9 September, 2017: Hundreds of students from CMR University took to the streets in a silent campaign expressing their concerns about the depletion of rivers in the country.
The silent campaign was flagged off by Prof. Shiv K Tripathi, Dean, Prof S.K Balaraman, Registrar Evaluation and Dr R Praveen, Registrar, CMR University.
The varsity students marched from HRBR Layout 2nd Block through Kullappa Circle, 80 feet Road and back to the CMR University City Campus.
A series of intra-university competitions were organised as part of the campaign to create awareness about the conditions of rivers and to bring out creative measures to save rivers. As part of our commitment towards United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, CMR University is committed to the principles of UN academic impact as well as principles for responsible management education.
‘Rally for Rivers’ is a nationwide campaign aiming to create awareness about rivers initiated by Isha Foundation.
