As global concerns for the climate crisis grow, child change-makers are passionately dedicated to protecting our planet. They recognize the severity of the crisis and are determined to reduce its effects. These children are taking action by organizing clean-up events, promoting sustainable practices, and leading the way toward a healthier and more sustainable future.
To observe the One Million Mobilization Campaign, initiatives were undertaken in the Sunamganj and Ghoraghat working areas. Children participated in a signature campaign, street dramas, drawing competitions, and tree plantation activities. Two street plays focused on creating awareness about climate change, its impacts, mitigation measures, and saving the world. These plays reached approximately 500 people, providing an educational and entertaining message.
In the flood-prone area of Sunamganj, children planted 100 trees of Blackberry, Olive, and Neem as part of observing Child Rights Week. They chose Blackberry and Olive because these plants are not damaged by water, and Neem was selected for its air sterilization properties. The tree planting initiative took place in schools, home yards, and river dams, raising awareness about the importance of tree plantation among the community.
In Ghoraghat, a signature campaign was held where 50 children pledged to reduce plastic pollution. Additionally, 50 children participated in a drawing competition on the climate crisis, using their artwork to depict the overall situation and create awareness within the community. The best three painters were awarded for their efforts.
These children environmentalists serve as role models for society, inspiring everyone to take responsibility for their actions and work together towards a resilient and sustainable world.
