(Protect the environment, It will protect You)

 

INTRODUCTION:

                The environment encompasses all living and non-living elements of the Earth, including the air, water, land, and ecosystems. Its importance lies in the fact that it sustains all life on our planet, providing us with the resources, services, and conditions necessary for our survival and well-being. The environment supports a complex web of interdependent relationships between organisms and their surroundings, maintaining a delicate balance that is essential for the functioning of ecosystems.

                  Understanding and valuing the environmental importance is crucial because it directly affects our quality of life, both now and in the future

                  Recognizing the environmental importance is crucial for adopting sustainable practices, mitigating climate change, preserving biodiversity, and ensuring a habitable planet for future generations. It requires collective action, informed decision-making, and a commitment to responsible stewardship of our natural resources. By valuing and protecting the environment, we can create a more sustainable and resilient world for ourselves and the countless other species with which we share the Earth.

                Environmental awareness is now a necessity in the anthropogenic era due to the globalization of society. This allows for the measurement of offenses against the environment. The moment has come to reconsider our anthropocentric perspectives on nature. Environmental education has the potential to raise awareness of people's need for remedial environmental actions, which has been recognized and acknowledged by educators around the world for decades.

The global need to improve the idea of environmental conservation has been driven by the collective realization that environmental education has been imparted over the previous few years. However, the actions taken by people and other organizations are few and sporadic. Recently, a new pattern in children's environmental awareness development has been noticed.

              Youths are supposed to be more proactive and caring, and as a result, they can change the world by influencing adults via their thoughts and deeds. Improvements in health, hygiene, demographics, and productivity can all be greatly influenced by environmental education; almost every one of these characteristics is connected to quality of life. By developing capabilities, raising skill levels, and supplying more productive work, it significantly contributes to expanding social chances for individuals and improving their quality of life. This is the fundamental reason of College came up with the concept of establishing  an eco club.

Eco Club is a nonprofit organization that encourages teachers and students to learn about and take action to improve our environment.

Eco Club is a nonprofit organization that encourages teachers and students to learn about and take action to improve our environment.
