Panchtatva - The Environmental Society

Panchtatva, the environment society of Hindu College was established in 1999, and has provided record    number of members as environmentalists, nature lovers and well-groomed citizens who live by this society’s simple ideology that “change begins with us”. The society is driven by the motto that, “Only when the last tree has been cut down, the last river has been poisoned, and the last fish has died will we realise that we cannot eat money.” These are the words that every Panchtatvian lives by, which is why even a pandemic couldn’t dampen our society’s spirits. Panchatatva is continuously working toward raising awareness about environmental conservation.

The vision of the environmental society encompasses a variety of perspectives and goals, but generally revolves around promoting sustainable practices, protecting natural resources, and fostering a harmonious relationship between humans and the environment. Some of the key elements in our vision of fostering greater environmental conscious are:

Sustainability: The society envisions a future where ecological, social, and economic systems are in balance, ensuring the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. It involves adopting sustainable practices in areas such as energy, agriculture, transportation, and waste management.

Conservation and Biodiversity: The society values the preservation and restoration of ecosystems and biodiversity. It aims to protect endangered species, safeguard natural habitats, and promote the responsible use of resources to maintain the Earth’s ecological balance.

Environmental Justice: Our society is commitment to addressing environmental inequalities and ensuring equitable access to a clean and healthy environment for all communities. It emphasizes the need to address environmental issues that disproportionately affect marginalized populations and work towards a more inclusive and just society.

Climate Action: The society recognizes the urgency of addressing climate change and strives for a low-carbon emission future. It advocates for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, transitioning to renewable energy resources, adapting to the impacts of climate change, and supporting international cooperation to tackle global warming.

Education and Awareness: Our society promotes sustainable behaviors and inspires collective action. This involves integrating environmental education into curricula, fostering environmental literacy, and   raising public awareness about the interconnectedness of environmental issues.

More than 70 enthusiastic  environmentalists from our Society volunteered in this event.


Impact Analysis of SUP Ban

Panchtatva, the Environment Society of the Hindu College, made the effort of visiting various markets to check and create basic awareness among members of the general public on the significance of the ban on “One-Use Plastic”. The prime objective of this “survey-cum-awareness program” was to understand real-time issues that a common seller is going to face after this prohibition.

These are a few of the recent activities undertaken by the society and it aspires to make further valuable contributions towards increasing awareness about wildlife conservation and environmental protection.
