The Commissioned Volunteers of the Maureen Southern cluster team in the Tamale Zone held an awareness-raising campaign as part of World Earth Day 2022 celebration.
The event took place at the St. Monica’s Junior High School in Nyankpala in the Northern Region, April 7.
It aimed to help the students explore the harm and threats caused to the environment, due to the actions and inactions of humans, and to encourage effective ways of restoring the earth which nourishes and supports us.
The volunteers took the students through practical processes which exposed the everyday activities of humans which constantly degrades the environment. The students were also taught ways they can reduce, reuse and recycle plastic material.
One hundred and eighty-six (186) students and teachers of the school received a customized earth day book.
The activity is part of the Programme’s advocacy campaign on care for the earth. World Earth Day 2022 falls on April 22 and is on the theme: “Invest In Our Planet.”
