India’s Minister for Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Dr. Harsh Vardhan, has appealed to the teaching community to join the “Green Good Deeds” campaign.
It is launched by the Ministry to sensitise the people and students, in particular, about climate change and global warming.
Addressing about 700 principals of all government schools from North Delhi Municipal Corporation, the Minister said that environment is a matter of global concern, as never before.
“The whole world is concerned about the dangers of global warming and climate change,” Dr. Harsh Vardhan said.
He reminded the teachers of their “Green Social Responsibility” (GSR), similar to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
Referring to the crucial role played by “Polio Sainiks” from municipal corporation schools in the Pulse Polio campaign, he underlined the need for “Green Sainiks” to broad-base the “Green Good Deeds” movement and to take it down to the grassroots level successfully.
Dr. Harsh Vardhan said that it is not impossible to restore our clean and green environment. “It is not merely a technical issue, but a moral responsibility ‘to restore and return the clean and green environment to the next generation,” he stated.

With this objective in mind, the Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change has launched a people-oriented campaign named “Green Good Deeds.” He said that the plan is to expand it with the involvement of teachers, students, and other voluntary organizations.
A mobile application – ‘Dr Harsh Vardhan’ will inform people across India about the campaign.
