“Conservation is a state of harmony between men and land.”-Aldo Leopold
St Anne’s First Grade College for Women focuses on engendering a culture of conservation into the minds of students. As an outcome of this thought process, the college instituted the Eco-club known as ‘ANNITES: THE GREEN WARRIORS’.The club plays an important role in creating environmental awareness amongst the students and performs activities to conserve and protect the environment, like planting trees, organizing poster competitions, initiating waste management techniques on campus, creating awareness on practices that have harmful effects on our environment. The Club promotes the participation of students in activities that promote environmental protection and conservation and thereby aiding to sustainable development.
Green Warrior club can thus help to extend boundaries and scope of the formal educational system encouraging creativity, and improving students for constructive action in order to protect the environment. It helps build attitudes to help individuals and social groups acquire a set of values and feelings of concern for environment and the motivation for actively participating in environmental improvement and protection. It also teaches skills to help individuals and social groups to identify and solve environmental problems and offer solutions to protect and conserve our nature and environment in the best way possible.
