"The power of the population is indefinitely greater than the power in the earth to produce subsistence for man." - Thomas Malthus.
The pace at which the population is growing is a matter of concern and is one of the biggest issues on this earth for humanity and the environment. It is really important for us to bring more attention to these population woes. It has become even more important during the Covid-19 pandemic as it has deeply affected our health systems.
So, we at RCTCET did our part and tried to create awareness amongst youngsters regarding this matter on the occasion of World population Day celebrated on 11th of July. Our International Service Avenue accomplished this by organizing sex education seminars and conducting a 3 day social media awareness campaign. Through this campaign the club ensured that the young club members understand the significance of World Population Day. The first day was aimed to increase people’s knowledge about various issues like Women Empowerment, Exercising the choices, Quality education for all etc. and how these issues are associated with the population. The Pros and Cons of overpopulation were discussed and covered in the 2nd day of the awareness campaign, various statistics regarding this topic were also used to convey the points to our members. The 3rd day of the campaign was aimed at increasing peoples understanding and changing their perception regarding sex education, and also discuss its importance and how it can help the world in proper family planning which would result in population control. The club also organized various fun activities such as slogan making which helped convey the message of World Population Day.
Through this initiative the club’s aim to promote the message of ‘A little less makes a lot of difference’ was successful.
