DAV holds rally to generate awareness on water conservation

MCM DAV College for Women in Sector 36 hosted a rally to generate awareness and concern among people about water conservation, on Thursday. The event has been envisaged to cover all DAV schools and colleges at the national level, in light of the United Nations declaring 2013 as the International Year of Water Conservation.

The curtain raiser organised at MCM marked the beginning of a nation-wide series of events starting from January 19 to propagate the significance of water conservation and develop a sensitive approach towards harvesting the precious natural resource.

College Principal, Dr Puneet Bedi, highlighted that the issue of water conservation calls for urgent global response. She lauded the endeavour undertaken by DAV and assured that this initiative would extend to all quarters and achieve far- reaching success.
