“The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it” – Robert Swan
We live in a world where turning a blind eye to the air surrounding us is never an option. We are constantly reminded of our actions and their subsequent consequences on the planet. Yet many of us are in denial of the widening damages caused by us, and humanity is using the world’s resources faster than they can naturally recover. World Environment Day is here to kick you out of your comfort zone and push you to pause and reflect on what you have done so far.
On the eve of World Environment Day, the Department of Environmental Science is organising a webinar to discuss topics that need immediate response actions. Dr T V Sajeev, Senior Principal Scientist, Department of Forest Entomology, Kerala Forest Research Institute, will be delivering a talk on ‘Why did she stop going to school? The case of student roles in saving the planet’.
Date: June 04, 2022
Time: 3.00 pm to 4.00 pm IST
