We are always looking for things to do for ourselves, our friends, and our families. However, here, we are just talking about people we know. How would you feel doing something in the larger picture? For the bigger cause: our society? For even the country, maybe? Yeah… That feels good already, doesn’t it? So here we are, with a few suggestions for you, as to how you can make a contribution to society. So students contribution to the society is very important.
What? Is there a problem…? Oh! Do you say you’re still a student?
But you know what they say, age is just a number. If you have the drive and desire to contribute, there is nothing much that can stop you. All one needs to do is make a decision and look for ways you can do your bit. These suggestions are based on the fact that you are all students and still can make a difference in how things happen around you.
- 1. Be aware
Contribution does not have to mean to act, always. At times, keeping yourself with what is happening around you also means a lot. Also, keeping yourself updated about important things can help you act as a more responsible citizen.
- 2. Spread awareness about things that are bothersome
If you come to think of it, there are so many things people around you complain about. You know, stuff about the usual traffic jams, the unclean roads and colonies, the pollution and the rising prices of diminishing natural resources. But do they realize that they could be contributing to these problems too? Make an effort in that direction. You could create an event where your friends and you discuss the common issues at large. You could take the assistance of the internet for that too.
- 3. Promote a healthy environment
Living a healthy life feels good, does it not? Now imagine contributing to the betterment of your environment as a whole! Encouraging a healthy environment not only helps you function faster but also motivates you to do better in life. You could help improve your living environment by acting against agents that disrupt it. From pollution to civic problems to problems in your locality that trouble residents, you can do your bit to improve it all. This is also a way by which students can make contribution to the society.
- 4. Take part or start small activities or events that help others
Even while you are a student, you may help others by starting various kinds of small activities like book drives, tree plantation events, cleaning drives, and community service for aged people in your near your localities. In addition, you can volunteer to devote some time to places where your assistance is needed, like in old age homes, orphanages, or even be a part of service groups where community service is a practice.
