INTERNATIONAL DAY FOR THE PRESERVATION OF THE OZONE LAYER (Septembert 30, 2013)

Pushpa Gujral Science City (PGSC) in collaboration with Ministry of Earth Sciences celebrated International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer on September 30, 2013 to raise awareness among students and visitors about harmful effects of ozone depletion, its causes, effects and preventive measures. Also, the day was celebrated to commemorate the signing of the Montreal Protocol on substances that deplete Ozone Layer. India became party to the Montreal Protocol in June 1992 and prepared the country program in 1993 for phasing out the Ozone Depleting Substances.


Sh. Biman Basu, a retired scientist from CISR, New Delhi delivered a motivational lecture on this day. He said, “In the past 30 years, it has been discovered that stratospheric ozone is depleting due to action of man-made pollutants. There are a number of chemical reactions that can deplete stratospheric ozone, but the most significant depletion is the result of the catalytic destruction of ozone by free halogen radicals like chlorine and bromine. Chlorofluorocarbon or CFC molecules are made up of chlorine, fluorine and carbon atoms and are extremely stable. This extreme stability allows CFCs to slowly make their way into the stratosphere. This prolonged life in the atmosphere allows them to reach great altitudes where photons are more energetic. When the CFCs come into contact with these high-energy photons, their individual components are freed from the whole, leading to destruction of ozone.” Basu further mentioned that since depletion of ozone in the stratosphere allows dangerous UV-B rays to reach the ground, exposing people to skin cancer, cataract, and other health problems.

 

Dr. R.S Khandpur, Director General, PGSC presided over on this occasion. Dr. Khandpur said that that there is no second opinion that public awareness on every aspect including environmental protection can play a significant role in checking the depletion of the Earth’s Ozone layer due to chemicals such as chlorofluorocarbons or CFCs, produced in refrigeration and air-conditioning industries. Dr Khandpur urged the students to protect and save ozone layer by planting more trees, use public transport and also emphasized on the use of renewable sources of energy.


Pushpa Gujral Science City celebrated this occasion through variety of activities and programmes. About 300 students from different schools participated during the occasion. The following competitions were organized to commemorate this celebration: 

 

  • Expert Lecture by Sh. Biman Basu, a retired scientist from CISR, New Delhi on harmful effects of ozone depletion, its causes, effects and preventive measures

INTERNATIONAL BIODIVERSITY DAY (MAY 22, 2013)

Pushpa Gujral Science City (PGSC) in collaboration with Punjab Biodiversity Board has celebrated International Biodiversity Day through a variety of events aimed to raise awareness among students and visitors for the conservation and sustainable management of biodiversity resources. Dr. R.S Khandpur, Director General, PGSC presided over on this occasion. In his address to the participants, he stated that the ongoing trend of setting the wheat/paddy straw on fire after harvesting the crops not only causes air pollution, but also affects adversely the fertility of the soil posing health hazards majorly eliminating rare and native species of animals and plants from their foot holds. It is the call of the day to save and protect rare species in the fields of Punjab as the unprecedented usage of chemicals fertilizers and insecticide were the reasons behind the destruction of our rare species. 

Dr. Neelima Jerath, Executive Director, Punjab State Council for Science and Technology, Chandigarh and Member Secretary Punjab Biodiversity Board gave an expert lecture on the occasion. In her address to the participants, Dr. Jerath said that India is one of the top 12 mega biodiversity countries and has 4 of 35 biodiversity hot spots areas (Western ghats, Himalayas, Sundarlands and Nicobar Islands). The country is estimated to have 49,000 plant species and 81,000 animal species representing 12.5 per cent of the world's flora and 6.6 per cent of its fauna. She further pointed out that Punjab had a very small area under forest cover, just about 6 per cent of the total geographical area. The major forest areas in the state are Shivalik Forests (especially in Ropar, Gurdaspur and Hoshiapur), Bir Forests (in Patiala) and Mand forests (in Amritsar and Kapurthala). Dr. I.S. Dua, Ex-chairman, Department of Botany, Panjab University, Chandigarh, during his talk said that United Nations has proclaimed May 22 as International Day for Biological Diversity (IDB) to increase understanding and awareness of biodiversity issues. The biodiversity of both animal and plant species are core to the survival of life; yet many of the world’s biodiversity is already destroyed or facing extinction.  Biodiversity and ecosystems need to be protected in order to preserve the quality of life on Earth; many plants and animals have already become extinct through human actions. He opined that an integrated effort by all the countries of the world is necessary to solve this problem; there is hope that with education, compassion, and hard work we can bring about the necessary change to our environment and leave a better world for our children that we inherited from our parents.
