Earth Day ovserved at Guwahati with Go Green

On  April 22, Social Media Club, Assam observed Earth Day at Regional Science Center campus, Guwahati with a tree plantation programme involving 200 school children. Earth Day celebrated everywhere around the globe draws an important thrust upon saving the Mother Nature and our Earth. Started in the year 1970, Earth Day basically supports environmental protection.

Under the first phase of project “GO GREEN”, SMCAssam acquired around 100 tree saplings from the office of the DFO, Social Forestry, Basistha to plant on the occasion of Earth Day. The Tree Plantation drive  was also witnessed by V.S Sharma, Project Coordinator, Regional Science Center, Khanapara.

With the changing climate and global warming, we all need to be responsible towards the protection of our environment. With this motto in mind, SMCAssam along with Centre for Rural Develeopment (Rickshaw Bank) and Green Shield is doing the project “GO GREEN” covering Earth Day and World Environment Day on June .5
