Lions work to protect the environment
Lions Club of Soufrière Pitons in St Lucia sharing with a cancer survivor. LIONS CLUBS International recognises the profound impact man’s activity has on all components of the natural environment. Against this background, Lions are urged to take part in activities that can make incremental change to restoring and/or maintaining environmental quality; which the movement feels is of critical importance to the welfare of people and communities. Further, Lions have recognised the significant challenge that climate change poses to everyday life and in this respect, they have been working to build awareness and promote action to help communities build climate resilience.
Over the years, Lions and Leos across District 60B have worked in the areas of raising awareness, tree planting, waste management, reforestation and beach clean-ups to play their part in environmental protection, helping the communities they serve to create and maintain conditions for a sustainable future for present and future generations.
