The Environmental club this year is taking a radical approach compared to previous years. It has been segregated into two autonomous groups: Blue and Green.
Blue group’s responsibility is awareness through Facebook group and in-school operations. This year, Blue group will be posting articles on the ISM Environmental Group Facebook group, sharing related articles, generating attention for operations, and recycling papers in the school. Its goal is to spread as much awareness about environmental issues as possible outside the school as well as inside the school.
Green group’s responsibility is to actively partake in activities that involve environmental reformations. Our biggest project, Operation Purification, helps improve the cleanliness of the community by getting rid of the trash around the neighborhood near the school. Currently, new plans and efforts are being made to plant more trees around the area as well. In addition, we will be taking a short trip to Inle Lake and working with other NGOs to discuss solutions that would help prevent or contain pollution caused by pesticides with the locals.
