BICYCLE RALLY ON POLLUTION CONTROL 2019

 

On the sidelines of the World Environment Day 2019 and to generate public awareness on the burning issue of pollution and its detrimental effects, Livingstone Foundation International organized a Bicycle Rally on Pollution Control under the theme of ‘Our Environment, Our Concern’ on 6th June 2019. The Bicycle Rally which included around 57 cyclists from Grades-VI to XII students of LFI, started from the School Main Gate at Thahekhu Block-5 and went up to City Tower Junction and Nyamo Lotha Road. It culminated at Dhobinala Junction.
The Bicycle Rally was flagged off by Mrs. Jatila Jamir, NPS, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Traffic), Zone-I, Dimapur. Speaking on the occasion, as the Special Guest, Mrs. Jatila Jamir was grateful to the school administration for organizing such a novel initiative in raising awareness and concern on environmental pollution among the public and students in particular. She was also optimistic about the future of bicycles playing a major role in boosting people’s health and in curbing pollution to a great extent. Many people from all walks of life appreciated the unique bicycle rally taken out by the LFI students.
The Chairman of Livingstone Foundation International, Dr. Andrew Ahoto highlighted the serious and detrimental effects of pollution which has resulted in global warming which in turn has resulted in climate change, degeneration of health and other such effects on a global scale. Citing examples of developed nations around the world, he said that a majority of people in such countries use bicycles on a regular basis thus helping in establishing a healthy environment, boosting physical health and conserving natural resources. He also mentioned that the world across has become aware of environmental degradation and have started using alternative hybrid battery operated vehicles like Tesla which in turn helps in lowering of global warming.
He also expressed his wish that more people including school and college students start using bicycles to commute as it would contribute in lowering the harmful effects of global warming due to vehicular pollution and also improving their overall health. However, he was wary of the traffic situation in India, especially in Nagaland, where majority of the people do not adhere to traffic rules and regulations thus endangering the lives of the public. Therefore he was of the opinion that the general public need to be disciplined while driving on the streets and follow the traffic rules strictly. He was optimistic that this bicycle rally would go a long way in inculcating a positive mindset among the general public towards the menace of environmental pollution and the physical and mental health benefits of people through cycling.
