“Sustainability is treating ourselves and our environment in such a way as if we are to live on this earth forever.”
The students of Grade VIII got a first-hand experience of sustainable living when they visited Teri Retreat in Gwal Pahari on Faridabad-Gurgaon Road. Teri’s Research and Development Centre is spread across 100 acres of land which was in a barren state till 1985. The campus has now transformed into a lush green retreat using energy efficient innovative solutions. The use of underground cellars which are cooler in summers and warmer in winters instead of air conditioners and extensive use of solar energy make it a model of sustainable lifestyle which would be a way of life in future. Overall, it was a refreshing break for the children.
