Our Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s Independence Day address to the nation this year announced Swachcha Bharat Abhiyan on 2nd October, 2014, the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhiji, the Father of the Nation. In backdrop of this and in light of the fact that the Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Human Resource Development and the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) looks forth to each and every institution for active participate in Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, as per AICTE circular (F.No.1-29/CM/AICTE/2012 dated September 24, 2014), Entrepreneurship Development Institute of India (EDI) launched ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’ on 2nd October 2014.
This even unfolded an Institute level campaign through a poster with an action provoking message: “I Yearn for A Swachh Bharat. Do You? If Not Now, When?”
Students pledged to assume responsibility towards environmental well-being and also invited all those who are associated with the Institute to take the pledge. Director – EDI, Chairperson (PGPs), faculty and staff members welcomed the initiative and also signed the pledge for environmental well-being.
EDI’s Oath for Environmental Well-Being:
“I, as a responsible citizen of India promise myself that my actions & behaviour would promote Environmental Well-Being”.
EDI students and staff members also undertook a campus cleaning activity. Though the Institute is well maintained, neat and tidy, students identified certain potential spots worth further clean up. With brooms in their hands, students enthusiastically started cleaning EDI campus to transform it into a litter free campus.
