M.P. Govt. Invites Participation in ‘ National Green Core ’ Competition
Environment Conservation is one of the most pressing issues of the 21st century. It is the high time when each and every section of the society needs to contribute towards conserving and reviving the sinking environmental conditions. The young generation of school-going children has a very important role to play in this mission. This is the young, dynamic and energetic generation that we need to be nurtured into environmentally sensitive and responsible citizens of tomorrow.
