Environs Rewarded

Around 40 students from Environs, the environment club of CHSE, were given certificates today for their participation and hard work in the mapping of vegetation inside Sultan’s Park and the official launching of International Year of Biodiversity in the Maldives.

At a small ceremony held this afternoon at the Ministry of Housing, Transport and Environment, the certificates were handed to the students by Minister Mr. Mohamed Aslam and Deputy Minister Dr. Mohamed Shareef.

During the ceremony the minister inquired about the activities carried about by the Environs and their future plans, and also advised the students about carrying out activities which create some sort of impact rather than having one-off events.

The minister also highlighted the importance of students, schools and NGOs taking leadership in environmental activities rather than the ministry or the government taking charge of such activities all the time.

Environs was formed in the year 2002, and has since won a Fehi Faiy (Green Leaf) Award (in 2008).

For the official launching of the International Year of Biodiversity in the Maldives (on 18th February 2010), the Environs (with help from the Environment Department and Engineering Section of MHTE, the EPA and Min. of Agriculture) had created a map of the plants and trees inside the Sultan’s Park, which showed the locations and names of the plants in the park.

Also for that day, special information boards were prepared and placed near all the plants with information about those plants. The Environs also played a major role in the launching day event by giving information about the plants to all the students who visited the park that day.
