Human existence is quite impossible without the presence of a healthy ecosystem. Our environment comprises all living and non-living components and their interactions within a natural habitat.
Environmental conservation has become one of the core issues that need to be addressed to battle climate change and global warming. Sustainable development is the need of the hour that can save mother earth from the repercussions of industrialization. In this blog, we will aim to elaborate upon environmental conservation, its needs and ways of conserving the environment.
NSS Wing of Amritsar Group of Colleges, Amritsar in collaboration with Hariawal Punjab NGO organized a seminar on the protection of environment by means of tree Plantation, conservation of Freshwater and Fresh Air on 20th September 2022 in Seminar Hall, AGC. Mr. Rakesh Jain, Akhil Bhartiya Seh- Pramukh, Paryavaran Gatividhi was the Chief Guest of the day. He focused on Water Conservation, Plant Conservation and avoidance of Polythene and plastic use.
Mr. Paramvir Anand, Guest of Honor and Mr. Munish Kumar, District Convener also spoke on the occasion. They said,”Various core environmental issues are taking a heavy toll on human lives. Ranging from overpopulation, hydrological issues, ozone depletion, and global warming to deforestation, desertification and pollution, all these issues pose a severe threat to the existence of humankind. Unless environmental conservation is becoming an effective mass movement, it is futile to expect positive growth especially in the age of digital media which holds the potential to bring a revolution to save our planet from destruction.”
Dr. Rajneesh Arora, Managing Director, AGC, Amritsar appreciated the efforts of Hariawal Punjab towards protection of environment.
Dr. V K Banga, Principal, AGC highlighted that AGC, Amritsar is already contributing in this direction and the institute is already working with the motto, “ONE STUDENT ONE TREE” for the last many years.
