|Adopted a Rose in Earth Day...|
I hope it will grow well to give me immense contentment...
I feel every flower is a soul blossoming in nature...
World Earth Day is celebrated every year as an annual event by the people all across the world on 22nd of April in order to increase the awareness among people about the environment safety as well as to demonstrate the environmental protection measures. First time, the world earth day was celebrated in our school.
International Mother Earth Day provides an opportunity to raise public awareness around the world to the challenges regarding the well-being of the planet and all the life it supports.
International Mother Earth Day is celebrated to remind each of us that the Earth and its ecosystems provide us with life and food. Whenever I enter to the environmental science class to educate them, the first thing that I tell is, ‘Our planet is ill and reaching critical condition. We individual are engaged in matricide!’
Chief Seattle’s wisdom comes to us in the phrase “The Earth doesn’t belong to us. We belong to the Earth.” The Earth provides us with all we need to exist and asks for nothing in return. We have taken advantage of this and exploited her for profit. The abuse and destruction of the earth has increased to the point where we have not only poisoned the earth and it’s creatures, but also ourselves. We are all part of the environment and what we do to the environment; we also do to ourselves, as well as to our future generations.
Each being on Earth depends on clean water, clean air, and healthy topsoil. It’s time to realize that our most threatening enemy is our ignorance.
This year I sense myself fortunate, as I have given an opportunity to be an environmental science focal person, nature club coordinator and also I am coordinating the SUPW for class PP, II and IV. So, that we collaboratively visualize the situation of our mother earth. So, on particular day I thought of involving whole school at least a day to participate and appreciate what our mother earth is doing for us, but I couldn't. However my environmental science students and nature club members remained dynamic to initiate the program by them and we did the following activities:
Our earth day started with the display of banner, speech by Kezang Tempa(Captain:Nature club), adoption of flower pot, then whole day junk food was prohibited. We also performed outdoor activities related to the earth safety like new trees plantation (planted charinuma and roses) , picking up roadside waste materials, recycling of wastes, energy conservation and so many.
Starting form, 22nd of April, school management made a set of laws that no student are allowed to eat junk food! When it comes to girl’s hostel, it’s strictly prohibited. They are not allowed to carry junk food in hostel; I don’t mean that they cannot consume at all. They can have in cafeteria, dump wrappers in proper place, that’s environmental friendly, but girls are junckholics and wild too…. More waste comes from junk food, thts my observation... I also stopped burning the waste, instead I borrowed sacks from kitchen and I asked girls to segregate the waste and put it inside the sack so that we can recycle it. “Earth Day should encourage us to reflect on what we are doing to make our planet a more sustainable and livable place.” – Scott Peters. We find the courage to initiate the changes we wish to see in the world, the wisdom to carry them out wisely and the heart to love with generosity and compassion. May we recognize that we are falling apart so we can come together, and respect each other.
It also recognizes a collective responsibility, to promote harmony with nature and the Earth to achieve a just balance among the economic, social and environmental needs of present and future generations of humanity.
