Green Week

Posted on September 8, 2021

The current problem regarding pollution and climate change and it’s affect on the environment is a topic which has increased the concern of citizens.

Terms such as Sustainable Development, (present development that does not compromise the capacities of the future to satisfy their needs), are continuously heard in the media and governments around the world to try to establish measures to carry it out.

As it is a current issue and that concerns us all, it is important that it is explained and that it reaches the entire population in an accessible way, which is why environmental awareness campaigns are created. Education is essential to achieve the proposed objectives and therefore a discipline arises that is Environmental Education.

Therefore, at CCL we have carried out “Green Week” with the support of collaborators and the general public, focused on the family environment whose objectives are:

  • Acquire new knowledge to help foster interest in the environment.
  • Attitude and will to conserve our habitat.
  • Participate and develop a sense of responsibility in caring for our environment.
  • Promote education from home and as early as possible from childhood
  • Identify and solve environmental problems

It is also essential that everyone is aware of the environment and sustainable development in order to avoid compromising natural resources in the long term.
