At Eclectic Love, we recognize the importance of promoting environmental awareness and sustainability, particularly among the youth. This is why we were proud to participate in the International Mother Earth Day celebration, a global campaign aimed at raising awareness about the threats to our planet’s well-being and the need for a just balance between economic, social, and environmental needs.
Our International Mother Earth Day program was a success, as we were able to engage with students from two basic schools and promote environmental awareness and sustainability through various activities. These activities included a pre-survey to assess the level of knowledge and awareness among students regarding environmental protection issues, an educational session on earth conservation and restoration, a tree planting session, and the formation of green clubs to promote environmental awareness and sustainability.
The pre-survey conducted in both schools showed that while most students had basic knowledge about environmental conservation, they lacked awareness about the severity of the issue and the need for immediate action. This is why we felt it was important to provide educational sessions on earth conservation and restoration, where we discussed topics such as climate change, pollution, and waste management. The session was facilitated by Mr. Henry Nunoo from the Environmental Protection Agency, who provided the necessary resources to educate the students and answer any questions they had on waste management.
The tree planting session was held in both Ho-Dome E.P Basic and A.M.E.Zion schools, where we planted a variety of trees to help students understand the benefits of trees in mitigating climate change. The Forestry Commission provided the necessary resources (seedlings) to facilitate the planting process. We planted eleven trees at Ho-Dome E.P Basic school, which included four poly trees, three neem trees, and four water trees. At A.M.E.Zion, we planted fourteen trees, which included six water trees, five poly trees, and three neem trees. The students were encouraged to participate actively, and they planted a variety of trees in the schools’ compounds.
The formation of green clubs was also an essential milestone, as it created a platform for students to take action towards protecting the environment. The club’s activities included recycling programs, litter cleanups, and awareness campaigns to encourage their peers to be more environmentally conscious. The green club at Ho-Dome E.P Basic school consisted of sixteen members, while the green club in A.M.E Zion school consisted of thirty-two students. We are confident that these green clubs will continue to play an essential role in promoting environmental awareness and sustainability among students.
The International Mother Earth program was successful in promoting environmental awareness and sustainability among students. The program’s activities were well-received, and the students showed enthusiasm and interest in learning more about environmental conservation and restoration. The feedback received from the students, teachers, and other stakeholders was overwhelmingly positive, which further motivates us to continue our efforts to promote environmental awareness and sustainability.
Moving forward, we plan to expand the program to include more schools and organizations. We believe that the program’s success can be enhanced by increasing community involvement and engagement, promoting sustainable practices in schools and organizations, and providing ongoing education and resources to support environmental conservation efforts. Overall, the International Mother Earth Program serves as a model for promoting environmental awareness and sustainability among the youth and fostering the next generation of environmental leaders.
At Eclectic Love, we are committed to promoting environmental awareness and sustainability among the youth. We believe that environmental issues are everyone’s responsibility, and we must all take action to protect our planet. We will continue to engage with schools and organizations to promote environmental awareness and sustainability and make a positive impact on our environment.
