You Have to Be Carefully Taught

Anantara Seminyak Resort Teaches Bali School Children the Importance of Being Clean and Green

(5/4/2012) The Anantara Seminyak Resort and Spa in Bali joined more than one billion people worldwide in marking Earth Day on April 22, 2012.

The boutique hotel on Seminyak Beach set aside two days to raise environmental consciousness and persuade community members to do more to clean local environments.

Anantara Seminyak’s environmental education day took place on the morning of Wednesday, April 18, 2012, at Seminyak State Primary School. Anantara associates visited the elementary school to teach lessons to the students on the importance of caring for nature.

Anantara’s Environmental Officer, I Wayan Sucitra, delivered a presentation to 60 students from grades 5 and 6 on the topics of cleanliness, rubbish and pollution. This was followed by a fun-filled environmental quiz with prizes, for the student.

As shown on Balidiscovery.com, at the end of the visit, Anantara preserved the moment with a photograph of the students and their teachers as a souvenir of their Earth Day experience.

Anantara Seminyak is also encouraging students to put what they had learned into practice by donating four garbage bins to the school.

Sucitra, commented: “Knowing, owning and living a commitment to preserve nature is everyone’s responsibility. By explaining this to the next generation at such an early age, they will realize how important it is to protect the earth from environmental problems, and therefore contribute to a greener, cleaner future”.

For Anantara Seminyak’s beach cleaning activity on Saturday, April 21, 2012, some 30 Anantara associates spent two hours combing 100 kilometers in Seminyak for rubbish. 55 students from Seminyak State Primary School joined the cleanup.
