Save the very ground we stand on!

Apeejay Panchsheel Park students join hands with the Save Soil campaign organised by the Isha Foundation to spread the word for soil conservation



 “Soil is the only magic material that turns death into life.”


Soil is the foundation for everything that exists on Earth. It is only fitting that we start realising the importance of the very ground we stand on. The Save Soil campaign is a global movement launched by Indian Yoga Guru and head of the Isha Foundation, Shri Sadhguru. The campaign seeks to address the rampant global soil crisis by bringing people together from around the world to stand up for soil health. The campaign also urges and supports the leaders of all the respective nations to institute national policies and take action towards increasing the organic content in cultivable soil.

In order to create awareness among the youth who are the future leaders of this nation, the Save Soil Movement collaborated with CBSE (Central Board for Secondary Education). The aim is to develop sensitivity amongst students towards soil conservation. In sync with the aforementioned thought, the CBSE Awareness Campaign for soil conservation was recently conducted at Apeejay School, Panchsheel Park.

A short video tracing the origin of the movement, its struggles and successes was screened in the school. The video threw light on some important facts about soil and water depletion as well as helped sensitise students towards the issue at hand.

After watching the video, all students wrote letters, poems, slogans and drew posters in support of the movement. More than 250 entries were collected among the submissions. Students across classes 6 to 12 willingly participated in the cause. The activity instantly struck a chord with the students as all the students vowed to support the movement and spread the word for soil and water conservation.

“Save soil is a global movement launched by Sadhguru, to address the soil crisis and increase the organic content in the soil; thus making it healthy.”
