Caption submitted with photo: "World’s “SUSTAINABILITY” can surely be achieved only when all people around the globe start to change our outlook towards the real need of our mother nature. World’s progress must not tantamount to the growth of uncontrolled pollutants. If we do not cut down the problem of global pollution, sooner or later we'll all wake up living in a mountain of trash. Large scales of blue oceans and Green mountain cathedrals will both turn out into gray. Area for agriculture will be lessened because of this havoc. The only hope for sustainability depends on the mind of every Homo Sapiens living on this planet! Today is the right time to wake up and understand what the world is craving for. Save the world and everything will be recompensed. Don’t think about how far the North Pole is from the South Pole. Just think that these two far points are still connected and are still lying on one plane. Meaning, whatever you do today, everything affects not just you locally but it affects the world in unison. Teaching every child the values towards saving the planet and inculcating to them the essence of a sustainable future is the best way to fight against the poverty of the children and their future generations."

Caption submitted with photo: "Provision of clean running water is essential in maintaining sanitation around us and also a key component in environmental sustainability and climate action at large. When children are provided with clean water, they remain healthy and thus escape poverty in terms of diseases. This is especially essential during these times of the COVID-19 pandemic."
