“If we don’t respect the environment it will not respect human in return” said Ms Bhakti Sharma.

Archdiocese of Bhopal in collaboration with St. Theresa’s Girls School, Piplani organized students’ interaction on plastic pollution and climate change on August 28, 2018. The speakers from the students of class 9th to 12th were debating a motion on climate change and plastic pollution through which they created an awareness on protecting the environment. Many of the speakers brought out the example of Kerala situation as a symbol of human negligence to protect environment.  The Social worker and Barkhedi Abdullah's Sarpanch Ms Bhakti Sharma graced the occasion. 

The program began with a prayer dance presented by the students of the school followed by lighting of the lamp.  

Ms Bhakti Sharma, in her address, said that we have to make joint efforts to keep our surroundings neat and clean. She said that during the rainy season the drainage gets damaged easily due to throwing the plastic waste. This situation we see in many places of Bhopal city and the road gets blocked giving numerable problems to the traffic.  Therefore it becomes necessary not to use polythene in our homes and its surroundings, she added.   

PRO, Fr Maria Stephen said in his address that the purpose of organizing this interaction is not to limit oneself with an awareness but to develop one’s own skills to protect the environment with the group and individual activities.  

PR Office coordinator, Mr. Sudhir Sharma encouraged the students to take leadership to make difference from other institutions in terms of controlling plastic pollution.  

During the interaction a group of students said that- the use of Plastic becomes necessary in our life.  It cannot be eliminated completely but, at the same time a proper disposal and recycling of plastic items should be carried out. On the contrary, the other students expressed their view on the topic saying- usage of plastic should be completely eliminated as it is harming the environment. The human activities are responsible for climate changing & global warming.  

Trophies were distributed to all the participants by the invited guests.

At the end of the program Sister Rosy Joseph, the Principal of the institution, thanked PR Office team and the Archdiocese, the staff and the students for the organisation and participation. Sr. Sarita, the administrator of the school and all the students of class 9th to 12th were present although the interaction.
