PRAKRITI - The Environment Society

The Environment Society of the college was established in 2009 and since then it has been instrumental in involving and engaging the students of the college in creating awareness about and sensitivity to issues related to the environment. The society has over the years successfully initiated new campaigns and strengthening the existing projects with the support of a dedicated team of volunteers. The society works with the spirit of Try to leave the earth a better place than when you arrived.

Regular film screenings are held for the members of the society to make them aware of the climate change discourse. Nature walks are a regular and a popular event organized by the society, walks have been led and directed by renowned bird watcher Mr. Ranjit Lal and Dr. Bharati Jagannathan of Miranda House. Volunteers regularly attend workshops organized by the Delhi Govt. and TERI.

Some of the going projects of the society are green railing. The concept involves innovatively using empty PET bottles, painting them and then planting saplings in them. The bottles are then hung in the college premises. The society is regularly involved in organizing clean and green drives in the college and in the neighborhood. Waste paper is recycled in the recycling plant run by the society. Regular essay competition, rangoli, slogan writing and photography competitions based on the theme of nature are organized by the society. Volunteers through campaigns create awareness on issues like SAY NO TO CRACKERS and USE OF ORGANIC COLOURS.

Members of the society also stage nukaad natak to create awareness on these issues in the jhuggi clusters around the college. To generate awareness debate, and discussions among the students, talks are also organized. Students present papers on issues related to environment.
