The World Nature Conservation Day is celebrated on 28th July every year. It reminds us of the importance of healthy environment not only for the current generation but also for the future generation. The main purpose of celebrating World Nature Conservation Day is to conserve the animals and trees that are on the verge of going extinct from the natural environment of the Earth.
This year’s theme is “Forests and Livelihoods: Sustaining People and Planet”. This theme reminds us of the importance of coexistence of people and resources of the planet.
Due to the natural imbalance, we are facing several problems like global warming, various diseases, natural disasters, increased temperature among others. Therefore, it is important for each one of us to take a personal responsibility in conserving nature so as to achieve sustainable development and save the future generation. At Don Bosco Tech Africa, through the Green TVET pillar, we are committed to promoting green practices and culture, and inculcating green skills, attitude and knowledge within the Don Bosco TVET centres. A key component of the project is establishing tree nurseries within the TVET centres comprising of indigenous and fruit trees to improve vegetation, and forest cover.
