World Environment Day, (WED) is celebrated every year on June 5 to call global awareness to take positive environmental action to protect nature and the planet Earth. With an aim to increase awareness on environmental issues among students and citizens, Kanoria Foundation and Srihari Global School took the initiative to plant saplings to celebrate World Environment Day at Shristinagar, Asansol, where several students from Srihari Global School within the age group of 8 to 12 years and the residents of Shristinagar planted saplings to spread the message to society for protecting the environment and to create pollution free environment for coming generations. The initiative was spearheaded by Dr Hari Prasad Kanoria, Chairman, Kanoria Foundation.
“This year’s theme was ‘Connecting People to Nature’. It invites us to think about how we are part of nature and how our existence depends on mother earth. It empathises on going outdoor and into nature to enjoy. Mother earth treasures for us bounty, gems, coal, diamonds, gold, silver, fuel, fruits, habitation to give oxygen and carbon and water. Mother earth reaches us to serve selflessly”, said Dr. Hari Prasad Kanoria.
World Environment Day is the biggest annual event for positive environmental action. This year Canada chose the theme and will be at the centre of celebrations around the planet. World Environment Day is a day to clean-up neighbourhood, to act against the criminal activities on wildlife and to replanting forests.
