Environment Week Activities

“Our Environment provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed,” are the wise words of Mahatma Gandhi. Indeed, it is the need of the hour to sensitize masses about being compassionate towards our planet. Every element of this blue and green planet is required to be nourished by us for our children to be nurtured.

World Environment Day is the biggest annual event for positive environmental action and takes place every 5th June. The theme for Environment Day 2019 was “Air pollution”-We can’t stop breathing, but we can do something about the quality of air that we breathe. The theme implores us to get outdoors and to nature, to appreciate its beauty and its importance, and to take forward the call to protect the Earth that we share.

To mark this occasion, many events were held to demonstrate support for Environmental Protection all over the world. Dunes International School also initiated this cause wherein numerous activities were held for an entire week focusing on Environmental issues.

The students across all the grades enthusiastically participated in the Environment week activities with a belief that every action of human beings will take them towards a GREENER AND CLEANER EARTH.

Assemblies were organized with the themes of environment were a treat for the eyes to see many young minds working towards spreading awareness for the greener environment. Bird feeding, mulching and seed bank construction are some activities which held to depict the fact that our Environment is the culmination of multiple and diverse energies, which is brought together to create a rich aesthetic experience with a message of harmony and co-existence and should be protected by us.

Students of secondary section created an innovative project focused on the theme of the year with reused old objects to convert it to an air filter. Through this activity they learned to go back to the nature and connecting with it is all about living as naturally as possible, making most of the natural resources and energy available.

Making simple modifications in our everyday life, we can all contribute to the cause of environment protection. So let us all join our hands to protect environment in saving the precious natural resources ensuring a healthy future
