    TTF Bangalore Centre is organizing "Afternoons with TTF" titled 'It's not what you Throw but what you Save' on January 20, 2011. It is going to be an interactive session with teachers on how they can get their students to see the 3 Rs differently.

    We have all learnt about ‘Reduce, Reuse and Recycle’ and practiced it in our own small ways. Is there more to it? Do students have the big picture for them to make important lifestyle changes? How do we tap into our communities’ traditional knowhow to lead less polluting lives? Finally, what monetary and non-monetary incentives accrue as we throw less and convert more waste into wealth.

    Presenter - Poonam Bir Kasturi 
    Poonam is an Industrial designer, mentor and teacher passionate about simple alternative practices in the cycle of production and consumption. She designs and conducts workshops for people from varied backgrounds – students, designers, NGOs and the government. Her latest project Daily Dump is based on an open source platform, and provides a product-service system to promote home composting. Poonam contributes to the magazine Recycle Now. She published ‘5 Disgustingly Cool Books for Kids’, a set of five books that encourages young children to question some of the choices in their daily lives, discover the connections between these choices and issues of ecology and sustainability.

    ttf can you please start with webcasts (for the free workshops)? Would be so helpful for those who aren't lucky enough to attend some of the workshops? My kids would have found this one particularly great. At the moment they are totally into the 3R's stuff after the EVS class.

    Hi Kamal,

    It is great to know that you are working on 3Rs with your students. Please post a few photographs/videos of your students working on our Facebook Page if possible to encourage other teachers to try it out :)

    We are exploring the possibility of using Information Technology [webcasts, social networks etc] to reach more teachers. We will keep you posted. We really appreciate your interest. Keep in touch :)
