‘Engaging students, ushering in sustainability and promoting change’ - a new Green Campus Initiative of Amrita University was launched by chairperson of the Inter-Governmental Panel for Climate Change Rajendra K Pachauri in New Delhi on Thursday.
Hundreds of students across the nation witnessed the event online via Amrita University’s A-VIEW, a video conferencing platform. Pachauri lauded the initiative, calling for all like-minded institutions to join hands and march forward towards sustainability.
University associate dean Balakrishnan Shankar said that the Green Campus Initiative will encourage students to contribute to greening efforts, both on their campuses and communities, through research and development, workshops, forums, online and offline collaborations and other activities.
The Green Campus Initiative from Amrita University is inspired by Mata Amritanandamayi, on whose 60th birthday celebrations in late September, workshops and forums for the Green Campus Initiative are being planned. More information is available from greencampuses.in, aview.in, and amrita.edu.
