NEW DELHI: The University of Delhi (DU) hosted the inaugural meeting of cultural-cum-academic activities regarding the G20 summit. The DU culture council will organise programmes in various colleges and departments from August 28 to November 29 to celebrate India's presidency in G20.

The DU vice-chancellor Yogesh Singh in his address at the inaugural meeting said, “ At present, the biggest problem facing the world is climate change. But, if we try to find a solution to this, then there is a solution in the Indian tradition of knowledge (Bhartiya Gyan Parampara) only.”

“ Due to Bhartiya Gyan Parampara, India used to have a growth rate of 36% in ancient times. At that time when India was a rich country, we did not destroy our forests, rivers, and our environment. This is a real example of sustainable development” further added Singh.

The vice chancellor presented G20 flags to all the nodal centres. According to the university, the annual report of the culture council was also released on the occasion.

Anoop Lather, the chairperson of the culture council, delivered the welcome address and said, “ India has been the centre of knowledge since ancient times. Just as today the youth of India go abroad for higher education after getting education from here and then serve there, in the same way in ancient times people from abroad used to come to India to get education.”

The event concluded with the dean of the culture council Ravindra Kumar proposing the vote of thanks. The event was attended by the dean and principals of respective colleges, teachers, and students.
