Patna: Today on the occasion of the World Earth Day, an in-house seminar and a plantation drive was organized at Chandragupt Institute of Management Patna (CIMP) as part of IIC celebration Activity to spread awareness about issues, including pollution, deforestation and global warming.
To mark the celebration this year, CIMP had collaborated with two renowned organisations from Bihar which are actively working in the field of environment and climate change, namely The Taru Mitra NGO and the Climato Reformers Foundation.

While addressing the event, Mr. Mukesh sensitized the students about the global problem of climate change and talked about the various sustainable practices to reduce the CO2 emissions and heal our earth. He said, “Each one of us is equally impacted by climate change and it is not one-nation problem but a global threat to all the living organisms as a community. We should adopt simple measures in everyday life to reduce the carbon footprints and focus on energy-conservation, water-conservation and tree plantation”. He also motivated students be become “climate-reformers” and join the movement of “Building a better tomorrow for generations to come”.
Later a video message from Fr. Tony was played. In his message, he talked about the 2022 theme of World earth day which is “Invest in our planet” and sensitized about the need to invest in our plant simply by planting more and more trees to reduce the harmful effect of climate change.
