On the 4th of January, we had the privilege to receive a visit from a few students and professors from Georgetown University which is a leading research university based in Washington DC, USA. Their visit started with a tour of our Sandipani Muni schools accompanied by our team members in order for them to understand more about the projects FFLV has been undergoing.
Moreover, a seminar was conducted which was focused on environmental contamination and prejudices, specifically focusing on Yamuna river pollution where a few students and teachers from SMS, FFLV office staff and visitors from Georgetown university took part.
A powerful presentation was delivered by our staff members about our beliefs, the degraded situation of the Yamuna river and initiatives performed by FFLV under the Clean Yamuna project and other initiatives taken to clean and protect the natural environment of Vrindavan. An interactive group discussion also took place among all the participants about environment protection, Yamuna cleaning, causes of water pollution, consequences and measures that can be taken to reduce pollution and save the environment. It was such a great experience for us, our students and the students from the university to have been provided an opportunity to share and receive knowledge about current prominent environmental issues.
