Hassan: Students and lecturers of the Government Science College in the city celebrated save fuel campaign by abandoning their own vehicle and arriving at the college through a government vehicle or through walk.
More than 2,500 students and more than 100 lecturers of the college made a special effort by attending duty in government and public vehicles today without using their own vehicles during a one-day ‘Save Fuel Campaign’ programme organised by the Eco and Adventure Club of the college. The number of people coming to the college in their own vehicle on an average every day, including the college president and students, was 500 people so that the amount of carbon dioxide that was burdening the environment with saving 180 litres of fuel in a day was avoided.
Speaking on the occasion, College Principle Prof Gangegowda said that the” Eco and Adventure Club of our college has organized such a programme on environment to protect the environment. He said that in the recent past, the environment is becoming more polluted and a one-day ‘Save Energy Campaign’ has been launched to create awareness among the public and students also gain more knowledge about it, students coming from far places today without bringing their own vehicle all have travelled by bus and the lecturers who were local here have come to classes on foot which is a good development.”
