Under the subject, “Protect our Species,” CUD’s H3 Club organized the annual Earth Day on campus.
The aim of the event was to raise awareness & educate students about the importance of the Reduce, Re-use and Re-cycle initiative and addressed issues surrounding sustainability and environmental protection and consisted of various presentations, food stalls, challenges, games, raffles which was both entertaining and educational.
Several external organizations took part and there were several booths aimed at supporting “up cycling” or improving and reusing unneeded things.
Students were requested to bring unneeded, light-colored t-shirts (for tie-dyeing), broken electronics, empty batteries and plastic water bottles. The bottles entitled the students to raffle tickets, the winners receiving prizes.
Initiatives made by the university were announced to raise awareness in society about how plastids affect marine life, causing not only pollution but also a decrease in fishing, sick animals and therefore an impact on health and the economy.
