The purpose of the scheme is to raise general awareness on social issues or public interest so that the rural and poor women can realize their potential in the family and society.
Awareness is a relative concept. Awareness may be focused on an internal state, such as a visceral feeling, or on external events by way of sensory perception. Insects do not have consciousness in the usual sense because they lack the brain capacity for thought and understanding.
Awareness is the ability to directly know and perceive, to feel, or to be cognizant of events. More broadly, it is the state of being conscious of something.
Awareness Generation may include :
Film screenings & Talks, debates and panel discussions
Points to consider include:
Knowing your audience. If possible, try to choose a film or frame your event so that it taps into local concerns, interests and priorities. Are there any topical local debates that your event could tie into, or are people in your community interested in particular aspects of energy transition, whether that be energy generation, food, transport or something else? The more relevant you make your event to the community, the more interest you are likely to receive.
Framing it positively. Film screenings about climate change and other environmental issues can make people feel overwhelmed by the scale of the challenge. It is therefore important to avoid the doom and gloom and to frame the event positively, with time for discussions about the issues and possible solutions, so people can feel engaged and supported. The choice of film can be key to setting the right tone, so make sure you choose carefully.
Inviting local speakers. When planning who you would like to attend, consider whether there are any speakers you could invite who could raise the profile of the event. Inviting a local councillor, well-known community activist or local expert to speak or to be involved in a panel discussion after the film screening can entice more people to attend, as well as helping to connect your project with useful people and organisations.
Encouraging interaction and participation. Your event will be more fun and engaging if people are encouraged to interact with each other. This could be through setting aside some time for discussions around the film or incorporating an informal socialising and networking session. Interactive activities can be particularly valuable at a film screening event to ensure the main messages get across and to make the experience more engaging and active.
