Earth is the only planet in the entire universe where life is possible. We have not inherited the earth from our fathers, but are borrowing it from our children. Protecting our eco-system is the need of the hour. They not only enhance people’s livelihoods but counteract climate change and stop the collapse of biodiversity.
Since 1974, World Environment Day has been celebrated every year on 5 June, engaging people across various platforms in an effort to address environmental issues that our planet Earth is facing.
Saving the environment means saving a life. Even here at The Yenepoya School, we know that we have a responsibility to care for our environment. So we decided to remind everyone, especially the future generation, about the importance of protecting our environment by giving a platform for inspiring positive change towards the environment.
In view of this, we at TYS have decided to Go Green and Plant Trees to engage children in nurturing and conserving Mother Nature. Children have to plant a sapling in a garden bag or small pot, take care of the same at home and bring it to school when physical school reopens to have a “Yenepoya Forest” in our premises.
“I have learned you are never too small to make a difference." – Greta Thunberg.
The actions we take to help protect the environment can make a major difference to it. So let’s work towards a better, safer and brighter world not only for us, but for all our future generations.
