Amity University Haryana hosting annual NOSPlan Event with theme “Resilient Cities”


Gurgaon, December 25, 2017: National Organization of Student Planning is a student body which organizes National conventions with respect to Planning and Architecture. NOSPlan organizes this event each year in different colleges. This year Amity University Haryana is hosting the annual NOSPlan Event with the theme “Resilient Cities” from 26th to 28th December 2017.
Resilient cities are cities that have the ability to absorb, recover and prepare for future economic, environmental and social shocks. Resilient cities promote sustainable development, well-being and inclusive growth.
In the Indian context, the relevance of resilient cities is more complex and challenging. Post independence and particularly in the last decade, rapid urbanization brought about by mass migration of people from rural to urban India has adversely impacted the ecological balance of our cities. This irreversible phenomenon poses a challenge to our urban planners in both designing cities of the future and in making our existing cities sustainable and resilient. Amity campuses are designed for sustainability and green environment. Amity University Haryana in particular has the distinction of being conferred the Platinum category LEED Certification by the US Green Building council for its 110 Acres Lush Green Campus.
Shri. Vinay Sahasrabuddhe, National Vice President, BJP will be the Chief Guest at the inaugural function. The function will also be graced by Dr Hardeep Puri, Dr Aseem Chauhan, Chancellor, Amity University Haryana and Prof (Dr.) P B Sharma, President – AIU & Vice Chancellor, Amity University Haryana.
Talking about the event Maj Gen G S Bal (Retd.), DSW, Amity University Haryana informed that, “This is a prestigious event organized each year by NOSPlan. This year theme is of great significance to our Urban Planners and will by the end of the event throw up out of the box solutions in making our urban spaces noise sustainable and eco friendly.”
