The Nigerian Conservation Foundation (NCF) is pleased to invite schools to participate in this year’s globally celebrated World Environment Day (WED).
WED is an environmental awareness programme aimed at promoting environmental education, ingenuity, teamwork and general environmental friendliness among children and youths. The theme for this year’s WED is Beat Plastic Pollution.
Plastic pollution involves the accumulation of plastic products in the environment that adversely affects wildlife, wildlife habitat, and humans; hence the theme urges all stakeholders – producers and consumers as well as policy makers to jointly explore sustainable alternatives and urgently reduce the production and excessive use of single-use plastics polluting our oceans, damaging marine life and threatening human health.
Your school can participate in one or all the categories. Kindly complete the form for the competition and return to us on or before Friday 5thth May, 2018. Participation forms submitted after this date will not be processed.
