Swaminathan favours Sikkim & “green” University

Posted by Ramesh Khati on August 15, 2009

Gangtok, Aug 14 (PTI) Sikkim University Chancellor and noted agricultural scientist Prof MS Swaminathan today said the university has the potential to develop itself as the first “green university” of the country.

He also appealed to the university to take a lead in the movement for protection and conservation of ecology and bio-diversity.

Addressing a lecture on ‘Preparing for Climate Changes’ to mark the second foundation day celebrations of the university here, he said the institute has the potential to develop as the first green university due to its location in a virtual greenfield near the state capital.

Describing Sikkim as the genetic paradise by virtue of its rich bio-diversity, Swaminathan said Sikkim University should take upon itself the task to research works on the available resources.
