World Environment Day was observed at Oil India, Electrical Engineering Department, on the 5th of June, 2014. This year, the Rig Electrical Section coordinated the events, and the result was a well attended and much appreciated event. The theme of this year was our rising seas, with the tag line “Raise your voice, not the sea level”. The event was coordinated worldwide by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and we did our bit by spreading the message amongst our industry mates, as well as the surrounding populace. Though we live far from the seas, we are nevertheless familiar with the effects of flooding, and can thus empathise with the inhabitants of coastal areas, who stand to lose a lot. Several active initiatives were undertaken to spread awareness about the environment. To conserve and promote the green cover of our surrounding areas, a tree plantation drive was undertaken, and local tree varieties were planted at various locations in and around our operational areas. In the evening, several videos were screened, highlighting the initiatives taken by local green warriors like Jadav Payeng, who single handedly planted a forest because he was disturbed by the fact of decreasing shelter for animals in the modern world. The importance of preserving the environment, as well as the global connection, was also stressed by lectures and photo exhibitions.

NWNC- World Environment Day 2014 As part of the Sri Lanka Navy’s community development and social responsibility project, the North Western Naval Command launched a mangrove planting project in accordance with the 2014 world environment day’s theme, “Raise your voice, Not the sea level’’, on 05th June 2014 under the patronage of Commander North Western Naval Area, Rear Admiral Dayananda Nanayakkara. The Command Medical Department of the North Western Naval Area has joined hands with Tokyo Cement Company [Lanka] PLC to uplift the environment in the North Western Naval Area as a prime social responsibility. Rapid destruction of mangroves by harmful human activities has led to coastal erosion, worsening effects of tsunami, reduction in sea food harvesting, air pollution, sea water pollution, increase in global warming, destruction of bio-diversity and imbalance in environmental sustainability. Under the mangrove planting project, 500 plants will be planted under natural environmental conditions at Kalpitiya lagoon, Kala-oya and Modaragan-aru estuary as the first step. A mangrove plants nursery has also been set up at SLNS Vijaya in Kalpitiya with the technical assistance of Tokyo Cement Company to assist the project.

clemencia,bel-air riviere seche, Mauritius

We are students of MGSS Moka ( Mahatma Gandhi Secondary School OF MOKA IN MAURITIUS). Yesterday was 2nd October, as every year my school celebrate the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi by the aim to spread the teachings of the Mahatma for a better fairy world without violence and full with peace and friendship. 2nd October is also known as the day of non-violence by the United Nations. So yesterday our school welcomed approximately a hundred of disable and old people among which some were abandoned by their children. It was a very emotional day for us (the students, teaching and non-teaching staffs). The guests were entertained by a cultural show which included traditional indian dances, prayers, singers. The amazing parts was when dumb students of a dumb school gave a shocking dance performance on the stage and the public gave a standing ovation and secondly a disable sang a very heart-touching song. The girl will be soon singing in Paris during a UNESCO concert. After the memorial cultural show, the guest were guided by the students of my school holding their hands with lots of love for lunch in a classroom. The classroom was very well decorated by volunteers. The guests were served briani ( a very famous eastern dish) accompanied with a traditional chutney and cucumber salad. The guest were gifted flowers and many other useful things which were bought from the money collected by donations from people. Then at last all the students gathered and the talented boys played famous Mauritian instruments including jiambe and ravane ending in a beautiful sega and all the guest gladly danced with our students.

RECICLADO DE PLASTICOS: Elegí realizar reciclado de plástico porque en mi barrio tiran muchas botellas en la calle que contaminan el lugar donde vivimos, la idea es que la gente tomen conciencia que las botellas plásticas contaminan el medio ambiente, mi intención es fabricar un contenedor, así las personas puedan tirar los plásticos, para luego reciclarlos, de esta manera estaremos protegiendo el medio ambiente.

ARBOLES PARA MI PLAZA: Para ello eh elegido poner semillas de CEIBO a germinar ,para luego esos plantines serán trasplantando en la plaza de mi Barrio , con el fin de mantener viva una especie que se encuentra en extinción en nuestra ciudad , son pocos los ejemplares que se ven por las calles , como así también son pocos los niños que conocen a nuestra FLOR NACIONAL "FLOR DE CEIBO". De esta manera contribuiré a mantener el medio ambiente positivo y a educar sobre nuestra flor nacional. MATHIAS GABRIEL PECCILE BECERRA 4°"A" ESCUELA CARLOS MARÍA DE ALVEAR

O painel foi muito elogiado e todos os alunos foram parabenizados pelo excelente trabalho desenvolvido, afinal todo tipo de trabalho divulgador é válido, pois só assim conseguiremos incentivar nossos jovens sobre a importância do meio ambiente como um todo!
