GEMS International School marks the World Population Day
School students join 92.7 BIG FM to highlight the problem of growing population every second
Gurgaon,11th July 2011: The young sparks of GEMS International School (GIS), Palam Vihar, Gurgaon joined BIG M, one of India’s leading radio channel in its awareness drive against the hazards of ever growing world population at the channel’s Studio in New Delhi. The population boom demands immediate attention to curtail future irreparable damage and GEMS International School owned by GEMS Education, world’s largest K-12 school operator, has stepped in to shoulder this cause as a responsible school by creating awareness on World Population Day. The world population is all set to reach the seven billion mark in October 2011 raising concerns worldwide. India's current population is estimated at 1.21 billion which effectively means that about one seventh of the world population resides in India!
The GISians displayed their sensibility and concern towards this grave issue and brought alive the image of an overcrowded world. Together with popular child artists ……… students from GEMS International School expressed their feelings of living in a populous country and did a gig to demonstrate the adversities of an over populated, crowded and burdened existence. The students also spoke about the vicious circle of population which further leads to numerous other world problems like poverty, illiteracy, deterioration of resources and many more.
Commenting on this, Sudha Rajamohan, Principal, GEMS International School said, "GEMS believes in preparing its students for the real world. The growing population in India and elsewhere is a big issue that needs to be addressed actively by our World Leaders. I am proud of my GISians being a part of BIG FM’s awareness movement and assure that GEMS International School will continue to lend its support to combat against such causes in future as well.”
Sudha Sadhanand, Radio Operations Head Delhi, 92.7 BIG FM said, "It is our endeavor at 92.7 BIG FM to offer audiences clutter breaking and innovative content, which enhances lives, as we live out brand line Suno Sunao, Life Banao! Through this initiative, we wish to create awareness for the ever growing concern of population control. We are proud to shoulder this cause by reaching out and educating millions through our widespread, 45 station network."
