The advancing challenges of environmental harm, depleting resources and the effects of ‘climate change’ impelled us to expand our mission to include educating, activating and engaging our youth in sustainable living through the EDEX ‘Think Green’ campaign, EDEX Project Chairman Kamal Abeysinghe said.

“We believe that a disciplined approach is required in both the creation and the consumption of resources at individual as well as societal scale. EDEX Green Zone showcases some important global and local initiatives in this direction, he said.

There is a need to include sustainable living principles in the school curricula as early as possible, so that our youth can create a society which is sustainable when they grow up. This will help combat climate change, he said.

As a nation, a workforce with the correct educational skills will boost economic growth, competitiveness as well as its global stature whilst uplifting the living standards and quality of life of its people, he said.
