Vineville pupils proffer solution to climate change issues
As stakeholders and people of the world continue to debate the change in climate, its consequences on the inhabitants of the earth and the way forward, some children have also been contributing their quota to solving the problem in their own little way.
In doing this, some schools have encouraged their pupils to take certain measures that would help in preventing further damage to the environment.
Some of these actions include embarking on enlightenment campaigns on the need to embrace the idea of recycling, as well as the need to reduce use of plastic and nylons. They canvass the better option of using paper and such other biodegradable items.
Recently, it was the turn of students of Vineville Academy, Alaka Estate in Surulere, Lagos to add their own perspective to the issue.
During their Science Day, which held in the school premises last Friday, the students presented the outcome of some experiments they undertook, which were aimed at explaining some climate issues and how they can be effectively tackled. These problems, they said, are some of the contributory factors to the worsening condition of the earth, which often induce climate change.
Making their presentations with different themes, which include what trigger volcanic eruptions and how to prevent such, as well as causes responsible for the rising level of seas and oceans globally, the children made a case for the need to reduce the amount of pollutants in the air and the environment generally.
And although it is not possible to bring about a drastic change overnight, they noted that every little step taken in this direction would make a significant impact on the overall goal.
To make the exercise real and worthy, the students backed their experiments with illustrations and works that vividly portrayed their submissions and positions.
