ITS Engineering College, a premier technical institute in Greater Noida, celebrated World Environment Day with a plantation drive on 5 June.

Students and faculty members of the institute planted saplings on the premises in order to send the message of environment consciousness and Indian philosophy of co-existence with nature to others.

Urging every student and faculty member to join hands in fighting the global menace of environmental degradation, Dr. Sanjay Yadav, Dean Students Welfare, called for the exploration of other sustainable alternatives that could play a pivotal role in reducing the production and excessive use of single use plastic that has damaged nature.

In his statement, Dr Yadav said that this problem is an issue of tremendous magnitude that needs to be taken care of by each and every individual.

“Everyone must take ownership of their environment and actively engage in the protection of our earth,” he said.
