No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible. 雪崩时，没有一片雪花是无辜的。
― Stanisław Jerzy Lec
Yesterday the 48th World Environment Day (WED) was held in Hangzhou, China, with the theme ─ “Beat Air Pollution”. The expansion of the MTR and the reduction of carbon emissions will be conducted by the government in order to reduce air pollution.
World Environment Day is the “people’s day” for doing something to take care of Mother Earth. No matter if you are a student, a teacher or a family member, everyone has the responsibility of taking action in support of this day.
As an international school, we also take responsibility for promoting the importance of environmental protection in support of this day. The Eco-Council organised by our Seniors and Eco-Warriors formed by our Juniors are both working on the environmental protection of the school.
We have taken some measures in the hope of doing our best to protect the earth.
MIS held a Climate March Day in March, which was good practice for the theme of WED 2019. This is also a meaningful attempt by the Eco-Council to raise the students’ awareness of global warming.
Through this activity, the students can gain a deeper understanding of the harm of global warming.
We help students grow vegetables in our organic garden. After harvesting, the students will sell them to parents in our eco-farm shop.
In order to avoid plastic containers, we encourage students to use their own cups. What’s more, we even plan to design our own cotton MIS reusable bags in the second half of the year.
Our students have made recycling bins themselves, and organised the recycling of used books, encouraging us to save energy.
MIS is devoted to becoming a “Green School”. We will keep promoting activities in the hope of being a model school.
