Ever since, International Mother Earth Day is observed as an acknowledgement that the Earth and its ecosystems provide its inhabitants with life and sustenance. Institutions around the world have joined this movement in a show of solidarity for a collective responsibility to promote harmony with nature and the Earth, and to achieve a just balance among the economic, social and environmental needs of the present and future generations of humanity. In keeping with its annual practice of observing International Mother Earth Day, Alliance University—under the aegis of the Department of Corporate Social Responsibility, organized faculty, staff and student volunteers to visit local community neighborhoods in the vicinity to spread awareness on the environment. These volunteers held a street rally in Anekal where they carried banners and placards that displayed messages on the benefits of tree plantation and water conservation. Student volunteers also performed street plays, which were deeply appreciated by the local community for their message on environmental preservation.
