“If you plant a tree, you plant a life.”
Here are the glimpses of the celebration of Van Mahotsav or Forest Festival in the Academy to spread awareness of forest conservation and to save the environment.
Union Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar planted saplings on 1st july 21 and said that India has set a target of creating an additional 2 billion carbon sequestration by 2030. As part of this initiative, children in the Academy took it on their shoulders. In lower classes the kids were trained and guided by their mother teachers to do the plantation whereas in higher classes children performed it on their own as if taking the responsibility of being the guardians of the planet.
