Congratulating the students, DSEU vice-chancellor Professor Neharika Vohra applauded their efforts in showcasing their talent and initiating meaningful conversation on topics such as environment-friendly waste management specific to plastic waste, alternative sources of energy and India energy, new frontiers of green technology for climate action, amongst others.
“We are happy to see the effort that each and every student has put in the university prelims. We wish all the shortlisted students good luck for the regional rounds. It is key to remember the motive for these dialogues and to take a pledge to take small steps to make the environment healthier,” she said.
