NDB partnered with the “Field Ornithology Group of Sri Lanka” to implement a sustainability awareness program for schools island wide.
This project under the theme “Leaders for Sustainability” aims to nurture and promote students to act as “Sustainability Leaders”, promoting the conservation of our environment and acting as “Change-agents” of society.
The project was launched in commemoration of Earth Day with the first batch of 20 students and 5 teachers from Kelaniya Gurukula MV.
The project included a 3 day field visit to the ‘Sinharaja World Heritage Center’ where the students were educated and undertook a series of activities including field work to understand the biodiversity, birds and the environment and how to conserve it.
Furthermore, in line with the Bank’s corporate social responsibility agenda, NDB pledged funds for the enablement of such programmes in a minimum of 18 such schools where at least six of the schools chosen will be out of Colombo, in areas subject to human – animal conflict.
