The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) in association with Power System Operation Corporation (POSOCO), a wholly-owned subsidiary of PowerGridCo, has launched ‘Rhythms from the Riverbanks’, an educational programme for college students. The programme at TERI University aims to help youngsters understand the culture of the two river cities of India, Delhi and Kolkata. The project, which began as a pilot from November 2012 to March 2013, will encompass activities such as knowledge workshops, field visits, film-making workshops, action projects, rhythms village and photography competitions, a TERI release said. A total of 10 colleges in Delhi and Kolkata and about 100 students would be invited to participate in the programme. In the process, the programme will weave together the issues of history, culture, economy and sustainability of these river cities. The idea is to develop skills in young people to critically analyse the existing culture and lifestyle and be able to take measures to change the paradigm if so required and also develop leadership qualities, the release added.
