Environment Day for Saint Paul Institute (SPI)
May 3, 2022
Around 100 SPI's students and staff from SPI attended the lecture on Environmental Education on 3rd May 2022 at Saint Paul Institute. The event was a meaningful and good memory for all participants with lecture about environment from Mr. Cesar Guevara, professor of biologist at AUPP . He comes from El Salvador, Central America, and then all participants plant trees together.
Environmental education plays a strategic role in the global education system and inside Saint Paul Institute-SPI as well. SPI conducts this event with a purpose to make all students remember that environment day is a time to remind you as good citizens to live in a good environment. Most people have their own perspective with a vision to change the world but please remember that we start to change ourselves individually; first, we have to discipline ourselves in our personal life in a good environment, at home, at school, at university, and in your community. For example, you want to change the world, but you never make up your bed when you wake up every morning. So, how can you change the world with bad behavior and attitude and no sign of living in a good environment at home? Environmental education is a part of the leading competence of SPI's students in relation to the world around you and is a part of our ability to live in harmony with nature and culture, with society.
Of course, Saint Paul Institute is one of our communities; we live together, we study together, and we have to make our community clean and good environment together. Not just for now, but for your future, please be a part of environmental protection and make your place, community and our country clean. Furthermore, please remember that this academic year H. E Bishop Olivier, Apostolic Vicar of Phnom Penh, announced as Green year for all Catholic Education Institute which is a sign of hope and bring back actual action with face to face communication, so, our SPI have to gain this hope through our action and commitment (Director Phon Sophal said during opening speech).
