign by FairGaze Lauded by UN News, Niti Aayog

Summary: The School Champs for Climate Action campaign to spread awareness around climate change and the need to ‘ACT NOW’ launched by FairGaze, a leading school media and an engagement ecosystem for Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) programs for students, in partnership with United Nations Information Centre for India and Bhutan (UNIC) received massive appreciation and was lauded by UN News and NITI Aayog.

New Delhi, 29 August 2022: FairGaze, a leading school media and an engagement ecosystem in partnership with United Nations Information Centre for India and Bhutan (UNIC), recently concluded a pan-India four-month long campaign School Champs for Climate Action to spread awareness around climate change and the need to ‘ACT NOW’. The campaign received huge appreciation among the school community and was lauded by UN News and NITI Aayog for mobilising ground-level action and behavioural change to help meet long-term climate objectives.

With a strong belief that children are the catalysts of change, the campaign aimed to encourage school students to be change makers and contribute to the fulfillment of Sustainable Development Goal 13 (Climate Action) on a national scale.

The campaign encouraged an understanding of the climate crisis and individual actions driven by young students. Along with students, the campaign engaged teachers, parents, educationists, and climate experts in meaningful discussions on climate challenges and solutions. The campaign saw 7,200+ students from 250+ schools from 29 States/ Union Territories across the country register and participate in the campaign.

The leadership and initiatives taken by the students offer us reasons to be optimistic and inspire FairGaze to engage the school community to protect the environment and accelerate the achievement of the SDGs. The campaign exposed students to varied experiences, making them more compassionate and empathetic, in addition to raising awareness and knowledge of the UN-led Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The students received recognition not only on a national level through Niti Aayog but were also acknowledged on a global level with coverage in UN News.

FairGaze consistently contributes to the development of the school community through various initiatives for empowering school students, like Campaigns to generate awareness of UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), dedicated programs/webinars on holistic development delivered by experienced mentors, and special initiatives focused on social mobility and nation building like the development of NCC Training App, launched by the Defence Minister Shri Rajnath Singh. To date, FairGaze engages with more than 3,50,000+ students across 1,300+ schools countrywide.
