LPU students had participated along with many other students of different institutions, in a month-long ‘My Waste, My Responsibility’ awareness drive of Municipal Corporation Jalandhar. Creative students of LPU had competed in poetry and digital poster making competitions under the ‘Trash to Treasure’ category for ‘Cleanup Jalandhar’ awakening campaign. Mayor Jagdish Raja has appreciated the massive participation of the students.
Speaking aloud about the awakening campaign, LPU student Muskan’s First Prize winning revolutionary Hindi poem says-“Have Belief in Disbelief, Flow against current of the waves; Our Waste Our Responsibility, declare from today alone this very phrase.” Similarly, Ishmit and Radhika’s poems won second and third prize respectively. In another competition of ‘Digital Poster Making’, Apoorv Lal’s creation was applauded with second prize.
With Lovely Professional University (LPU) as its Education Partner, the Jalandhar Municipal Corporation had launched a month- long ‘My Waste, My Responsibility’ campaign based on 3Rs — Reduce, Reuse and Recycle principles under ‘Swachh Survekshan-2021’. It is to be completed on 15th October 2020, with 6 Kms long Cycle Rally in the city by observing COVID 19 related directives. Thousands of National Service Scheme (NSS) volunteers were also linked to this campaign directly or indirectly.
For this, residents of the area were asked to use their creative mind to make judicious use of waste under the ‘Trash to Treasure’ activity. They were asked to upload the post on Facebook (video/ photo) of anything they created out of waste and were asked to tag #mcjalandhar & #cleanupjalandhar.
