BSP Go Green ambassador Rachel James visited Bava International School to gift and reward the school with Go Green water filters and gifts to inspire educate and encourage the school children to continue their efforts in helping to keep the environment clean and healthy.
Miss James told the students that the day was an important Go Green calendar date, "World Ocean Day" and she tested the school children on their aptitude and knowledge of the marine environment, mangroves, coral reefs and main threats.
Miss James also discussed with the children, their thoughts and knowledge on what it means to promote a Green Economy. For the entire month of June, Bava International School is learning about the environment.
She talked about sustainable business industries like agriculture and sustainable energy forms; solar power, hydro power and thermal power and how this helped promote a Green Economy in PNG.
Bava International School like other schools around country are undertaking activities in line with World Environment Day marked earlier this week.
Miss James remarked that she was surprised at how eager and quick to answer all her questions.
"It's just fabulous to hear and see just how knowledgeable these juniors at Bava International School were on climate change issues such as sea level rise, environmental pollution threats to marine life and Go Green messages," she said.
Go Green is an ongoing campaign to raise awareness and educate on ways we can help the environment, particularly children who are the future.
