Motive: ‘Clean & Green Campus of Women’s College’
In the year 2015, the Women’s College of Arts and Commerce in New Nandanwan, Nagpur, established an Environment cell. The goal of the club is to instill ideals that will help to preserve the planet’s delicate nature. As each of us acknowledged our duty in maintaining our precious planet and eco-system, there was an urgent need for an association in the college called “Environment cell.” We knew we were gradually harming our environment. We are destroying the natural beauty of our surroundings without even thinking about it. Pollution causes the atmosphere to change in a negative way. This occurrence is the result of man’s actions, not natural causes. The availability of clean air and water has dwindled. It’s no surprise that people are afflicted with new and odd diseases that defy even the most advanced medical technology. This problem should be handled with care, despite the fact that it is a Herculean undertaking. Men must be made aware of the seriousness of the problem if they are to live a happy and peaceful life. Under the skilled direction of Dr. N. R. Dixit, Principal of the institution, some of the nature-loving members of the staff established the Environment cell, giving us a humble start to this Herculean endeavour.
Students in UG courses must complete coursework in environmental sciences in order to receive a UG degree. They must also participate in this contest and submit a project report. Lectures on environmental subjects are given, followed by a field trip to a local location and the submission of a project report on the topic of their choice.
The objective of the cell:
- Promote the information, skills, and values necessary for environmental preservation and sustainable living.
- Involve students in initiatives that actively involve them in learning both in and out of the classroom.
- Make an effort to make the environment cleaner and greener.
- Keep the campus clean.
- Organizing popular lecture series by subject specialists on various environmental challenges.
- Field trips to learn about the region’s flora and the need of environmental preservation.
