Erik addressed the Students and told them that damage has been done to a large extent to the environment, animals and birds besides human beings due to the littering of garbage and plastic on the river banks and how pollution and damage to environment could be reduced to a large extent. On this occasion, the Principal of Children Welfare Centre Mr Ajay Kaul, the School’s executive Chairman Mr Prashant Kashid, Film & TV Actor Naresh Suri and Versova Resident volunteers Mr Afroz Shah also added grandeur and dignity to the event with their august presence and also expressed their viewpoints.
Mr Ajay Kaul and Mr Prashant Kashid said that Mr Erik Solheim was trying his level best to save the environment from the encroachment of plastic and littering and added that just a day before he had cleaned the beach with his Swachchata Campaign and hence we have organized this seminar, through which today’s youth will come to know more about how to prevent the environment from choking with plastic and littering and be free. Mr Erik Solheim also added that children of the school as well as the college are the future of every country and if they are taught properly about the harmful effects of littering and pollution on our environment then the future will see less of hassles as far as pollution and environment are concerned and hence I decide to attend this seminar.———–Sanjay Sharma Raj (P.R.O.)
