The PAN KV Maligaon Alumni Association (PAN-KVMAA) initiated a plantation drive with the intention to generate awareness towards climate change and find ways to combat it, at the premises of Kendriya Vidyalaya, NFR Maligaon on August 13.
The association plans to take this activity forward with regular such plantation activities round the year within city of Guwahati.
Varun Mitra, deputy commissioner, KVSRO, Guwahati, was present on the occasion along with Garima Sodhi, deputy chief personnel officer, NF Railway, Maligaon; and encouraged the activity by planting saplings in the school.
“It is a great experience to visit Kendriya Vidyalaya, Maligaon and to witness how the alumni association is active to bring in positive changes in the society as well as in the school. The current COVID situation has taught us the significance of nature. It is our moral obligation to preserve nature for the future generation,” said Varun Mitra.
Taking the thought forward, Angshuman Dey, president, PAN-KVMAA emphasized the need to be more environment friendly. He said: “Cutting of trees on pretext of road construction and other infrastructure development is the root cause of global warming resulting in climate change and that is why we are facing such extreme climate changes. It is time that we think and act towards fundamental transformation in all aspects of society; starting with plantation of trees that maintain the earth’s ecosystem and generates oxygen that is vital for life sustenance on this planet.”
