← Social activities are defined as the recreational programs for the human resources .It is also defined as an activity considered appropriate on social occasions. Social activity has long been recognized as an essential component of healthy aging.

Some of the Types of social Activity:

□ Environmental Activities
□ Educational Activities
□ Blood Donation
□ Disaster Aid
□ Support Program
□ Distribution of study materials to poor students □ Help to poor patients

Social welfare activities are of many types .The most important and necessary need for our society is Environmental activities, Educational activities and Blood donation. Let us see them in detail and the solution for those problems.

Environmental Activities :

← Pollution Control :

✓ All pollution control activities ultimately aim at maintenance and restoration of the quality of the natural resources. Hence knowledge of the ambient quality of resources is a prerequisite for planning and execution of pollution control management strategies.

✓ Pollution is the introduction of contaminants into the natural environment that cause adverse change.[1] Pollution can take the form of chemical substances or energy, such as noise, heat or light. Pollutants, the components of pollution, can be either foreign substances/energies or naturally occurring contaminants.

✓ Forms of Pollution:
Air pollution, Noise pollution, Soil contamination,thermal pollution,water pollution.

← Tree Planting:

□ Tree planting is the process of transplanting tree seedlings, generally for forestry, land reclamation, or landscaping purposes. It differs from the transplantation of larger trees in arboriculture, and from the lower cost but slower and less reliable distribution of tree seeds.

USES OF TREES:

1. Trees Produce Oxygen[pic]
1. Trees Produce Oxygen
Let's face it; we could not exist as we do if there were no trees. A mature leafy tree produces as much oxygen in a season as 10 people inhale in a year. What many people don't realize is the forest also acts as a giant filter that cleans the air we breath. 2. Trees Clean the Soil

The term phytoremediation is a fancy word for the absorption of dangerous chemicals and other pollutants that have entered the soil. Trees can either store harmful pollutants or actually change the pollutant into less harmful forms. Trees filter sewage and farm chemicals, reduce the effects of animal wastes, clean roadside spills and clean water runoff into streams. 3. Trees Control Noise Pollution

Trees muffle urban noise almost as effectively as stone walls. Trees, planted at strategic points in a neighborhood or around your house, can abate major noises from freeways and ai

can be dramatically reduced by a forest or by planting trees. One Colorado blue spruce, either planted or growing wild, can intercept more than 1000 gallons of water annually when fully grown. Underground water-holding aquifers are recharged with this slowing down of water runoff. 5. Trees Are Carbon Sinks

To produce its food, a tree absorbs and locks away carbon dioxide in the wood, roots and leaves. Carbon dioxide is a global warming suspect. A forest is a carbon storage area or a "sink" that can lock up as much carbon as it produces. This locking-up process "stores" carbon as wood and not as an available "greenhouse" gas. 6. Trees Clean the Air

Trees help cleanse the air by intercepting airborne particles, reducing heat, and absorbing such pollutants as carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen...
