In connection with the World Earth Day 2020, the Department of Physics of St. Albert’s College organized an awareness programme with two events, e-poster competitions, and poetry competitions. ‘Ecowarriors’ was the theme given to both the events. This event is a chance for the participants to express themselves and forget the stress of the COVID-19 lockdown. The three categories are under the age below 15 category, age 15-25 category, and above the age 25 category. The posters and poetry were accepted until 27 April 2020. This lockdown and the corresponding news that the pollution levels and the ozone layer damage have reduced significantly is a matter for contemplation, which shows how the earth heals itself in the absence of humans. This COVID-19 pandemic is a clarion call to the humans to stop the continuous exploitation and violence inflicted on the Earth and to be greener in our actions for a future free of crises like these.
