Prime Minister Narendra Modi is to inaugurate an interactive experience centre on Swachh Bharat Mission named ‘Rashtriya Swachhata Kendra (RSK)’ today, August 8, 2020. The centre is a tribute to Mahatma Gandhi. The PM first announced about the centre on April 10, 2017, on the occasion of the centenary celebrations of Gandhiji’s Champaran Satyagraha.
The installations at RSK will introduce future generations to the successful journey of the world’s largest behaviour change campaign, the Swachh Bharat Mission. A balanced mix of digital and outdoor installations in the RSK will impart information, awareness and education on Swachhata and related aspects. The complex interplay of processes and activities will be presented through assimilative learning, best practices, global benchmarks, success stories and thematic messages in an interactive format.
In a brief, Hall 1 of the centre will feature a unique 360° audiovisual immersive show for the visitors which will narrate India’s Swachhata Story. Hall 2 offers a series of interactive LED panels, hologram boxes, interactive games and much more, to Bapu’s vision of a Swachh Bharat and initiatives taken by him. Moreover, the centre houses open-air displays of three exhibits showcasing anecdotes from the journey of India from Satyagraha to Swachhagraha. The artistic murals around the Kendra also chronicle the core elements of the Mission’s success.
The PM, following the tour of RSK, will interact with schools students from 36 students from Delhi representing the 36 states and union territories adhering to social distancing protocols. Further, he will address the nation.
