A very Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening to Honorable Principal Sir/Madam, respected teachers, seniors and my dear friends, Warm Greetings to Everyone!
Our topic for today’s assembly is ‘Save Environment’.
The environment is basically the atmosphere and surrounding geographical area. The environment is the main source for human beings, plants and animals to live in and get food from, to eat, to play, to work, to enjoy, to walk, to breath, to hear, to drink or to overall exist. To run life in a healthy happy way, we all need a healthy and natural environment.
We all have the responsibility to monitor the environment and day to day actions that are being done here. The ecology or environmental balance and natural cycles have become imbalanced which is very hard to bring back and give it a natural shape. Environmental can be protected at various levels: individual, organization controlled or governmental levels, to ensure sustainable development.
Human beings play a vital role in the conservation of the environment. The good or bad environment depends on our activities. By our unscrupulous actions, we are contributing to the degeneration of the natural environment which in turn negatively affects human life on the planet Earth. All the human actions and activities in this modern world directly impact the whole ecosystem and environment. We should monitor our actions and ensure that we restrict our hazardous activities so that environment can be safeguarded.
It is our duty to protect the environment. But today our environment is under threat because of our deeds and decisions. We are responsible for pollution in the environment. Deforestation, mining, unjustified usage of machines and electricity, using several vehicles for traveling short distances, etc., are responsible for pollution. Global warming, depletion of natural resources, untimely rains, cyclones, diseases and life amidst pollution and many more are the traits that show we are living in an imbalanced environment. Knowing this that we are ruining the surroundings for us as well as future generation, we should stop right away. We should control our activities that threaten our environment.
Though the problem has aggravated to quite a great extent, but it does have a solution. It’s just that we will have to keep faith in ourselves that we can do something for our planet. So let’s pledge to “Save our Mother Earth” in whatever ways possible for us.
There are various ways adopting which we can effectively contribute towards the cause. For instance, we can grow more and more trees in our living surroundings as well as where we find an empty piece of land. Or if we have a backyard or a piece of land at our home, then start planting trees. Plants, as we all know, absorb carbon dioxide for the process of photosynthesis and release oxygen into the environment. The estimation says that a single tree can soak up to one ton of carbon dioxide till the time it lives. No issues, if we don’t have much space, we can even keep small tubs of plants in our balcony, doorway or windows.
Secondly, use less of our personal vehicles and habituate our self to use public transport and bicycles for short distances. Besides, do not waste energy at home or office. Switch off the device, when not in use. Then we can use fluorescent light bulbs in place of normal bulbs. We may find these bulbs expensive, but trust me they really help in bringing down our electricity bills and emit 70 percent less heat in comparison to normal bulbs.
We should also use water wisely; turn off the tap immediately after use. Don’t dump the garbage anywhere and dispose the waste in dustbin. Encourage others too in our family and at our work place to adopt these measures and save our environment from the impending doom.
To conclude my discussion, I will like to request you all to please do your bit and monitor the activities you perform and also educate others to safeguard their actions and protect environment. We should promote and contribute to the projects run by the government and various NGOs that focus on saving the environment. A lot of major environmental problems would disappear if we all curb the excessive use of petroleum, coal and natural gas. Let us grow more trees and create all possible ways to dispose off waste correctly. The focus should entirely shift on renewable and reusable sources of energy. These would help Save Environment from global warming.
Thank you all.
