Eco Club of ASM organised a Seminar on 'Melting Glaciers: Challenges and the Road Ahead'

Delhi, Jan 6, 2022: The Eco Club of Apeejay School of Management (ASM) organised a Seminar on 'Melting Glaciers: Challenges and the Road Ahead' on 6 January 2022 to create awareness about the impending catastrophe and an urgent need for public policy interventions on the matter.

"Unfortunately, people talk less about the alarmingly accelerated rate of melting glaciers as its impacts are not immediately visible," observed Prof. Etinder Pal Singh, Deputy Director, ASM, while inaugurating the Seminar. He said that the issue must be at the center of public discourse so that the policymakers pay heed to the emerging concerns and take corrective measures before it is too late.

Mr V Selvarajan, Founder, Green Circle, in his opening remarks at the Seminar, observed that the melting of glaciers sustains the world, but the abnormal rate of melting threatens the very survival of life on the planet earth. He said that the worryingly high rate of melting glaciers in different parts of the world has been causing frequent natural disasters like cyclones, floods, and droughts resulting in loss of revenue and livelihoods. He called for the sincere implementation of a global action plan for managing the rate of melting glaciers as per the Paris Agreement 2015 which mandates a determined reduction in carbon emission by all the countries party to the accord. Mr Selvarajan maintained that we are already in the middle of a climate crisis and need urgent action by all the countries without further ado.

Speaking on the occasion, Ms Shriti Goyal, Student, PGDM (2021-23 batch), ASM, said that global warming is causing melting glaciers and we need to address the related issues with a greater sense of urgency. She further observed that excessive carbon emissions cause global warming and the sooner we switch to cleaner energy, the better it will be to arrest the melting glaciers which are reservoirs of freshwater.

Ms Ananya Bhanja Deo, student, Post Graduate Diploma in Corporate Communication & Event Management (2021-22 batch), Apeejay Institute of Mass Communication, emphasised the need of taking up accountability at the personal level to mitigate the crisis. Ms Deo said that even a small step such as keeping the inbox free from junk mail by regularly deleting them can contribute towards reducing the energy needs to maintain cloud computing infrastructure and thereby lessening global warming which in turn can help in slowing down the rate of melting of glaciers.

Mr Aditya Anand Jha, student, PGDM (2021-23 batch), ASM, spoke about the worrisome impact of the rate at which the glaciers are melting today and emphasised that people should be prepared for the proverbial doomsday if the scenario does not change so far as the crisis management of climate change issues are slow-paced and imbued in the conflict between developing and developed nations.

Prof. Kamal Kishore, Dean, ASM, and Dr Srirang Jha, Head, General Management Area, ASM, also shared their views on how the crisis emanates from melting glaciers can be contained.

The Seminar was moderated by Ms Kajal Kumari, student, PGDM (2021-23 batch), ASM. Ms Leena Raheja, student, PGDM (2021-23 batch), ASM, summed up the deliberations and proposed a vote of thanks.
