Origin of the term environment is considered from the French
word/term “Environia” which means “to surround”. Environment
also refers to biotic (living) and abiotic (non-living or physical) world.
So, we can say that the surrounding in which any organisms lives is called
environment. Organisms and the environment are two active and composite components
of nature, where environment regulates the life of the organisms including
human beings. Key to the future of mankind is relying only in sustainable
development. Continuously growing problems like pollution, loss of forget,
solid waste & e-waste disposal, degradation of environment, issues like
economic productivity and national security, Global warming, the depletion
of ozone layer and loss of biodiversity have made everyone aware of environmental
issues. The United Nations Conference on Environment and Development held
in Rio de Janeiro in 1992 and world Summit on Sustainable Development at Johannesburg
in 2002 have drawn the attention of people around the globe to the deteriorating
condition of our environment. It is clear that no citizen of the earth can
afford to be ignorant of environment issues. Environmental management has
captured the attention of health care managers. Managing environmental hazards
has become very important.
Human beings have been interested in ecology since the beginning of civilization. Even our ancient scriptures have emphasized about practices and values of environmental conservation. It is now even more critical than ever before for mankind as a whole to have a clear understanding of environmental concerns and to follow sustainable development practices.
The media in today’s scenario plays a vital role in creating awareness and raising any social issue or matter which is related to public interest. As we know that in the present scenario when the technology is so advanced and each and everyone has access to it and due to this reason media has also reached to the every nook and corner of the world. Now with the help of Mobile Apps available for smartphones any with a data connection in his/her phone can view, read and listen to the various news and entertainment media.
Keeping in view the Modern Rohini Education Society has come-up with an idea to organize a conference on the Role of Media in Environment Conservation and Management. This conference is aimed to assemble the experts of media, environmental studies and media academicians alongwith the activists working in the field of environment conservation and management under one roof so that all of them can brainstorm to get some new ideas and solutions to the Environment Conservation and Management and how media can help in it. The conference is also aimed to discuss the issues of Environment conservation and Media relationship.
