Understanding our common home

Lonavla, India

The Don Bosco Green Alliance conducted a session on 'Understanding our common home' for the students of Don Bosco Lonavala. The students learnt about the ecological crisis, the changes in the Earth's climate and its effects. They then set out to appreciate and explore the local biodiversity. The students came across umpteen birds, discussed the uses of medical plants, spotted an ant hill and listed the local plant and tree species with their common and scientific names.
