Manama, Bahrain June 05: Continuing its effort of promoting young environmental ambassadors and conservations of the environment today the South Asian Voluntary Association of Environmentalists (SAVAE), a Kashmir based organization which focuses on environmental policy in South Asia, on World Environment Day organized an ecology protection engagement for children.
Program Manager-SAVAE, Salma Ashai, who is stuck in the Kingdom of Bahrain due to COVID-19 pandemic celebrated World Environment Day involving children and raising their awareness on the protection of the environment.
The organization has earlier awarded young trekker of Kashmir aged only three years. “We want to promote environmental protection among the children and make them cheerleaders of critical environmental concerns that confront us all,” said Salma Ashai. She asserted to continue with similar eco-awareness drives in Bahrain and the South Asia region.
Three kids aged 4 years— Ayaan, Ayat and Duaa— who study in Nursery took part in the event. The trio made posters mentioning ‘Stop Cutting Trees’, ‘Save Trees, Save Earth’ and watered the plants. Later the kids were facilitated with a certificate of appreciation.
The underlying goal of organizing such events and activities has been to bring focus on campaigns to combat climate change, global warming, securing water conservation and sustainability globally. The theme of World Environment Day-2020 is to celebrate biodiversity— a concern that is both urgent and existential.
