Environment Day, 4 June, 2021
NPS KRM celebrated World Environment Day on the 4th of June. Students showcased an eye-opening presentation on the need to conserve and restore our environment.
The programme started with a speech in memory of the late environmentalist, Sundarlal Bahuguna of the famed Chipko Movement. This was followed by the introduction of this year’s World Environment Day theme of ‘Ecological Restoration,’ which aims to assist in the recovery of ecosystems that have been degraded and destroyed, as well as conserving the ecosystems that are still intact.
An insightful video on the judicious use of tissue papers and then a beautiful shloka rendition, invoking abundance, peace and harmony, made an impression on the audience. Through discussions, students were also introduced to a number of ways in which they could impact the environment for the better. They were urged to take on these initiatives which can be carried out even from the safety of one’s home during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Day’s celebrations proved successful as everyone had a takeaway for environment restoration and sustenance.
