Projects 2021

DEFORESTATION

Students will  research on  the importance of forests, the role they play in shaping the environment, and the impact of deforestation on every aspect of our lives.

Students will collaborate in groups and use digital tools  and create PPT for the same. 

PROTECT OUR FORESTS

Forests are home of mammals, birds, insects, and many other animals. These living things all depend on each other to survive. Forests can help unlock many more secrets about the climate. They take carbon dioxide from the air and store it in trees, plants and the soil. They are also home to much of the world's wildlife.

Students will be encouraged to grow plants.

The causes and effect of climate change globally

Humans are increasingly influencing the climate and the earth's temperature by burning fossil fuels, cutting down forests and farming livestock. This adds enormous amounts of greenhouse gases to those naturally occurring in the atmosphere, increasing the greenhouse effect and global warming.

Potential solutions for climate change

Some of the most promising ways to mitigate climate change are what we call “natural climate solutions”: the conservation, restoration, and improved management of land, in order to increase carbon storage or avoid greenhouse-gas emissions in landscapes worldwide.
