"We have a single mission to protect and hand on the Planet to the next generation." Towards this goal, took a step forward towards the Climate Action Project known Internationally. This is a 6week project which is being taken up by the students guided by the facilitators in order to bring the change.
Week 1-During Week 1
Students were made aware of the Climate Change and Climate Action Project through an inhouse webinar.
Students made videos and presentations on Climate Change.
Students have undertaken a role play to impart knowledge about the role plants play in a better environment along with the external factors which are the sun, water, oxygen, and chlorophyll, and explained how these external factors are responsible for climate stability. They further elaborated on how the absence of plants will hamper the environment and will ultimately lead to climate change and global warming.
"No Body on this planet is going to be untouched by the impacts of Climate Change."
Week 2- What are the effects of climate change? Global tree planting activity #PlantEd
The main area of focus was upon the main effects climate change brings along. The increased changes in the ecosystem sum up the entire range of effects that occur throughout the planet. However, the students were taught some of the main reasons for the cause and effects of climate change with the help of a video and a presentation. Students participated in the Global Plantation Activity under PlantEd with full enthusiasm. Students of Grade 3 & 4 have told the causes and effects of Climate Change ---Global Warming, Deforestation, Flood, Extinction of Animals, Global Warming, Melting of Ice, Migrating Animals, etc in a video presentation. Students of Grade 5,6,7 took up the Seedling project to understand the consequences of different environmental conditions on the growth of different plants and the long term impact of pollution on living organisms. Students also made a Pollution Catcher as a project.
GIVE A HOOT, DON’T POLLUTE
LETS VIEW THE ISSUE GLOBALLY
“We believe that a life without ideas is an unfulfilled existence. Not only having ideas is important, but to express them, share them, and implement them is what makes a difference in this world.”
We at Millennium World School, Faridabad believe that a lot of problems in the world can be solved if we talk to each other. As a part of Week 3 of Climate Action Project, a special session was arranged for Grade V, VI and VII in collaboration with Istituto Comprensivo Don Milani Carbonia School from Italy, Europe and Ramagya School, Dadri. It was a fun filled, interactive highly enriching session during which all the participants presented their views on the issue of climate change. The students also indulged in a constructive Question/Answer round where they shared their insight and research. They students exchanged about the climate change in their respective countries and the suggested prospective solutions discussed about the causes and effects of climate change in their respective countries as well as the world, and pledged to be part of the solution to climate change .
The participants were highly enthusiastic throughout the session. This session proved Virtual interaction with people can be as good as interacting face to face. We all believe in the thoughts of Helen Keller where she specified “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much" with these views MWS Faridabad has taken up a step ahead to join the Global Community working towards the social issue of Climate Change.
Together we can and we will make a difference.
