A thousand students representing various city schools participated in the activities which included competitive events like garbage installation, junk jam, on the spot art, face painting, tattoo, poster making, poetry, nukkad, etc., and a photographic representation of the grassroots conservation initiatives of Green Guard Nature Organization.
