Letter of Invitation

Dear Madam/Sir,

City Montessori School, Gomti Nagar Extension, Lucknow, India, extends greetings and best wishes.

The 7th International Environment Olympiad, 2023, has been enthusiastically announced by City Montessori School, Gomti Nagar Extension. We would appreciate your presence and contribution at the event. The IEO serves as a forum to instill and spread the firm conviction that Nature must be preserved and protected in order for the world to be prosperous and peaceful. It honors the symbiotic relationship between people and the natural world.

We are appreciative of the previous IEO participants for giving us the chance to develop a stimulus for the expression and successful implementation of our goal to protect the environment. Similar efforts would be made by the 7th IEO to instill values, ethics, and a passion for the preservation and guardianship of nature in young minds. It is past time for us to unite as a single entity in order to repay nature's benevolent embrace upon us all as the selfless and ever patient Mother Nature.

“She will change over time, but will we?"

Let's reaffirm this conviction together at the 7th IEO from 11th December to 14th December, 2023. We reassert that we are not separate from nature and extend an invitation to all of our future friendly schools to send a team of five members from the Junior Category (Classes 6 to 8) and five members from the Senior Category (Classes 9 to 12).

We extend a special invitation to the participating school's principal, asking to attend as our Guest of Honour. Kindly send participation confirmation by 30th September and the event registration, duly signed and stamped by the School authorities by 7th October, 2023.

“In a tree there is a spirit of life, a spirit of growth and a spirit of holding up.”

All good people and nations want to save the environment but the task seems so enormous, they wonder what to do and whether anything they may do individually will be effective.

This confusion leads to a paralysis of will to act, especially since action requires sacrifice of consumption...
