JAIN (Deemed-to-be University), under the aegis of Parvayaran Sanrakshan Gatividh, organized the National Environment Youth Parliament (NEYP) 2022 on the theme â€˜Environment and Sustainability at University and Regional Level. This event is considered a first-of-its-kind initiative, hosted specifically for students of Higher Education Institutions from across the country and covered topics on potential actions in tackling Environmental issues. NEYP was held conducted in two rounds: University level on 12 January, coinciding with the National Youth Day, and the regional level was held on 23 January, commemorating the birth anniversary of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose.
The objective of conducting NEYP was to encourage students to deliberate and engage on pressing environmental issues and reflect upon the local perspectives on the environment. The secondary objective was to obtain an optimum resolution at par with the vision of New India towards â€œEnvironment and Sustainabilityâ€. NEYP also focussed on ensuring the conclusion and adoption of the formal Climate and Environment Education program. And address the concerns surrounding the mismanagement of the local environment leading to frequent occurrences of man-made disasters.
At the region level, RV University and M.S. Ramaiah Institute of Applied Sciences co-hosted and partnered with JAIN (Deemed-to-be University) to make this event a grand success and ensure its great reach. Green Assocham supported JAIN (Deemed-to-be University) as the sustainability Partner.
