The current strategies of economic development are using up resources of the world so rapidly that our future generations, the young people of the world, would have serious environmental problems, much worse than those that we are facing at present. Thus current strategies have come to be considered unsustainable for the world’s long-term development. To ensure sustainable development, any activity that is expected to bring about economic growth must also consider its environmental impacts so that it is more consistent with long term growth and development. This brings us to the need for environmental education and to promote the novel thoughts and forms the basis of this national seminar.
The sub themes of seminar are:
1. Climate change and sustainable development
2. Role of greenhouse gases and toxic chemicals on environment
3. Sustainable agricultural practices
4. Ecofriendly management of crop health and nutrition
5. Women in agriculture
6. Sanitation and Public Health Management
The conference is open to all those who are interested in the area of climate change, public health, environment and sustainable agriculture. The scientists, faculty members, research scholars, and students from Universities/Institutions, persons working with NGO’s, and individuals are eligible to participate.
