Ludhiana 16 January 2020-More than 120 volunteers of the National Service Scheme (NSS) of Guru Angad Dev Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (GADVASU) resolved to put in their best effort to preserve the environment besides ensuring the cleanliness in the varsity campus. Having registered for a week-long NSS Special Winter camp which was inaugurated here at university campus, the volunteers deliberated as to how every individual and the people surrounding them can contribute their bit in meeting the resolve.

Aimed at training students in preserving the environment and subsequently motivate the society to develop among themselves a sense of social and civic responsibility, the seven day camp was inaugurated by DSW-cum-EO, Dr. Satyavan Rampal. NSS volunteers from College of Fisheries, College of Veterinary Science, College of Dairy Science and Technology and College of Animal Biotechnology would be given hands-on exposure in execution of various processes and methods that could help them in addressing environmental concerns. This year’s camp is themed around concept of 'Paryavaran Aur swachhta Ko samarpit Yuva ” (Youth for Environment and Cleanliness).

“During the camp, we plan to develop a mini Rose Garden in Scientist Home which will not only be developed but also maintained by NSS volunteers in future. Apart from that, we would be conducting a Cyclothon to spread the message of channelising youth’s energy for environmental protection on The weekend”, informed NSS Programme Coordinator Mrs. Nidhi Sharma.

Dr. C K Singh, Head, Department of Pathology, was the Guest of Honour and wished NSS volunteers for successful conduction of the seven days NSS Special Winter Camp. NSS College Programme Officers, Dr. Sivakumar, Dr. Jaspreet singh and Dr. SS Hassan reiterated to students that such camps are essential and are bound not only to save environment but evolve masses to work for this cause.
