New Delhi: Pure Earth Foundation, a charitable society is organizing the 2nd Pure Earth Environment Conference (PEEC) to be held on 24th April 2021 at NIMSME, Hyderabad. PEEC is a bi-annual conference to promote research and innovation in the field of environment, natural resources and social related issues. PEEC was conceived with the notion to encourage and educate the younger generation towards the scientific and technological aspects of all activity associated with sustainable development and environmental conservation.
The focal theme for PEEC 2021 is ‘Environment and Health’. The conference invites students studying under graduation, post graduation or research in Science, Engineering and Social subjects across India to share their techno-scientific and innovative ideas through paper presentations. PEEC aims to build a strong knowledge base and initiate discussions in the field of environment and sustainability. The one-day conference will deliver special addresses during the inaugural session, followed by 25-30 presentations by students. A selection committee will scrutinize papers received from students, and the selected papers will be presented at the conference. Two best paper presentations will be awarded with cash prizes.
