Apeejay Dwarka campus marks World Earth Day

Students and faculty commemorate the day by pledging to save more energy and keep the planet healthy



Every year, on April 22, the world celebrates Earth Day demonstrating support for environmental protection. Imbibing the spirit of being respectful towards our planet, to protect the environment and to live a more sustainable lifestyle, Apeejay Institute of Mass Communication (AIMC) celebrated Earth Day. 

The celebration was graced by Dr Alka Munjal, Director of Apeejay School of Management, Professor Sajal Mukherjee, Director at AIMC along with senior faculty members that included Dr. Pijush Dutta, Professor and Programme Director at AIMC, and Professor Naveen Gautam, Assistant Professor at AIMC.

Students and faculty members took a unique and innovative initiative that left a strong impact on participants’ minds. The brand activation team of AIMC, Wundervision, took the initiative to help the Earth from environmental damage in its own way.   

During the celebration, all the lights in the campus were turned off for three minutes. All participants switched on their mobile phones’ torch lights and while waving the same took a Earth Day pledge relating to the 3Rs – Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. They promised to switch off lights when they are not in use while taking a step towards saving more energy and keeping Planet Earth healthy. 

Ananya Bhanja Deo, one of the participants said, “Every action you take makes a difference, and you must choose what kind of difference you want to make. So choose wisely. This earth that we are in is not an inheritance of our ancestors but we have borrowed it for our future generations so make sure you pass them a good one to live in.”

Adding further, Dr. Pijush Dutta said, “Our planet is precious. So, this Earth Day we took a pledge to improve the quality of living for the habitats. And for this we all are responsible to take small yet impactful steps to save our Earth from any kind of damage, climate change and pollution.”
