Climate change has become a major issue across the world, and while efforts to combat global warming are underway globally, awareness about the subject is being spread among young minds in India by an innovative initiative called the Science Express.
A collaborative initiative of Department of Science and Technology, Ministry of Environment and Railway Ministry, a spectacular and informative exhibition will be held in a train, which has covered over 1,22,000 km across the country, receiving more than 1.33 crore visitors at its 391 halts in 1,404 days, ever since it was flagged off in 2007.
The train has been redesigned as a Climate Action Special, as Souther Railways mentioned that, “After seven successful tours across India, Science Express has been redesigned on the theme “Climate Change” and from October last year.”
The Science Express Climate Action Special (SECAS) will run for seven months, halting at 64 locations in 20 states, covering about 19,800 km and conveying a strong message about climate change.
