‘My Green Homeland’ Activity

Green Living association provides inclusive (value based) education to students (and their families), which makes the school’s curriculum comprehensive in developing growing students into well acquainted, responsible and environment friendly personalities. We have announced this year’s flagship activity, ‘My Green Homeland’, with its focus to teach responsible and environment friendly living and therefore to bring green developments into participants lives. Such inclusive (value-based) education can enable our society to develop our homeland Pakistan into one of the modern and greener countries in the world.

The ‘My Green Homeland’ activity is aligned with the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration (2021-2030). Being part of Green Living initiatives worldwide and partnering with the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and Cleanup the World, Green Living Association is efficiently executing this green initiative in Pakistan.

To make the activity even more fascinating, we have announced attractive prizes and awards for participants which include 7 Cash Prizes for Crown Green Ambassadors, National & Town Winners Prizes, Gold & Silver Medals, Green Ambassadors’ Insignias and precious Certificate of Admiration for every Green Ambassador (the participant student).

The impact of ‘My Green Homeland’ on participating families is, however, much greater than just winning an award. The real reward is bringing green developments into our lives in making our homes, campuses and societies eco-friendly to make our entire homeland greener and cleaner.

In view of the exclusive benefits of ‘My Green Homeland’ for the participants, for school administration, the environment and our entire homeland, every campus and school should join the activityPer student participation fee is just Rs. 550/- Besides winning valuable prizes, this would be your precious contribution to building our nation as a responsible, modern and environmentally friendly society

Why this approach is really significant

Pakistan is among the top ten countries in the world most at risk of climate change impacts. Common people are generally less aware of the effects of climate change, howeverthe increasing intensity of floods, heavy and premature monsoon rains, heat waves, urban flooding and sea storms in recent years have alarmed all Pakistanis about these increasing impacts. To boldly and appropriately address the climate impact, all Pakistanis must not only be aware of what is happening, but also contribute their part as responsible citizens in transforming our homeland, Pakistan, into a modern, greener and safer country.

Previously, our education system focused on a narrow range of children’s cognitive development, with an emphasis on imparting content knowledge, often to be memorized and repeated as it was received. Lessons in math, science and reading – and tests in those skills – dominated the curriculum.

Recently, we experienced a development in our education system, bringing an international curriculum and examination system that is connected across the world with its global recognition. The Cambridge based curriculum is far-reaching as it is prepared as per the needs of modern times by international educationists in order to enhance students’ hidden abilities. However, only the curricular discipline does not offer the development of an integral personality.

Children need to be exposed to more inclusive education in order to grow and learn in their relationships, identity, emotional understanding and overall well-being. After all, children are multidimensional “whole” beings whose development is complex and just focusing on developing them as more skilled personalities to earn maximum capital selfishly undermines their hidden potential to become more interactive, responsible and joyful personalities.

Inclusive (value based) education should base on a blend of curricular and extracurricular wisdom that nurtures a human ideal of enrichment in our material lives so that we can have successful and good lives, which must also contribute to the core values that build the kinds of communities that benefit us all. These values are social care, responsibility and mutual growth achieved through responsible and green living.

Inclusive education plays a very important role in all aspects of our lives. A person who understands the practical applicability of education is successful in her/his life. Being a student, just shredding textual things and getting good grades is not important. The important thing is to understand how this will make our life beautiful for us and for everyone around us. That’s why an educated mind and a good heart combine to create revolutionary changes in society.

Green Living Association has announced 2023’s highly innovative and result-oriented activity My Green Homeland‘, with the aim of motivating participants to contribute their part to bring about environment-friendly developments in our respective communities, making our entire homeland sustainable. This is an excellent opportunity for students and their families to get involved in the process of achieving inclusive education as an alternative to the negative and harmful activities present in society.

We are proud of the partnership of our Green Partner Schools and their campuses and look forward to keeping it alive by bringing inclusive education to our society. Let’s join hands together in making our homeland Pakistan a successful, developed and environment friendly country.
