“Compared to the Westerners, our love of the environment comes only for some personal gains but the love of the environment IS something that has to come from itself”, he added. Teachers and students from twenty-five selected schools got the opportunity to join the club. The club will coordinate the environmental protection and constructive activities from these schools. The club also aims to spread the benefits of science to the community. Dr. Shaiju.P, C-Sis Director presided over the function and Dr. Abesh Raghuvaran, Club Coordinator, and Sheena Mathew spoke.
