With several dignitaries present, the event began at 9:00 AM and was flagged off by Dr. HS Ballal, Pro-Chancellor, MAHE. Among those present were Dr. Giridhar P Kini, Registrar, MAHE, Dr. Raviraja NS, Director-Planning and Monitoring, MAHE, and Cdr (Dr.) Anil Rana, Director, MIT.

At 9:50 AM, the Institution Heads and Leadership Team planted saplings to set the event in motion.

Cdr (Dr.) Anil Rana gave a welcome address, following which students Ms Shivani R and Mas Tanvi delivered talks on Environment Day in English and Kannada, respectively.

Addressing the audience, Dr. H S Ballal said, “It is of the utmost importance that we attempt to work with, rather than against mother nature. Development can only be ideal in achievement if the needs of future generations are also kept in mind. We must stay away from selfish, harmful practices of production and work towards a future where humanity and environment perfectly co-exist.”

Providing a message on Environment Day, Dr. Giridhar P Kini said, “World Environment Day is a call to remember the importance of the flora and fauna that belong to the planet, just as much as we do. We must work throughout the year, to empower those who cannot empower themselves, which includes plants and animals. This World Environment Day, let us vow to be responsible for a positive change.” He also explained the Sustainable Development Goals and activities of MAHE towards this effect.

Speaking about the importance of Environment Day, Dr. Raviraja NS said, “True environmental revolution can be achieved if we come together and work towards helping our planet develop. By simple steps like keeping our surroundings clean and spreading awareness about the importance of environmental preservation, we all can do our bit for land restoration and to protect our land from desertification and drought. Let us resolve to preserve our planet for future generations.”

Concluding the ceremony with the national anthem, Mr Balakrishna Prabhu, Estate Officer, MAHE extended a heartfelt vote of thanks, expressing gratitude to the dignitaries, college faculties, students, and everyone else gathered.
