Arya Gurukul School organised a virtual event on the ocassion of World Environment Day day to discuss matters concerning the Environment, restoration of nature, curbing pollution, bringing sustainable changes, making the earth greener and a better place to live in.
This year, World Environment Day’s theme was Ecosystem Restoration. Around 500 students participated in the event where they depicted the beauty of nature through their art, posters, songs and dances. The event went live on YouTube and Facebook and garnered more than 1000 views, likes and shares.
The school’s very own music video, which was released on World Environment Day was played for everyone. The brilliant visuals and the heart- rendering lyrics motivates one to re-evaluate one’s habits and make a change to the environment.
Various other performances such as a Dance performance, rhythmic yoga and recitation of poems had inherent messages that were very nicely depicted. It brought out the efforts taken to collaborate remotely to put up such a wonderful show.
Arya Gurukul’s Student Council member and Environmental Editor, Rugma Biju, shared her views on the theme. Her speech was ‘solution-oriented’ and spoke more about what we can do better rather than the problems with the way in which we treat our environment.
Stories of “Nature Warriors” like Jharkhand’s Lady Tarzan- Padmashree Jamuna Tudu and another Padmashree Awardee Jadhav Payand’s story was too shared on the platform. They have been fought strongly for forest conservation.
Rajesh Bhavsar, a nature enthusiast and social worker, gave highly insightful presentations on how to make ‘Seed Balls’ and Compost using household garbage.
Students of Arya Gurukul, right from an early age, have been discussing about curbing the use of plastic. They are encouraged not to waste water, to reuse waste and to take care of their surroundings. On this day, they were reminded that every small act that they perform whether it is making posters, singing songs or voicing their opinion through speeches, would make an impact.
“We hope that the students and their depiction of the wonders of nature stirred a feeling of concern towards the environment. At Arya Gurukul, we believe that children learn when they ‘do’ and events such as these sensitize the performers, the audience and the organisers in some way or the other. It is therefore, our endeavour to try and make an effort towards contributing to the change that we want to see around us”, expressed Neelam Malik, Director, AryaGlobal group of schools.Campus, News
