Seminar on ‘Environmental Protection’ inaugurated in Belgaum
Belgaum: The District Co-ordinator of Nehru Youth Centre, S.U. Jamadar, has called upon the youth to exhibit greater involvement in protecting depleting natural resources and intensify the campaign against environmental pollution.
He was addressing a seminar on “Environmental Protection” jointly organised by the Information Department and B.S.W. College, Belgaum, here on Friday.
He warned that continued lethargy and neglect of issues concerning environment and ecology would be disastrous to the mankind and wildlife.
The need of the hour was to save every drop of water and bring down levels of pollution of air, land and water so that life on earth was peaceful and harmonious.
Ecological imbalance was bound to result in conflicts in different forms and degrees and society should avoid such a situation.
Earlier in the day, students from various colleges in the city took out a “bicycle jatha” to create awareness on environmental protection among cross sections of people.
The jatha was formally inaugurated by Deputy Conservator of Forests Girish Hosur. Information Department Deputy Director Basawaraj Kambi and B.S.W. College Principal Surekha Patil were present.
