About Ecology Club

The Ecology Club of IIM Kashipur is a dedicated student body working towards adoption of environment friendly practices and ideas for the development of sustainable campus. It is an initiative by a few like-minded individuals who felt it necessary to get together and do something for the place they live in. We identify areas in the functioning of campus where environment friendly alternatives can be adopted and put forward the proposals to the administration for their implementation. We promote a culture and lifestyle of environment conservation like minimum waste generation, energy conservation and wildlife preservation among the IIM fraternity through events, activities and campaigns. We share ideas of sustainable development and eco-friendly practices through newsletters and social media handles with a belief that minor changes adopted by a majority create considerable impact. Sustainable Development is our goal, and everyone is welcome to join us.
