Mass ownership to preserve environment stressed at a moot at SU

Population explosion has given rise to environmental hazards that can be coped through implementing effective counter strategies. Charity begins at home, same way; we should initiate environmental safety measures at home by refusing to use pollutant stuff in everyday life.

Dr. Burfat lamented that they as people were themselves responsible for the deteriorating and aggravating atmospheric state.

The above views were advanced by VC-SU Prof. Dr. Fateh Muhammad Burfat in his presidential remarks at one-day conference on the theme of “Voices of the Future and Environmental Challenges” at Hi-Tech Research Resource Laboratory of University of Sindh, Jamshoro.

“We need to set our own home right and need to avoid behavior detrimental to hygienic environment”, Dr. Burfat said.

The Vice Chancellor cited example of symmetrical city and immaculate regional planning model of ancient city of Moen-Jo-Daro; observing that people of that antique city observed all tenets of environmental safety.

Dr. Burfat felicitated Director Centre for Environmental Sciences Dr. Faryal Almani and her team upon successful organization of the conference.

Fisher Folk Forum lead activist Muhammad Ali Shah stressed on change of life-style and social preferences in the interest of improvement of environmental landscape.

“We should plant in plenty, contain wasted water consumption and raise awareness in the given context to preserve safe environment”, Mr. Shah maintained.

Mr. Shah also called for measures to curb sea erosion caused by reduced water flows at Indus Delta.

Four separate sessions were conducted during the Conference suiting various moot sub-themes. Dr. Altaf Ahmed Siyal, Dr. Amin Qureshi, Dr. Kamran Ansari, Nasir Panhwar, ADC Jamshoro Shoukat Ali Ujjan and others also spoke on the occasion.
