a) Eco-club diaries of the National Green Corps Programme in West Bengal compiled to publish the ‘Best Eco-club Diaries’


The Ministry of Environment and Forests, Government of India had launched a 'National Green Corps' (NGC) scheme in schools all over the country to spread environmental awareness and carry out action based programmes for the protection and improvement of the environment. The NGC programme aims to provide opportunities for children to understand the environment and environmental problems, through school eco-clubs. The West Bengal Pollution Control Board (WBPCB) is the State Nodal Agency for the implementation of this programme in our state. As tabulated below, under the NGC programme, at present there are 2850 schools covering 19 districts of West Bengal (including Kolkata).


Every eco-club of the NGC schools submits an Eco-Club Diary at the end of the year. An Eco-Club Diary is the annual report of an eco-club. The Eco-Club Diary contains the analytical description of the activities during the year in question. The WBPCB, on assessing the year-round performance of the eco-clubs, publishes a compiled report titled "Best Eco-club diaries" annually. In addition, all the original Eco-Club Diaries are stored by the WBPCB in its Library for public reference and use. The WBPCB publication titled "Best Eco-club diaries" is meant to encourage all the eco-club members to help promote the idea of environmental protection.
