The schools may conduct these activities in three groups of classes VI-VIII, IX-X and XI-XII till National Youth Day on January 12, 2016 and culminate it in the form of an 'Audio Visual Heritage Festival 2016'.

It was the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) which decided to observe October 27 as the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage. This is done by building global awareness of issues on preserving audiovisual material, such as sound recordings and moving images.

Through these activities CBSE aims to bring history and culture of our country alive for students through the screening of films from ester years, to promote awareness of and involvement of students in preserving the audiovisual heritage of our country, to inculcate respect for diversity, tolerance, mutual understanding and to inspire students to build a future through an understanding of the past and the present.
