The words of Mahatma Gandhi, "The world has enough for everyone's needs, but not everyone's greed.", keep echoing incessantly in our ears whenever we read anything about the rapid pace of the dreadful climate change. It is high time now, that we keep a check on our activities and work on ways to go forward towards a sustainable Earth for not just human beings, but every other living being.
GIM has always poised itself as an institute having active participation towards global social responsibilities and sustainability. It has continuously aligned itself with the directives of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
With resources being overshot every day as we walk, it is time that each one of us realises this fact more than ever that there is no Planet B for us to run away to.
Let this International Earth Day be an occasion for each individual to reflect upon their practices and contribute towards making Mother Earth a better place.
