The Nature Club, NSS, and Personal and Administration Department of Bhaikaka University celebrated World Environment Day on June 5 by organising various activities. It was an effort to join the global campaign and raise awareness about the importance of preserving the environment and minimising the impact of human activities.
The global theme for World Environment Day is 'Ecosystem Restoration' under the campaign #BeatPlasticPollution, emphasising the need to restore forests, wildlife, rivers, and oceans for a sustainable and livable planet.
The students of the Institute of Nursing Sciences and KM Patel Institute of Physiotherapy College of Bhaikaka University and management staff actively participated in the day's activities and collected 40 bags of plastic bottles and plastic from the 100-acre areas of the university. Dr. Utpala Kharod (Provost, Bhaikaka University), Dr. Jyoti Tiwari (Academic Controller, Bhaikaka University), Shri Shailesh Panchal (Principal, Institute of Nursing Sciences), NSS volunteers, and students planted seeds of different trees around the university campus.
To further provide knowledge to the students on "Climate Change, Mitigation, and the Current Situation", Dr. Vibha Vaishnav (Director, Community Science Centre, Anand District) was invited to deliver a lecture on the subject.
"The warming effect on our climate is caused by long-lived greenhouse gases, which rose by nearly 50% between 1990 and 2021. A carbon footprint is the total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions caused directly and indirectly by an individual, organisation, event, or product." It is calculated by summing the emissions resulting from every stage of a product's or service’s lifetime. Greenhouse gas emissions vary among individuals depending on a person's location, habits, and personal choices", she said.
