Why is this called Green and Blue University?
Everywhere we look there is life. Life is in every crashing wave of water. It is in every plant, always busy producing oxygen. It is in every animal that is looking for food, in every human being moving through all of life’s situations. And if we step out a bit, say into space, we will see this as a Green and Blue Planet that is home to all of us.
Earth’s green and blue environment supports our life, our health, our growth and progress. And, Green and Blue University is an expression of gratitude to this Planet.
