He stated, "The NCF Environmental Education program is designed to raise awareness, promote environmental stewardship, and encourage positive actions that contribute to sustainable natural and environmental resource management. The program aims to catch pupils and students at a young age when they are most receptive to learning and developing a sense of care for the environment."


Mr. Adeyemo emphasized the importance of environmental education in today's world, where environmental challenges such as climate change, deforestation, and habitat destruction are increasingly pressing.

He further explained, "Engaging young minds through interactive activities, field trips, and workshops, the School Conservation Club program provides a platform for students to understand the interdependence between humans and the natural world."

While encouraging other schools, organizations, and individuals to support the School Conservation Club program, he emphasized that collective action is crucial to addressing environmental challenges and preserving Nigeria's rich natural heritage.

“We will be in Moret Comprehensive College opposite Adamasigba Statium next week Thursday by the Special grace of God, he added.
