Petroleum Geology, Global Warming and Energy Efficiency Campaign: Climate and
Environmental Concerns – eni Children’s Education Programme
Hazaribag, Jharkhand (India), 8th November, 2011
Background history of Energy Efficiency Campaign
This all started from the conference
on “Geology and Hydrocarbon
Potential of the NeoproterozoicCambrian Basins in India, Pakistan and
the Middle East”, which was
organized in February, 2008, by
University of Jammu and MPRG,
University College London, at Jammu,
India. This conference was sponsored
by eni India; EGI, University of Utah;
ONGC, India; Ministry of Earth
Sciences, Government of India; J&K
State Council for Science and
Technology and the Department of
Geology
and
Mining,
J&K
Government. Dr. Bindra Thusu, one of
the technical conveners of the
conference, put forth the idea of this
workshop, which was to inculcate the
interest of geological science among
the students of 10th – 12th standards. The reason for selecting the students of this age group
was to build their interest in geosciences and inspire them to choose this subject as a
carrier. Another motive was to sensitize these young brains how to cope with Global
Warming and Climate Change, because they are our future and they have to face this
menace. This idea was welcomed by other technical conveners of the conference and it was
3
decided to organize the workshop two days before the conference on 19 th February, 2008.
More than 150 students and accompanying teachers from 75 different schools of Jammu
and Kashmir participated in this workshop. The first addition of the booklet on “Petroleum
Geology, Global Warming and Energy Efficiency” was published and distributed among the
students. The first copy of the booklet was presented to Dr. Manmohan Singh, Hon’ble
Prime Minister of India, on 16th February, 2008 at his residence in New Delhi.
First eni – Children’s Education Programme launched at University of Jammu, Jammu (J&K, India) on
19th February, 2008
The meeting with Dr. Manmohan Singh, the Prime Minister of India to muster support for the Global
conference on Neoproterozoic Hydrocarbon Potential of India, Pakistan and Middle East. The
delegation included Dr. Bindra Thusu (MPRG, UCL), Prof Alan Smith (Cambridge University), Prof. G.
M. Bhat (Jammu University) and Dr. Jonathan Craig (eni, Milan)
4
A lecture series were delivered by Dr. Jonathan Craig and Prof. G. M. Bhat in which the
students were given a broad outline of petroleum systems and how hydrocarbons are
generated and trapped, the consequences of the Global Warming and Climate Change due
to the excessive usage of fossil fuels. The programme was well received by the students and
everyone who attended it. It was also appreciated by the State Government and requested
to repeat this activity for the children of Jammu and Kashmir State in three different
provinces separately. After achieving the success and popularity, the programme was
organized within a very short period of time in July 2008, at Leh and Kargil towns of Ladakh
province of J&K. The events were organized by University of Jammu and MPRG, University
College London and were sponsored by eni India under the umbrella of Corporate Business
Sustainability Programme ([email protected]).

Subsequently, two programmes were organized in partnership with the Rajasthan State
Education Department in Jodhpur in October 2008 and later in February 2009 in Jaisalmer
for which the second edition of the booklet was published and distributed among the
students. Later, in
May 2009, the
workshop
was
organized at S. P.
College Srinagar,

Within the short period of two years, this programme achieved global appreciation and it
was decided by eni e & p division in Milan to organize such programme beyond the
subcontinent in different countries of the world. In 2010, the first international event of
Children’s Education Programme was held in Accra (Ghana) where eni is actively exploring
for offshore oil and gas. This programme was held at University of Ghana in partnership with
the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation, the Ministry of Education of the Republic
Ghana, the Earth Sciences Department of the University of Ghana; MPRG, University College
London; EGI, University of Utah and Institute of Energy Research and Training (IERT),
University of Jammu. IERT was established at University of Jammu in May 2009, with the
objective of developing a new centre of excellence for energy related research. The IERT
was founded in collaboration between University of Jammu, University of Kashmir and
Ministers of Government of J&K State. In November 2011, the Children’s programme was
organized for the fifth time in India and this time in Hazaribag city of Jharkhand State.
Future programmes are planned in Ghana, Mozambique, Tanzania, Togo, Congo, Angola and
Kenya in 2012-2014.
The first international EEC Programme held at University of Ghana, Accra on 15 th
September, 2010.

Dr. Hareshwar Sinha introduced the theme of the workshop, which was the sensitization of
young brains with the concept of Energy Efficiency, Global Warming and Climate Change, for
which he approached 22 different schools of Hazaribag to draw the students for this global
energy efficiency campaign. Prof. G. M. Bhat presented the brief history of the Children’s
Energy Efficiency programme, which started in Jammu University in 2008 and subsequently
organized at five different places in India and the first international event in Accra, Ghana in
2010. After this, the booklet was released by the dignitaries present on the dice and the
token of appreciation was presented to all luminaries.

University inaugurated the workshop. In his address, Prof. Bhagat
appreciated the efforts of eni E&P Ltd and the University of Jammu for
choosing Hazaribag for this event. He advised the students to take the
full advantage of this workshop and prepare themselves to extenuate
the Global Warming because they are the one who are going to meet the consequences of
the climate change in the future. He remembered Acharya Vinoba Bhave who devoted his
whole life for the social reconstruction and to protect the environment. The university in
Hazaribag was aptly named after this great saint and the pioneer of Bhoodan (land gift)
movement. Prof. Bhagat expressed his concern regarding the environmental pollution due
to the exploitation of coal in the Jharkhand state, which in fact is supplying 40% of coal to
the country but at the stake of environment. He highly appreciated the tireless efforts and
allegiance by Dr. Jonathan Craig to launch this programme in India and abroad.
Mr. Abhay Kumar Sinha, Lecturer, Department of Geography (VBU),

the students and were educated with different processes of origin of these rocks. Many
fossils were displayed and their history and importance in the geological record were
demonstrated by the research scholars of IERT, University of Jammu and students of
