A National Seminar on Environment and Ecology: Contemporary Issues, Challenges and Future Perspective is being organised by Geeta Institute of Law on November 29, 2014.
Environmental law is a collective term describing international treaties, statutes, regulations, and common law or national legislation that operates to regulate the interaction of humanity and the natural environment, toward the purpose of reducing the impacts of human activity.
We use the term environment to describe, the Plant’s life – support system for us and for all other forms of life. In effect, the environment is the sum-total of solar capital and earth capital. It also includes the thing created by humans. Environment now extends far beyond the bounds of the local environment, thus it is the intimate enclosure of the individual or a local human population and the global domain of the human species.
Ecology as a discipline is focused on studying the interactions between an organism of some kind and its environment. No doubt, development is the need of time but not at the cost of human survival. The environmental needs, protection, and its degradation is correlated with development. Development becomes meaningless if human survival becomes tough on earth.
The National Seminar on “Environment and Ecology: Contemporary Issues, Challenges and Future Perspective” is being organised to focus attention on the new emerging issues relating to environment and how to tackle them.
