Go Green

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

On the fifth of Satur­day, the In­ter­na­tional School of Chouifat had a Go Green cam­paign, in which they planted around 400 trees. Al­bizia Nurs­ery and Land­scape Ser­vices acted as a spon­sor, pro­vid­ing all the nec­es­sary trees to stu­dents, of all age groups, who then promptly started plant­ing them.

A stu­dent rep­re­sen­ta­tive spoke a few words con­cern­ing the im­por­tance of keep­ing our en­vi­ron­ment clean and tak­ing the nec­es­sary mea­sures to make sure our coun­try's soil re­mains healthy. "Let this not be the end of our aware­ness, but the start of our con­tri­bu­tion to so­ci­ety and our­selves. Let this be the first step in go­ing green... let this be the start of a bet­ter world and bet­ter us, be­cause that is what it means to Go Green."

In­spi­ra­tion is be­ing spread through­out the schools of Kur­dis­tan, and stu­dents all across the coun­try are ob­vi­ously be­com­ing more self aware of their sur­round­ings. Cam­paigns like these in­flu­ence the next gen­er­a­tion of lead­ers and makes sure that the gen­er­a­tions af­ter will un­der­stand the im­por­tance of keep­ing their en­vi­ron­ment clean as well and so on.

If pull comes to shove, the Earth wouldn't miss us and it would con­tinue on with it's life cy­cle. Which is why we have to take mat­ters into our own hands.

As Roo­sevelt once said, "Here is your coun­try. Cher­ish these nat­u­ral won­ders, cher­ish the nat­u­ral re­sources, cher­ish the his­tory and ro­mance as a sa­cred her­itage, for your chil­dren and your chil­dren's chil­dren. Do not let self­ish men or greedy in­ter­ests skin your coun­try of its beauty, its riches or its ro­mance."
