Speaking as a Chief Guest Prof. Harinder Kumar Chaudhary, Vice-Chancellor, announced that from the ensuing academic session, the University will introduce a course on environmental science where it will be compulsory for each student to plant and take care of at least two plants during his or her stay at the campus. The students will be awarded grades at the end of their degree programme based on the performance of their plants. The Vice-Chancellor said that Mother Nature has been worshipped in India for ages and plants had been an integral part of all religious and other important ceremonies. “God gave a beautifully decorated earth to us but human greed has badly bruised it resulting in a catastrophe where man has been compelled to purchase oxygen for survival”, said Prof Chaudhary. He opined that the students right from the nursery classes to the highest degree programme should be sensitized about nature and should be taken to forest areas for ‘forest therapy’ so that they connect to nature and care for it throughout life. He also discussed the issues related to carbon credits and its importance in reducing, removing and avoiding greenhouse gas emissions for the healthy environment. He also underlined the importance of judicious planning for plantations so that region-specific approved plantations are done by the concerned industry, institution, community or individuals. The Vice-Chancellor said that there should be the least disturbance to centres of diversity and micro-centres for keeping doors of evolutionary paths open. The Vice-Chancellor said everyone should understand ones responsibility for the conservation, preservation and propagation of a healthy environment. He said that it is vital to restore the damage to ecosystems and biodiversity by reimagining and recreating it for the sake of humanity.
