Environmental Ethics

There is an urgent need to inculcate sensitivity towards environmental degradation among people by fostering environmental ethical values.  Environmental Ethics attempts to define what is right and what is wrong regardless of cultural differences. We human beings have a fundamental duty towards nature to respect and care for the Earth, protect life-support systems, biodiversity and ensure sustainable development.
The following are the environmental ethical values to be inculcated:

  • Environmental consciousness
  • Humility and reverence
  • Responsibility and commitment
  • Respect for all forms of life and landscape
  • Global environmental citizenship
  • Self-reliance
  • Adoption of eco-friendly culture
  • Preservation of diversity on the planet
  • Sharing a common environment
The spectrum of environmental activities for inculcating environmental ethical values are:
  • Using recycled paper for notes and circulars
  • Diverting wastes from kitchen to the garden
  • Switching off unnecessary lights
  • Using bicycles or walking
  • Using public transport systems
  • Collecting rainwater
  • Avoiding usage of freshwater for gardening
  • Using cloth towels instead of paper towels
  • Avoiding unnecessary outdoor lighting
  • Organizing tree-plantation campaigns
  • Reducing volume of radio and television to reasonable levels
  • Listening to radio programs on environment and its problems
  • Organizing eco-clubs
  • Placing trash cans and dustbins around the college premises
  • Observing Environment day on 5th June and Earth day on 22nd April
  • Planting trees in and around the campus
  • Encouraging healthy lifestyles through balanced nutrition, exercise and yoga
  • Helping enforce environment protection laws
  • Staging short plays on environmental crisis to create environmental awareness
  • Conserving energy resources by avoiding unnecessary wastage of energy
  • Cutting and displaying pictures and newspaper cuttings depicting environmental crisis

  4. Wow: who will ever believe that a natural herb can cure tinnitus, i never believe that this will work i have spend a lot when getting drugs from the hospital to keep me healthy,i went to many hospitals for cure but there was no solution, One day I was in the office going through the internet when i see so many people testifying about Dr Williams herbal medicine on how they where been cured from tinnitus and so many other similar body problem, so i mail him.He told me all the things I need to do and also give me instructions to take, which I followed properly. Before I knew what is happening after two weeks To my greatest surprise after patiently going according to instruction given to me by Dr Williams, all the ringing in my ears stop gradually and up thing this moment i have not experience anything ringing in my ears. I want to say a big thanks to Dr Williams who God have sent to heal his people with his natural medicine i pray that God will bless you for the good work you are doing.for all who are still suffering from this disease, you can also contact Dr Williams through his email address on;drwilliams098765@gmail.com
