As part of a commitment to the environment, World Snow Day Organisers are encouraged to teach children how to take care of their natural surroundings. Organisers are taking simple steps to educate children in the long term on this important theme.

Located in India at the heart of one of world’s most important eco systems, Seeking Himalayas (www.seekinghimalayas.com) provides visitors and locals, trekking and cultural tours in the region. The tourism organisation staged an excellent World Snow Day activity that showed children the joys of snow sports. As part of a successful day, participants were provided a simple and short brochure with steps to protect the environment. The practical guide was developed and published by Seeking Himalayas.

Co-Founders of Seeking Himalayas - Panshul Mehta and Ashok Kumar, commented “In today’s fast-paced technology driven lifestyle, we have been noticing that kids are becoming increasingly glued to computers, mobile phones and junk food; but disconnected from nature. World Snow Day was a perfect time to not only have fun in the snow with kids, encourage inter-personal interaction and team spirit but also a perfect platform to have informal chats with the kids and create an awareness about healthy lifestyle, nature and how to take care of the fragile ecology of our Himalayas”
