It was the second session of Environmental Education at the Government Higher Primary School, Neralakatte. Four volunteers, i.e. Nikolina, Ellen, Sofia and Ellen from FSL-India, together with Manjesh and Dinesh (for the translation), talked about the three different types of pollution. The children already knew a lot about the topic and therefore, they could interact well.
