The Cityzenship Programme planned a few interesting activities, under the umbrella of Youth Programmes, on Earth’s Day. Promoting the 2016 theme ‘Trees for the Earth’, it aspires to achieve a global target of planting 7.8 billion trees by 2020.
The activities arranged for primary and secondary level school students included a poetry competition with the theme ‘Greener Tomorrow’ and Plant a Sapling activity. Class 4 and 5 students from the Central Region schools enthusiastically participated in the Poetry Competition and the three winners at each level in school were awarded certificates. The children made a remarkable contribution in Plant a Sapling activity as well and received ‘Environment Friendly Citizens’ certificates.
