It was established by the Governing Council of the United Nations Development Programme in 1989. World Population Day aims to aware general masses of various population issues such as the importance of family planning, gender equality, poverty, human rights, etc.
The students of SHEAT PUBLIC SCHOOL, Varanasi observed World Population Day on 11th July with a Poster making and slogan writing competition. It is a day that is used to raise awareness about global population issues. The students put on their thoughts and presented their opinions through their artwork.
As Aristotle lined, “to bring any change we must train young minds.” SHEAT intends to get children to think about the problems facing the earth and our immediate environment. Students took participation in this one-day program and did their best to express their ideas through posters, creative writing, and slogans using words and colors carefully. They showed through their creation that if the world’s population grows at the same pace, this can create a serious imbalance on earth.
SHEAT Students also try to try to explain through their paintings that It is very important to take necessary steps to control the growing population to maintain the balance between population and natural resources as well as ecology. The competition was like an extravagance for the young painters and the spectators as well, as they used their brilliance of painting blended with the perceptions displayed on the painting sheet. All activities were a splendid show of SHEAT’s young and talented students.
