On the occasion of the International Mother Earth Day on 22 April 2023 the Department of Environment and Disaster Management, RKMVERI launched a quarterly e-Magazine titled ‘Mother Earth’.
It is a joint initiative of the faculty, alumni and students of the department to bring out short articles on current concerns on various issues of environment and disaster management and to raise awareness about the issues. This eMagazine will provide a platform to the students for creative expression of their ideas and prepare them for playing larger role in the society.
“This e-magazine, whose first issue will see the light of day on the auspicious occasion of the Earth Day on 22 April 2023, will keep telling its readers the story of the EDM Department—its struggles over more than a decade of its formation, its vision in transmitting the knowledge of our environment and the importance of post- and pre-disaster management to generations of students, and a lot more in this area of ever growing importance. This e-magazine will continually update the readers on the story of in the EDM Departments’ journey in aspiring for and reaching further heights of excellence.“

“It is very encouraging to learn that the Department of Environment and Disaster Management and its students are bringing out an e-Magazine named ‘Mother Earth’ which is to be launched on our website on 22 April, 2023. Earth Day is an annual celebration that honors the volunteers of the environmental movement. It also raises awareness of the need to protect Earth’s natural resources for future generations. In this age of urbanisation this magazine will surely create awareness among us on the environmental issues and make us aware of the importance of environment.“

“It is very appropriate that this e-Magazine is coming up to raise the awareness on the environmental issues and keep the young minds focused on the much needed importance of environment (mother earth) which has already been threatened!“
:- Swami Shivapurnananda, Assistant Administrative Head, RKMVERI, Narendrapur Off-Campus
“It is heartening that faculty, alumni and students of Dept. of Environment & Disaster Management have decided to launch an e-magazine on the occasion of the International Mother Earth Day this year and name it MOTHER EARTH. This connects the initiative of this Department with the civilizational ethos of countries around the world in as much as it does with the contemporary global movements. This further casts upon us an obligation to protect the Mother Earth from the growing pollution, depleting sources, changing climate, and threatening calamities, May the Goddesses of the Mother Earth bless us in our initiatives.“
