Shanil Fernando started this petition to Government of Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka which is closed to the equator suffers tremendously from Solar radiation. Pioneer in Highway Solarisation, Mr. K C Somaratne has written several articles and proved that there can be catastrophic devastation in our beautiful island if we do not take precautions fast. 

Though the Government has taken steps to grow 1 million trees, the people of this beautiful country have not been made aware of the dangers that are already hurting our nation. For example rainfall during tourist season can seriously affect the country's economy. Similarly there are the droughts in one part of our country while floods are seen in other parts of this small nation. The Government must take immediate steps to educate the people by way of advertisements, social media campaigns and also by introducing  a system in schools and universities where students must grow 10 plants in order to get through the Advanced Level or obtain a degree.

Free plants must be distributed to homes with the help of philanthropists and corporates who are willing to donate towards this worthy cause. There will be several donors in Sri Lanka as well as the diaspora who will donate generosly towards towards this project.

GOSL PLEASE TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION
