THREE DAY NATIONAL SEMINAR ON SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT

THREE DAY NATIONAL SEMINAR ON SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT- THE GLOBAL CHALLENGE

Nature has been kind enough to gift us with considerable bounty in the form of clean and healthy environment but the greed of the human society is testing the patience of nature. Since the advent of civilization, waste management has been a matter of great concern. The ignorance and negligence of humans towards environment and the mentality to over exploit and misuse the assimilating capacity of nature has adverse effects on global population and to the human existence. The need of the hour thus is to address this issue with much diligence. Even the well-developed International community has proved to be a failure in managing and tackling this growing problem. The issues like Municipal Waste management and Industrial Waste management are those which have already been much discussed. E-waste management and Bio-medical waste management are those subjects which have received scant regard. Therefore, the Center for Criminal Laws of His Highness Maharaja's Government Law College, Ernakulam wishes to discuss and put forward the need to tackle this ever burdening crisis of managing waste with specific reference to E-waste and Bio-medical waste management. We are conducting a three day national seminar on the topic “Solid Waste Management- The Global Challenge" from 16th March to 18th March 2016 and the sessions of the seminar is expected to be packed with the lecturers of Learned Resource Persons.
