Eco and Heritage Club Activity – 16/08/2019

Is development essential at the cost of destruction? This thought was discussed by teachers with the students of the Eco and Heritage Club. The interactive discussion about global warming, unexpected climate change, melting of glaciers, etc. helped the students to understand that increased carbon footprint due to cutting down trees and mining mountains for the sake of development will ultimately lead to the destruction of life and property. The landslides and floods that are occurring regularly in many states in India due to rampant felling of trees and landfills were discussed to drive home this point.

To create individual responsibility, students from classes 3 to 8 brought saplings of tulsi, aloe vera, cactus, flowering plants, etc. and planted them around the school campus. This activity gave the students a sense of responsibility towards nurturing nature and the environment.
