The Indian Institute of Ecology and Environment (IIEE), New Delhi observed and celebrated its 40th Anniversary on the occasion of the World Environment Day, 5th June 2020. This Institution inaugurated on 5th June 1980 is the only institution of its type in the Indian Sub-continent dedicated for studies, training, research, consultancy, advocacy, publications, conference organization and production of print, audio, video instructional and motivational materials with a view to implementing environment friendly programmes having social, cultural, technological, economic and positive contents for developing a sustainable society. Other activities include pollution monitoring and control, environmental education, impact assessment, disaster preparedness, sustainability education etc.

In order to avoid crowding and for maintaining social distancing, the 40th Anniversary Celebrations took place through webinars and tree plantation drive was organized by asking the volunteers to maintain a minimum distance of 10 feet while planting the saplings at its headquarters : Paryavaran Complex, New Delhi.

While presenting his views on this auspicious occasion, the Founder Chairman of the Indian Institute of Ecology and Environment (IIEE) Dr. Priya Ranjan Trivedi recalled that there used to be no Ministry of Environment when IIEE was established. He further added that IIEE had foreseen that the pollution by 2000AD will be unbearable and that is why formal, informal and non-formal education and training programmes were launched in the areas of environmental education, population and community ecology, environmental laws, natural resources conservation, disaster mitigation, sustainable development etc.

Endorsing the views of the United Nations Secretary General and also the recommendations from the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), Dr. Priya Ranjan Trivedi while asking the world citizenry to take care of the environment further explained that the foods we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink and the climate that makes our planet habitable all come from nature. Each year, marine plants produce more than a half of our atmosphere's oxygen, and a mature tree cleans our air, absorbing 22 kilos of carbon dioxide, releasing oxygen in exchange. Despite all the benefits that our nature give us, we still mistreat it. That is why we need to work on that.

Discussing the urgent need for preserving biodiversity, the foundation that supports all life on land and below water. It affects every aspect of human health, providing clean air and water, nutritious foods, scientific understanding and medicine sources, natural disease resistance, and climate change mitigation. Changing or removing one element of this web affects the entire life system and can produce negative consequences.

Human actions, including deforestation, encroachment on wildlife habitats, intensified agriculture, and acceleration of climate change, have pushed nature beyond its limit. It would take 1.6 Earths to meet the demands that humans make of nature each year. If we continue on this path, biodiversity loss will have severe implications for humanity, including the collapse of food and health systems.


The emergence of COVID-19 has underscored the fact that, when we destroy biodiversity, we destroy the system that supports human life. Today, it is estimated that, globally, about one billion cases of illness and millions of deaths occur every year from diseases caused by coronaviruses; and about 75 per cent of all emerging infectious diseases in humans are zoonotic, meaning that they are transmitted to people by animals.

# Nature is sending us a clear message.

# We are harming the natural world Ė to our own detriment.

# Habitat degradation and biodiversity loss are accelerating.

# Climate disruption is getting worse.

# Fires, floods, droughts and superstorms are more frequent and damaging.

# Oceans are heating and acidifying, destroying coral ecosystems.

# And now, a new coronavirus is raging, undermining health and livelihoods.

# To care for humanity, we MUST care for nature.

# We need our entire global community to change course.

# Letís rethink what we buy and use.

# Adopt sustainable habits, farming and business models.

# Safeguard remaining wild spaces and wildlife.

# And commit to a green and resilient future.

# As we work to build back better, letís put nature where it belongs - at the heart of our decision making.

Inaugurating a Webinar on Environment organized by the Confederation of Young Leaders (CYL), Dr. Priya Ranjan Trivedi recalled and traced the origins of the World Environment Day as the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development was held on 5th June 1972 at Stockholm, Sweden where it was resolved to establish the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and that on 5th June every year the World Environment Day will be observed in all countries of the world.

While answering to the questions raised by the participants attending the Webinar, Dr. Priya Ranjan Trivedi giving his expert opinion about the roles of Governments, Industrial Establishments, International Organizations, Civil Society, International Organizations, Schools, Colleges and Universities, he opined that an integrated approach towards creating environment friendly jobs including green education, green employment, green business and attitudinal change is urgently required to save our mother earth, rather the entire planet.

Dr. Priya Ranjan Trivedi also inaugurated another Webinar on COVID-19, Environment and Economy organized by the Indira Gandhi Technological and Medical Sciences University (IGTAMSU), Arunachal Pradesh where the Chancellor Dr. Markandey Rai, the Pro Chancellor Dr. Utkarsh Sharma, the Registrar Ramesh Chandra, the Controller of Examinations Brajesh Chaubey and the Head, Commerce and Management Department, IGTAMSU also besides presenting their views agreed to promote environmental education and awareness in Arunachal Pradesh in particular and in South Asia in general with a view to depolluting the present environment.

All such persons who had been working with the Indian Institute of Ecology and Environment (IIEE) since its inception in 1980 besides many of the alumnus of IIEE participated in the Webinar organized on this occasion.

Dr. Priya Ranjan Trivedi also announced that besides the Books and Occasional Monographs on different aspects of Environment, other area to be covered during the year 2020 include Spiritual Emergency, National Security, Divinity, Green Computing, Green Technology and COVID-19
