Students learn ways to protect environment

Disadvantaged students today participated in workshops learning how to protect the environment on the occasion of the Earth Day.

A group of 80 students displayed poster exhibition, participated in quiz on the Earth Day and performed plays highlighting issues like 'save Trees', 'save electricity', 'stop wastage of water' and 'stop use of plastics' at the American Centre here.

Started in the US in 1970, Earth Day is an annual event during which events are held worldwide to demonstrate support for environmental protection.

Highlighting the role of youth in tackling environmental issues, American Centre director Joanne Joria said, "Young people are amazing agents of change. They are our future and are key agents in making our world cleaner and greener".

Rachel Sunden, Deputy Director of the American Center, encouraged students to consider career options focusing on the environment.

"There are many different career paths for people who want to help the environment. Everyone from architects to product designers to farmers can make a huge difference if they consider green options in their work," she said.

The programme marked the culmination of a 60,000 USD grant on 'A Campaign for Green Cities' which Earth Day Network and Banglanatak.com received from the US Embassy in New Delhi.
