Fr. Biju Michael SDB, Regional Councillor for South Asia inaugurated the action plan for greening Dimapur province by the promulgation of Don Bosco Green Protocol at 10.30 am on Sunday 16 February 2022 at a green ceremony at the Provincial House Dimapur. The inauguration comes ahead of his extraordinary visitation of the province.
Fr. Regional released the GREEN PROTOCOL at a colourful ceremony attended by Fr. Jose Kuruvachira SDB, Some Provincial council members and the junior priests and Brothers of the province. Those on the stage wore the prototype of the green T-Shirts that the students of our schools and colleges hope to wear, to spread the green message “Be Clean, Be Green, Be Happy and be Kind to everything that lives”. The Regional also released the Lessons on Green (LOG) series on the expected outcome of the Green Policy as well as the 17 Sustainable Development goals (SDG). He lauded the efforts that Fr. Andrew Xavier and the commission is making to carry forward this Green Dream and for giving the mantra of turning “ordinary into extraordinary” by habit formation at an early age.
The Green Protocol has 12 chapters beginning with A Green spiritual movement, preserving and conserving our common Home, strategies to attain green identity, green auditing, waste management and ending Institutional and Personal Targets in a span of 10 years.
