Haritha Krishna Eco club - About


Haritha Krishna Eco-club

  1. Introduction:

Education goes beyond classes with in the college building, it also continuous outside:  if the college and students are motivated to grow a nice garden, the students will be able to enjoy themselves outdoors and at the same time be able to learn about the nature, environment, growing vegetables, fruits, and flowers, caring plants and ecofriendly lifestyle. This will not only give ambience to the college but also nurture nature friendly living in the students and staff of teaching and nonteaching.

Eco club plays an important role in spreading environmental awareness among student and mobilizing their participation in environment related activities. A group of people who are interested doing something towards environment can achieve much more than an individual can do. All sorts of clubs can be formed, but an Eco club will enable us to do something positive about the environment. The main purpose of Eco club is to make students feel, think, and be aware of the environmental issues.
