Clean and Green Drive at GIK Institute
The act of dropping litter is a social behavior that can only be treated through social measures. Mistaking the trash for food, many animals also eat plastic, suffering obstructions, stomach ruptures and starvation. Positive actions that can encourage people to dispose of their waste in a responsible way include raising awareness of the problem that litter presents, creating a better appreciation for their environment, involving communities in developing local solutions and many more.
In this regard IET GIK CHAPTER held a CLEAN DRIVE on 11th November 2021 which was a major success. The drive started at 10 am from the auditorium till the bottom of the hiking trail. On the day of the drive there was a great response from the students and local community.
The aim of the clean drive was to raise awareness and make people more responsible for garbage management. Furthermore, this allowed a spread of sense of duty in the students that they should keep the place clean and green. Having students aware of their duty makes them more responsible and will help them take actions on how to keep their place clean and healthy because a clean environment is a safe environment. Moreover, after the drive the participants were taken to a hiking trip- the GIK Institute hiking trail.
