Title of the Practice:

A Green Campus Practice to Create a Welcoming Educational Environment

Objectives of the Practice:

Green Campus Practice is a practice initiated in our BSM to promote a healthy and green environment. The main objectives of this practice are to reduce carbon emissions, conserve resources, and create a safe and healthy environment for students, faculty, and staff. It also helps to reduce the college's environmental footprint and improve the sustainability of our campus. The underlying principles or concepts of Green Campus Practice are conservation, sustainability, and energy efficiency. These principles are implemented by reducing energy consumption, minimizing the use of toxic materials, and encouraging the use of renewable energy sources such as solar and biomass. It also involves the use of eco-friendly products, recycling, and composting. By following Green Campus Practice, our college can contribute to the conservation of our environment and be an example for future generations.

The Context

Designing and implementing Green Campus Practice in Bahirji Smarak Mahavidyalaya required addressing a number of contextual features and challenging issues. Firstly, the college needed to create a system that could save energy, water and other resources, reduce waste and emissions, and promote the use of clean energy sources. In addition, the college needed to ensure that the green practices adopted would be affordable and would not impose a financial burden on the college. Secondly, the college needed to ensure that the green practices adopted would be accepted by the students, staff and other stakeholders, and that the college would be able to create an environment in which people could work together to contribute to sustainability. Finally, the college needed to ensure that the green campus practices would be implemented in such a way that they could be sustained in the long run and would not be a burden on future generations. By addressing these contextual features and challenging issues, Bahirji Smarak Mahavidyalaya was able to successfully design and implement an effective green campus practice.

The Practice

Bahirji Smarak Mahavidyalaya is one of the few higher educational institutions in India that has taken up the initiative to adopt the Green Campus Practice. The college has taken various measures to ensure that its campus is eco-friendly and at the same time, creates a pleasant learning environment for its students.

Firstly, the college has undertaken rainwater harvesting in order to conserve and store rain water for later use. This water is used for various purposes including irrigating the college grounds, providing water for the college's toilets and other facilities, and also to provide drinking water for the students. This measure has helped the college to reduce its dependence on water resources from outside sources and also helps to reduce water wastage. The college also promotes the use of renewable energy sources. Solar energy is used to power the various departments and laboratories in the college. Solar water heaters have also been installed to provide hot water to the students and staff. The college has also adopted the use of biodegradable materials and recyclable items such as paper, plastic and other materials in order to reduce the amount of waste generated in the campus. The college has planted a number of trees in its campus in order to promote environmental sustainability. These trees help to reduce the temperature in the campus and also provide shade to the students. The college has also installed eco-friendly lighting systems such as LED lights in order to reduce electricity consumption. The college also promotes the use of green transportation systems such as electric vehicles and cycles for the students to travel within the campus. This helps to reduce air pollution and also reduces the cost of transportation for the students. Overall, Bahirji Smarak Mahavidyalaya is one of the few higher educational institution in India that has taken up the initiative to adopt the Green Campus Practice in order to promote a sustainable environment and reduce the amount of pollution in the campus. This has made the college stand out from its peers in the country and has become a unique example of eco-friendly practices in the higher education sector. Evidence of Success

Problems Encountered and Resources Required

The Green Campus Practice is a holistic approach to sustainability that is focused on reducing the environmental footprint of educational institutions. Unfortunately, the implementation of this practice is often hindered by a number of problems. One of the main issues is a lack of awareness among the student body of the importance of environmental sustainability. Without an understanding of the issues, it is difficult to motivate the student body to adopt the necessary practices. Moreover, the implementation of the Green Campus Practice requires sufficient resources such as funding, staff, and technology. Moreover, the institutional culture of educational institutions can also present a barrier to implementation. Some institutions may have cultures that do not prioritize sustainability, and this can limit the effectiveness of the Green Campus Practice. Finally, the complexity of the Green Campus Practice can present an additional challenge. It involves multiple stakeholders, and requires effective coordination and communication between all of them in order to be successful. Thus, these are some of the main problems encountered when trying to implement the Green Campus Practice. To overcome these issues, it is important to ensure that there is sufficient awareness and understanding, and that the necessary resources are available.

The organic farming practices are crucial to the economic development of India

Objectives of the organic farming

Organic farming is a holistic system of production and processing of agricultural products, which avoids the use of synthetic inputs like fertilizers, pesticides, and GMOs, and relies on techniques such as crop rotation, companion planting, and natural pest control. The objectives of organic farming are to produce high quality, safe and nutritious food protect the environment; and support sustainable agriculture. Underlying principles of organic farming include soil fertility maintenance and enhancement, biodiversity conservation, pollution prevention, and sustainability.

Organic farming also focuses on animal welfare and humane practices, and encourages the use of renewable energy sources and materials. Organic farming is a way of life that promotes the health of the environment, the people, and the animals that inhabit it. The Context

Organic farming is a form of agriculture that seeks to produce high-quality food while using sustainable practices. The main challenge of organic farming is to balance the production of food with the preservation of the environment. This requires careful consideration of a variety of contextual features and challenging issues. These include the soil quality, water resources, and climate conditions of the region, as well as the availability of organic inputs, pest control, and weed management strategies. Additionally, the cost of organic inputs and the potential for economic return must be taken into account. Finally, organic farming requires a long-term commitment from farmers and other stakeholders to ensure that the practices are properly implemented and maintained over time. The success of organic farming depends on creating a supportive environment in which farmers are able to access the necessary resources and support to ensure that their farms are successful.

The Practice

Organic farming is an agricultural practice that uses natural processes to cultivate crops and raise livestock, without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or other artificial inputs. It is a holistic approach to farming that is focused on sustaining and improving soil fertility, water quality, and biodiversity. In India, organic farming is gaining momentum due to its advantages over conventional farming techniques. It is considered to be a sustainable and eco-friendly practice that not only helps to preserve the environment but also improves the quality of the food produced. Organic farming practices in India are unique in the context of higher education, as the universities have developed specific courses and research centers dedicated to the study and promotion of organic farming. These universities are focusing on the development of organic farming methods that are tailored to the particular conditions of the region, thereby enabling farmers to have access to more efficient and cost-effective farming methods. The universities also provide extensive training and support to farmers and other stakeholders involved in organic farming, in order to promote the adoption of organic farming practices.

The constraints and limitations of organic farming in India include lack of adequate infrastructure, lack of awareness and expertise in organic farming techniques, and lack of financial resources. In addition, organic farming requires higher input costs than other farming methods, due to the fact that organic inputs are more expensive than those used in conventional farming. In addition, organic farms are also more vulnerable to pests and diseases, due to their lack of access to chemical pesticides
