“By planting at least one tree and cultivating it to grow, you will contribute your bit to prevent environmental degradation,” he said.

Stating that the Wildlife Conservation Fund proposes to enter into a partnership with the Amar Singh College to make it a Green Campus, he said the College has the potential to lead in promoting environmental consciousness.

“We need social structures to prevent the environment from plunder and promote conservation of the ecosystem of water, soil, wetlands and forests, and it all has to begin from educational institutions,” he said.

Noting that ancient societal wisdom helps in safeguarding natural resources and encourages living in harmony with Nature, he exhorted upon the students to remain open to learning that ancient wisdom.

As per the statement, in the welcome address, principal AS college, Prof Bashir Ahmad Rather said protection of the environment is part of the curriculum of the colleges, which has made it imperative for students to be part of campaigns for creating an environment-sensitive society.

Terming the orientation programme an effort towards making students at the campus resourceful enough to be part of larger goals of protection of environment, he asked the resource person to consider ASC in his future campaigns and action programmes. (KNS)
