On June 5th, the world celebrated World Environment Day, prompting our 19th session to focus on the significance of environmental care. The session aimed to instil a sense of responsibility for our environment among participants.

Session Highlights:

The importance of maintaining a clean environment was emphasized during the session. The message was shared with both young and old participants, urging individuals and organizations to take care of our planet to prevent man-made disasters.

The session commenced with a prayer, followed by a discussion on the importance of proper waste disposal. Participants were encouraged not to litter, as non-biodegradable waste can end up in water bodies and cause harm.

Disposable gloves and rubbish bags were distributed to all participants for the clean-up exercise. The theme of this year’s World Environment Day was “Solutions to Plastic Pollution” under the campaign #beatplasticpollution.

Participants, some wearing custom T-shirts, gathered, and each team was assigned a marshal wearing a reflective jacket to supervise the clean-up. The clean-up started at the Itsekiri NextGen hall, where participants tidied up before moving on to clean parts of the Pessu community. The route covered James Street, down Market Road, and then back to the hall.

The exercise was well-coordinated, with a community civil defence team assisting in managing traffic and volunteers. A rubbish cart followed the teams to collect the gathered waste throughout the exercise.
