Chandigarh, June 4
Panjab University’s Ecological Club is gearing up to celebrate the Environment Day by creating awareness among students and teachers on the campus through a tree plantation drive.

The students of the department of social welfare would also visit Khuda Lahora village, which the university has adopted for creating awareness related to the environment.

In addition to this, an exhibition of posters and banners made by schoolchildren during the “Inspire camp” in PU is also scheduled. The university had also urged staff members to pool cars and not bring their vehicles on the campus tomorrow in the wake of the Environment Day.

“There was a lot of resistance from all quarters when the university made it mandatory to not bring the vehicles on first Mondays of the month. But we will urge to the students and staff to practice it voluntarily at least once a month. The tree plantation drive will be hosted by PU to celebrate the Environment Day,” said Prof AS Ahluwalia of the Ecological Club.
