Learner fighting for environment

A15-year-old learner from Excelsior High School in Belhar has established an environmental development plan in order to protect the environment of Belhar and surrounding areas.

Miguel Beneke says his first order of business will be protecting the environment by petitioning against plastic, because plastic is a harmful product.

“Industries should use paper or cloth bags which are reusable and it is not that harmful to the environment. We will focus on the planting of more trees in the community. We will also grow a community garden and host more clean-ups in the community. It is also important to constantly remind people to conserve water and recycle products,” says Beneke.

He believes that if everyone works together the environment can be saved.

“Every society is formed by people from different social, religious and cultural backgrounds, classes, age groups and values that they uphold. Every individual plays a role in society, which bears certain repercussions in the immediate present, as well as in the coming future. And it is the responsibility of each citizen of our country to work towards strengthening the base of our society. Every society is like a bundle of flowers where the beauty of each flower is important to be able to make the entire bouquet of flowers look brilliant. The youth are like flowers and form an intricate part of any society and they have an important role to play. Any society is incomplete without the participation of young blood. In order to make a society progressive and dynamic, young people should be made an essential part of it,” says Beneke.

Beneke, who is in Grade 10, is a go-getter. He is the junior police commissioner of Belhar and he volunteered at the youth development league.
