First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure

I was given an online tour and a history trip to the foundation days of GreenPeace. We also made a skype call. I was guided what was to be done during the internship.

Main tasks

I was mainly given the tasks of data collection so that a base of GreenPeace could be created in Chandigarh.

I made lists of schools, clubs etc where the proliferation tasks of could be done.

I was asked to draft RTIs where ever suitable information was not available.

I was asked to do awareness drives in the city and collect the pictures of the people I had talked to in the awareness drive. I had to persuade people, collect signatures and submit them.

I was asked to collect the Pollution rates in and around Chandigarh.

There was periodic work given. There were strict timings. The people at Green Peace do really try to make personal relations and like to know their interns up close. They create a personal and happy bond for a good working environment.
