Activities of the EcoClubDuring the silver jubilee year of the College (2017-18), the EcoClub organised a number of programmes aimed at enriching the environmental awareness of the students and involving them in environmental protection activities

Say No to Crackers Campaign

Eco club organised an awareness campaign for a green and clean Diwali on October 17, 2017. The videos screened at the event aimed at sensitising the audience about the catastrophic pollution levels in Delhi. It was followed by pledge-taking by the participants in which the students and faculty members vowed to take remedial measures. Thereafter, a slogan- writing competition was held and the contestants came up with several motivating slogans

Biodiversity Evaluation within the Campus

Biodiversity refers to the variety of plant and animal life in the world or in a particular habitat and a high level of variety is usually considered to be important and desirable. Biodiversity evaluation is a systematic identification (species, family, economic importance) of plant species within the campus. EcoClub has completed the work of identifying all the plants and trees in the campus with funding support received from Delhi Govt.

Setting up of "Eco Garden"

Creating an ecological garden is a major step in helping the environment and in reducing the carbon footprint. Choosing organic methods for amending the soil, irrigation, and controlling pests and weeds is an integral part of maintaining eco-gardens. It's also important to plant native plant species for creating an earth-friendly garden. Towards establishing the eco-garden soil samples have been collected and given for testing at PUSA and a team of experts from the Yamuna Biodiversity project visited the college campus to identify the species and suitable area for plantation.
