Save Earth campaign

SRN Adarsh College students organised the ‘Save Environment Save Earth’ campaign recently as a part of their National Service Scheme (NSS) activities. The students cleaned KS Narasimha Swamy Park, Katriguppe which was followed by an awareness speech on importance of environment by Mayor D Venkatesha Murthy, who was also the chief guest.

“It is through the younger generation that a green earth will be born. I am proud that my students are initiating such campaigns,” said President, Adarsh Group of Institutions, Premraj V Jain.

“People have to understand the current scenario. Everything around them is polluted. Now we are living in a condition where we need to pay and buy even drinking water. So it is our duty to take steps to make them aware about the seriousness of the issue,” said an active NSS volunteer of Adarsh. The NSS Unit has also succesfully conducted awareness programmes in the past.
