India, Kerala: Plastic Free Week

This activity is organised by the Sweden Alumni Network India Kerala Chapter and is open to all.

Welcome to join Plastic Free Week 2021 in India, Kerala!

We plan to conduct activities aimed at increasing awareness about the harm caused by plastic, for a month from 2nd October to 2nd November. October 2nd is the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of our Nation, who was a great environmentalist. So, we would like to kick off the program with a seminar on the plastic penance on that day.

The members of our Chapter are spread over the different districts in the State of Kerala. So, we plan to conduct our activities at six different places in Kerala. The centres are:

1. Kozhikode
2. Sulthan Bathery
3. Pulppally
4. Nilambur
5. Kannur
6. Kumbala

Each Centre will be organizing different programs. They include seminars, quizzes, essay competitions and painting competitions. Plogging will be a common activity at all centres. We also plan an international seminar in which alumni from five countries will present briefly how plastic menace is tackled in their countries.
