TCSRD join hands with NABARD to Create Climate Change Awareness
Create Climate Change Awareness – The Tata Chemicals Society for Rural Development (TCSRD), in collaboration with NABARD, recently educated Mithapur residents about climate change and biodiversity through a climate change awareness programme. It also hosted a Biodiversity and Eco fair, which drew a total of 44 teams, comprising 48 firm personnel, 114 school kids, and 84 students from the Technical Training Institute (TTI).
The climate change education programme was split into two parts. The first is an online and offline knowledge sharing session for rural students. Second, the Biodiversity and Eco fair, which features models depicting various aspects of climate change and the causes that contribute to it.
Climate change is predicted to exacerbate the threat to biodiversity, yet healthy ecosystems can also assist mitigate the effects of climate change. These workshops, co-hosted by TCSRD and NABARD, not only leverage the channel of knowledge sharing, but also encourage climate-resilient practices. Our actions are aimed at preserving and strengthening the native flora and fauna. Mr. Nanda, Chief of HR & CSR at Tata Chemicals Ltd, stated, “It is our constant effort to work towards developing the biological hotspot, restoring ecological balance, and providing an undisturbed habitat for wildlife and migrating birds.”

The event also included a scholarship distribution ceremony for students, in addition to the workshops. A total of 74 students received the affirmative action scholarship, which assists students in grades nine through twelve from underserved communities. In addition, two special scholarships have been established in honour of Late Shri Darbari Seth, the visionary Chairman of Tata Chemicals. It provides financial help to students from the marginalized population who wish to pursue higher education.
Employees and non-employees alike were awarded and recognized for their contributions to the community, which included tree planting, biodiversity protection, knowledge sharing, education, and many other activities.
Over the years, Tata Chemicals has worked tirelessly to protect local ecosystems. The organization has been able to transform 150 acres of barren land into the Biological reserve hotspot as a consequence of its ongoing efforts, with 40 acres completed last year as part of the Dry Deciduous Forest Development Project. This reserve protects endangered plant species, vegetation, and fauna, as well as serving as a haven for pollinators, particularly butterflies.
