A week-long environment awareness programme titled “No Impact Week 2014” was launched at the senate hall of Jahangirnagar University yesterday.
Department of Environmental Science organised the programme in collaboration with ‘Re-draw the line,’ an environmental organisation.
After inaugurating the programme, chief guest of the session JU Vice-Chancellor Prof Farzana Islam said: “The education for keeping environment safe should start from the family.”
She added that pure water was extremely scarce and should not be wasted.
A seminar on protecting the environment from man-made disasters was held at the inauguration ceremony where speakers said if people changed certain habits in day to day life, the safety of nature could be ensured.
AHM Sadat, a faculty member of the department, said they were trying to make mass people aware of climate change, natural and man-made disasters, and other pollutions happening around.
