Report on World Environment Day 2023
World environment day 2023 on the theme ‘Only one Earth’, was celebrated in AIIMS Mangalagiri campus on 5th June 2023. The following activities were carried out with the sanitation and hygiene committee, social and environment club, and nursing officers association under the Swachhta action plan.
Awareness talks in the OPD on various aspects of environmental pollution and different solutions on tackling the same given by nursing officer Mr. Harsha G.
Mime by nursing officers on the theme of plastic pollution. The nursing officers association organized this, and the audience appreciated it well. The mime ended with a message on stopping plastic pollution.
Distribution of cloth bags in the OPD to patients was carried out by the medical superintendent Dr. Vineet Thomas Abraham. In addition, cloth bags were distributed by the nursing officers and various other faculties. The idea of distributing the bags was to discourage the use of plastic bags so that plastic consumption could be reduced.
Tree plantation on the campus by students of the social and environment club around the hostel premises.
The students also made planters from empty plastic bottles and hung them around the student amenities hall. These planters are a symbol of up cycling and nature conservation.
All the activities were well coordinated and were appreciated by the public. We thank all the people who participated in the events.
