Raksha Bandhan 2018 in India:
Tie Rakhee To Trees This Time
The first valedictory session of the Green Skill Development Program (GSDP) trainees of Centre for Environment, Energy and Climate Change (CEECC) at Asian Development Research Institute (ADRI) was held here on Friday.
CEEEC, ADRI is an ENVIS resource partner on water management and climate change under the aegis of the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEFCC). Courses on ‘Water Budgeting and Auditing’ and ‘Pollution Monitors: Air and Water Pollution’ were conducted at the CEEEC from June 9.
Deputy CM Sushil Kumar Modi (SuMo) and senior economic adviser (MoEFCC) Anandi Subramanian attended the function.
Speaking on the occasion, SuMo said the state government was adding ‘Climate Change’ in the name of environment and forest department, which itself suggests how crucial is the study on changing climate patterns has become. He also focused on the coming festival of Rakshabandhan. He urged everyone to tie ‘raksha sutra’ to the trees as they were the real protectors.
Subramanian reiterated the MoEFCC’s vision. And stating that “the demographic dividend in the country coupled with huge school dropouts instigated us. It is for skill the youth in a non-traditional field where there is a dearth of a workforce. Thus, green skilling the youth became our motto, considering the deteriorating environment”.
CEECC director Abinash Mohanty said, “proper skilling is absent and we optimistically look forward to this course and the trainees of the pilot batch.”
