New Delhi, 05th June 2020- This World Environment day, Global Indian International School has announced the launch of its digital campaign “LetsUnlockNature”. The campaign, driven with a strong social message of conservation of environment, for a better world post the pandemic, has been released across all social media channels of GIIS including Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. The campaign is already being lauded by Dr. Mahesh Sharma, Member of Parliament, Gautam Buddha Nagar, UP and Former Minister (GOI) of State for Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, along with Dr. Biswajit Saha, Director-CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education).

The campaign comprises of a short yet impactful video of students, and the leadership team of GIIS schools across 5 cities in India, who virtually came together to encourage everyone to take small steps at an individual level that can create a larger impact and help in making the world a better place. This video will soon be followed by another video from GIIS students undertaking various other initiatives, like making of bird houses, planting of trees and installing self-watering systems for plants at home along with a pollution catching system that can go a long way in building a sustainable environment.

Commenting on this initiative and the campaign, Mr. Rajiv Bansal, Director-Operations, GIIS India said, “We, at GIIS, believe in the holistic development of students. Our aim is not only to provide academic excellence but also to make them responsible citizens and agents of change.  Our “LetsUnlockNature campaign summarises one of the many initiatives undertaken by GIIS to make students socially responsible. We aim to continue with this pedagogy where the environment is learning-centric and students learn to solve real-world problems from early childhood. While schools continue to remain shut amidst the Covid-19 scare, we as an educational institution aim towards providing a seamless learning experience to ensure the holistic development of all our students in this time of crisis.”

Prior to the lockdown, schools were only able to mostly sensitize students about social issues. However, since the lockdown has forced students and parents to be together in their homes at all times, the campaign of GIIS is set to create a much larger impact. With the noble thought of how charity begins at home, students of GIIS share that each one of us need to take the initiatve of creating a positive impact on the environment.

Important Announcement – EasyShiksha has now started Online Internship Program “Ab India Sikhega Ghar Se” during this lockdown.

Extending his heartiest congratulations on this initiative to entire GIIS family, Dr. Mahesh Sharma, Member of Parliament, Gautam Buddha Nagar (U.P) and Former Minister (GOI) of State for Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change said, “Global Indian International School’s initiative to create awareness about the environment amongst its students from early childhood is credit worthy. Students are leaders of tomorrow and it is imperative that schools inculcate the values of sustainable living from early childhood. The pandemic is an unprecedented health emergency that the world is grappling with, but it has taught us an important lesson of conserving the environment and making the world a better place to live in.”

Applauding GIIS’s awareness campaign, Dr. Biswajit Saha, Director- Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) said, “The #LetsUnlockNature Campaign of Global Indian International School strikes the right chord with the audience as students aim to create awareness about the Environment.  The Covid-19 pandemic has made us all rethink about how we took nature for granted all these years. It is the responsibility of schools to inculcate a habit amongst students to care for the environment from a very young age. With the lockdown in force, this campaign creates awareness amongst students and parents, therefore creating a much larger impact on society. I want to congratulate GIIS for undertaking initiatives that not only focus on academic excellence but also help in creating responsible citizens of tomorrow.”

A number of activities such as slogan writing, planting, writing poems, poster making to raise awareness on environmental issues among children, teachers & their families were undertaken on World Environment Day.

Known for creating and nurturing leaders of tomorrow, Global Indian International School has been undertaking various such initiatives throughout the year including those on Earth Day that contribute towards creating more aware and responsible citizens of the country.
