Q.1-5. An eco warrior is a person who engages in some sort of activity to save the ecology or environment. The word was coined in the 1990s by the British media. All over-the world there have been groups or people who sound the alarm bells when environment is struck indiscriminately. Eco warriors have a flag that is used internationally. It has a green background with red oval shape in the centre. In the middle of this are three yellow coloured sticks tied to form a tripod.

You too can be an eco warrior by adopting simple activities like bird watching or tree hugging. Gather your friends and form an Eco Warriors club. Get the exact reference of the flag from the internet and make flags or badges for everyone in the club.
Make sure everyone wears them to all meetings. Have a meeting once every two weeks. Keep a notebook and pen for taking notes and setting goals. Elect a leader for the Club.
To help you get started with your club activities, here’s a bit of history for inspiration. Our very own eco warriors came to light with the Chipko movement of the 1970s. It was a historic event that took place in present day Uttarakhand, to exercise the right over forests. The women farmers of village Reni, in Chamoli district hugged trees to protest against the deforestation of the Garhwali forests.
These days tree cutting is such a common sight - for road widening and building of flyovers and urban rail transport systems. If you are witnessing this in your area, meet your area’s welfare association and insist that the authorities plant an equal number of trees in the locality wherever possible to make up for the trees that have been cut. Take it upon yourself to see that these trees are watered regularly and nurtured well till they grow.
