Throw Back! See Environmental Sanitation Awareness Campaign Calypso Mexico Dance the 2016 Final Year COOU Mass Comm Class Did in Anambra (Video)

It was an innovation of some sort. Instead of the usual face-to-face or group discussions with the pubic on why they should always keep the environment clean, the 400 level students of Mass Communication, Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University (COOU), 2016 class, decided to attract public attention on environment through another means.

They practiced a popular dance called Calypso Mexico for about two months and on the D-day, sometime in September 2016, about 100 students dressed in different attires representing different professions, including different uniforms of various departments in the institution to perform for environment.

The aim was to show that people in every profession should be concerned about environmental sanitation. The attires reflected the following: doctors, nurses, lawyers, engineers, market women, native doctor, Priests, Reverend sisters, students of various departments, micky and miny mouse to represent children, among others.

The students first displayed brooms, waste bins, mops and other materials for cleaning the environment before the dance. They actually carried those materials for about three days, dressing in corporate wears to school while holding brooms and waste bins.

They performed four times withing the school campus and two times in the popular Oye Achalla market before a crowd.

  1. This is one of the things that show one went to a university. We were fortunate to have been part of this genius environmental awareness campaign. Environment, an important aspect of our living that is not given the attention it deserves.

  2. This is a great move by the students of 400level. This is a good way of telling everyone to keep his/her surrounding neat and clean.
