‘Protecting Our Planet Starts with You’ implements web-based educational projects for children to actively participate in protecting the environment. The awareness program influences school children through 17 interactive activities such as games, cartoons, quizzes, puzzles. etc. published on the “Save Earth” studio on the platform —Scratch.

While there are similar existing projects in Sri Lanka concerning the topic “Save Earth”, Sirimavo Bandaranaike Vidyalaya’s objective is to make the process more interactive and relatable since students are more likely to retain and follow such information.

Sirimavo Bandaranaike Vidyalaya utilises the Scratch online Community to share interactive media such as games, stories, and animations created with Scratch programming.
