GREEN DRIVE- On 13th September 2017, the International Centre for Applied Sciences conducted a green drive as part of the “SwachhataPakhwada” week. It was on this day that the entire student council, including other students of ICAS, had eagerly come forth together to physically implement the essential purpose of a greener and safer world.
This was an initiative by our honorable director, Dr. Radhakrishna S. Aithal, because of whom a goal, which will have a massive beneficial impact in the long run, has finally been put into action. The sapling plantation event was a huge success, with the presence of senior teachers and the student council. The event was commemorated by the planting of a sapling by the director and the associate director, followed by six others planted by members of the student council.
Through carrying out the green drive, the entire body of ICAS completed the first step towards a cleaner and environmentally-friendly place, with a sincere promise of many more steps to take.
If we all join hands and continue to strive progressively towards this goal, we can make an exceptionally beneficial difference on a large scale.
