Earth Day Celebration
22nd April 2022
On 22nd April, to mark the Earth Day celebrations, Institution's Innovation Council (MoE),Dronacharya Group of Institutions, Greater Noida organized a session with the objective “SAVE OUR ENVIRONMENT”. Faculty members, staff and students enthusiastically participated in the celebration.
The session was organized with the objective to motivate the young mind to protect the environment, act against climate change, emerging green technologies and innovative thinking that can restore the world’s ecosystem.
Prof. (Dr.) K.K. Saini (Director, DGI) delivered a motivational speech in which he said urgent action is essential to save our environment and one must seize the unprecedented opportunities to change the course of history. Today’s version of industrialization is the biggest source of land conversion, drives deforestation that worsens climate.
Secondly he discussed, overfishing and poor fisheries management is not only devastating to the fish species being pushed to the brink of collapse. It endangers food webs and ocean ecosystems by disrupting the balance of all sea life so to fix it one should refine fishing methods to only take what the fish populations can tolerate now, so our oceans can be more abundant and healthier in the future.
Last but not the least he mentioned, climate change is the most serious threat our planet is facing today. We must reduce carbon emissions and to fix it we could shift 85% of the world’s energy supply to non-fossil fuel sources and invest in strategies like reforestation that capture carbon dioxide.
These words incorporated the seed of awareness in hearts and minds of students about mother earth’s health, reducing global warming on individual level, sustainable development etc.
In the end, student and college staff took pledge “The choices we make today will create the world of tomorrow. So, let’s pledge to do our part to leave it greener than we found it”.
A straightforward way to make world greener is to plant a tree on Earth Day.
