Young Naga Club Ungma celebrates World Environment Day and Jubilee

Young Naga Club, Ungma, Mokokchung District, marked World Environment Day 2024 with a series of eco-friendly initiatives as part of its Golden Jubilee celebrations.

The Club conducted a mass social work at Ungma Village, cleaned the Imkongmeren Sports Complex in Mokokchung, and planted 100 tree saplings around Ungma Village. These activities were undertaken under the theme “Land Restoration, Desertification, and Drought Resilience.”

The objective behind these initiatives is to promote sustainable traditional practices in modern living. The Nagas have a deep understanding of their local ecosystems and how to use resources responsibly, offering valuable lessons for today’s ecological crisis.

By starting at the grassroots level, the Club aims to plant fruit trees in and around Ungma Village, focusing on areas where they can be nurtured and cared for. This approach will not only contribute to environmental sustainability but also provide a source of nutrition for the local community.

The Club’s emphasis on reducing waste by reusing or repurposing items, composting food scraps, and avoiding unnecessary consumption is a crucial step towards mitigating the ecological crisis.

Furthermore, the Club is promoting the use of locally available materials for building, tools, and crafts. This approach reduces dependence on extractive industries and transportation, which can have a significant environmental impact. By adopting these practices, the Club is setting an example for environmentally conscious living and community-driven efforts to protect the environment.

The Club’s motto for its jubilee year is “To Renew, Recycle, Reuse,” reflecting its commitment to alleviating the ongoing ecological crisis. Notably, the Young Naga Club has not partnered with other organisations, communities, or experts for its programmes, relying on its self-governed structure. However, they do receive tree saplings from the Department of Agriculture, which are used purposefully.

Through these initiatives, the Young Naga Club, Ungma, is demonstrating its dedication to environmental sustainability and community development. By promoting sustainable practices and reducing waste, the Club is contributing to a healthier environment and a better future for generations to come.
