Plastic pollution is a big threat to the ecosystem. Awareness among the society about the eradication of plastic is must. Keeping this motto in mind, TERRE and Dhyaas have organized a non-verbal theatre act on awareness about the harmful effects of plastic at Patrakar Bhavan near Ganjawe square, Pune.
After the act, the 'Prakashache Bet' award was presented by TERRE to Mr. Shrikant Bhide for his magnificent contribution in creating awareness on environmental issues through theatrical acts. The award was presented at the hands of Fiona Mathews, President & CEO of ‘Earth Champions’, UK and Dr. Vinitaa Apte, Founder Director of TERRE.
Dr. Vinitaa Apte has initiated this award for appreciating the work of individuals who are sincerely doing a remarkable work for the environment on grass root level across Maharashtra. The award was started in the month of October 2017 and this was the concluding award of its first season.
