He informed that the Forest and Environment department is implementing nature-based solutions to combat the environmental problems faced due to human activity.

“One way of tackling climate change is to go to the young population, to our youth, to our school children…In Meghalaya presently, we have something called environmental sciences, but not that, it’s redundant, but today climate change is far more overarching than environmental science. It is not just far more overarching, It is also extremely relevant and important for our children to know…where this time and how things are moving, and how things will be in the future, and the power lies in them or rather with them,” Sangma said.

During the programme, the Chief Minister along with the other dignitaries launched the Forest Management Plans.

The Environment Day theme song 2022 and the NRM mascot were also unveiled by the Chief Minister during the function in addition to the online ‘Community Nursery Information System’. He also distributed the State NRM awards to the different village NRM committees.

After the programme, the Chief Minister also interacted with students on his visit to the different stalls and exhibitions set up by eco clubs from various city-based schools.
