The Department of Life Long Learning and Extension (DLLE) at Sinhgad College of Commerce organised an eco-friendly Ganesh workshop in collaboration with the Young Environmentalists Programme Trust (YEPT), a prominent NGO dedicated to environmental conservation. The event was a resounding success, promoting sustainability and raising awareness about the importance of eco-friendly celebrations.
Renowned environmentalist Elsie Gabriel led the workshop, guiding students in crafting eco-friendly Ganesha idols from clay. This initiative aimed to reduce the environmental impact of Ganesh Chaturthi by replacing traditional idols made of non-biodegradable materials with biodegradable alternatives.
In addition to idol-making, students received valuable insights from Gabriel on ocean conservation and the significance of responsible immersion (visarjan) practices. Students learned how harmful materials and pollutants can endanger marine life during the immersion process.
Sinhgad College of Commerce continues to champion eco-friendly initiatives, fostering a sense of responsibility towards the planet among its students and the community at large.
