Aim and Objective
The objective of the campaign was to create awareness among the students and the general public regarding the importance of the environment.
The environmental awareness campaign is really important because it is a great investment for the environment and the future. In this campaign, the aim was to search the effect of environmental education practices on students’ environmental outlook. If the numbers of environmental education practices are increased and done with more students for a longer period of time, the findings will be more comprehensive.
