World Environment Day 2020: The Minister for Human Resource Development, Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank has asked students to each plan one tree. The #OneStudentOneTree campaign was launched last June.
To observe World Environment Day 2020, the Minister of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ has asked students to each plant a tree. The ministry had launched a 'One Student, One Tree' campaign in 2019. It was launched with an aim to plant one million trees across all Kendriya Vidyalayas in the country. The ministry also promoted the Samagra-Shiksha-Jal Suraksha scheme launched in August 2019 to create awareness about water conservation among school students. Mr Pokhriyals had said that “as many as 10 crore students in Kendriya Vidyalayas have pledged to save one litre of water every day and once crore trees will be planted”.
On the occasion of World Environment Day, MHRD said: “On this #WorldEnvironmentDay, let us take a pledge to make conscious & continuous efforts to nurture our nature! Students & teachers, we urge you to join the #OneStudentOneTree and #SamagraShikshaJalSuraksha initiatives & help us save the environment.”
Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’, said: “Today, we celebrate June 5 as "World Environment Day". I think that from the occasion of this day itself, we should accept Environment Day as a day of contemplation for mankind by embracing our lives as an opportunity to mould ourselves in accordance with nature.”
