Management of IIIT, Nuzivid organized NSS activities in college premises and nearby villages on 6-June-2016. Around 250 NSS volunteers participated in the activities. The NSS activities were inaugurated by Director of IIIT, Mr. V Das.
As a part of NSS activities, the students participated actively in Swatch Bharth Campaign, Clean Green and plantation campaign. Students cleaned the college premises initially and then planted trees in the college premises. Later they visited a nearby village, Gonduvaripallem and exposed people to the concept of ‘Importance of Cleanliness’ and cleaned the streets of the village. They also explained people about the importance of plantation and distributed saplings to the villagers. Later students planted the saplings along with some of villagers.
These activities was organized as a part of ‘World Environment Day’. On this occasion, Director of IIIT spoke with the media. He said, “The students took active part in the NSS activities. The students received a grand appreciation from the villagers. Every citizen must play an important role in protecting the environment. The pollution has been increasing day by day and this the root cause for the irregular rainfall and extreme heat during the summer. Taking up plantation campaigns extensively at various cities is very important to control the pollution”.
