World Environment Day – Merchiston International School, Shenzhen

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.

昨天是第48个世界环境日,主题是“对抗空气污染”。杭州作为主办城市,将会推行包括扩建地铁、降低碳排放在内的一系列举措以减轻空气污染。

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.

世界环境日是每个人的节日,无论你是一个学生、老师还是家庭中的一员,每个人都有责任以实际行动来支持环境日。

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.

身为一间国际学校,MIS当然也应当承担起环保重任。在我们学校,有由中学生组成的生态委员会,有由小学生组成的环保小战士,他们都致力于校园环境保护。

We have taken some measures in the hope of doing our best to protect the earth.

我们采取了一些措施,希望能为保护地球尽一份心力。

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.

我们在3月举行了一场气候游行,很好地践行了本次环境日的主题。这也是生态委员会为提升学生对全球变暖的关注而进行的一次精彩尝试。

Through this activity, the students can gain a deeper understanding of the harm of global warming.

学生们也在本次气候游行中,加深了对全球变暖问题的理解。

We help students grow vegetables in our organic garden. After harvesting, the students will sell them to parents in our eco-farm shop.

我们还协助学生在校内有机蔬果园种植蔬菜。收成后,学生们还会把蔬菜进行义卖。

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.

为了减少使用塑料制品,我们鼓励学生们自带水杯。我们甚至计划下半年设计MIS专属的棉质环保袋。

Our students have made recycling bins themselves, and organised the recycling of used books, encouraging us to save energy.

我们的学生们亲手制作了回收箱,并且号召大家节约能源,还会组织回收旧书。

MIS is devoted to becoming a “Green School”. We will keep promoting activities in the hope of being a model school.

MIS以成为绿色校园为目标而努力。我们将持续推行相关环保活动,期待能成为典范。
