Poster competition on environment held
Srinagar, Aug 10: National Service Scheme (NSS) University of Kashmir organized a poster competition on the theme ‘My Earth My Duty’ at the KU campus today.
Students from various schools of the Valley and Dental College participated in the competition.
On the occasion, Vice Chancellor KU, Prof Talat Ahmad impressed upon the students that they should actively participate in such type of activities.
“It is our collective responsibility to show concern towards earth and environment. Deforestation at large scale has given rise to land erosions which resulted in destruction at mass level,” Prof Talat.
He said that the KU is collaborating with various reputed institutes of the country to study the problems related to earth especially in Jammu and Kashmir.
In his key note address Director Landscape Division KU and noted botanist Dr Irshad Ahmad Nawchoo made comparison about the Kashmir of past and present in relation with environmental issues.
“We have lost a big portion of Dal Lake and continuous deforestation is bringing catastrophe to the fragile ecosystem of our Valley,” he added.
NSS program officer KU, Tariq Abdullah said that such types of events are aimed to sensitize the young students towards the importance of earth and environment.
