Science Express this year’s theme to be Climate Change
Now the government has taken up the initiative to aware people about the changing climate and related woes. To address the issues, now India will see a Climate Change Express chugging across the country to sensitise people about the subject.
The first meeting of the Science Express Climate Change Special (SECCS) which took place on Wednesday decided that the train will be flagged off to discuss the issue with people using signs and slogans.
The meeting, which was chaired by Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar and Health Minister Dr Harshvardhan, said that the train will focus on climate change themes.
According to Javadekar, “This year, the Science Express—an exhibition mounted on a train—will focus on the theme of climate change. It will be the Climate Change Express.”
Science Express is set to be a joint initiative of three ministries- Environment, Railways and Science and Technology. This year, the train’s theme will be Climate Change unlike last year when it was biodiversity.
Notably, countries across the globe are expected to come together in Paris in December to strike a new climate change pact, too.
