Eco Club

The Eco-club named 'Terra' aims to create awareness of nature and environmental issues through hands-on activities and field exposure trips and is anchored at the School of Human Ecology. In the past, field trips have been organized to Sultanpur Jheel (Haryana) and Keoladeo Ghana National Park (Rajasthan) for the purpose of exposing students to diversity of birds and habitats and learning to identify common birds. In addition, there have been a recycling and water conservation awareness drive in the Dwarka Campus, a sale of recycled paper items during Audacity 2011 and an environmental poster competition. A website has been created by AUD students for Terra which documents the activities of the Eco-Club and which will soon be linked to the AUD website. In the near future, awareness trips are planned on the issue of waste recycling within Delhi and tree identification on the Delhi Ridge.
