STH ACTIVITIES : Awareness campaign in Turuk, Sikkim - 04 July 2013

STH has always made an effort to educate the youth, about the hazards of landslides and extreme weather events in the Sub Himalayan region.
On 04 July 2013 STH conducted an awareness camp in Turuk bustee (village) in South Sikkim. There were around 85 people in attendance, most of them  students. STH talked about the recent events in Uttarakhand, cloud burst and a real danger of such an event occuring in this region along with the prevention and mitigation aspects of landslides.
