Sustainable development that curbs pollution and thus prevents the extinction of species from the surface of the earth is the urgent need of the hour. The United Nations Assembly established World Environment Day in 1972 to fundamentally raise awareness among people about the importance of ecosystem preservation. Since then, World Environment Day is observed on June 5 annually with eco-sensitive themes to remind individuals and organisations about their duties and responsibilities towards the gift of nature.
This year’s theme: ‘Reimagine.Recreate.Restore.’ marks the beginning of the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration. The Department of Student Affairs, SRM University-AP is organizing a Quiz Programme for the students on June 5, 2021, at 7:00 pm to ensure commitment to the earth’s reviving mission, as a green and sustainable university.
“Nature is healing” is a misleading message that has been circulated in the digital world during these Covid-19 pandemic days when human activities are shut down around the world. It is not just a year or a decade since humans have started exploiting, looting, and destroying the wildlife, coral reefs, deserts, mountains and more. Let us be a generation that reimagines creative ways to restore our natural resources.
All are welcome!
