Pope's College – Sawyerpuram – Thoothukudi,

National Assessment and Accreditation Council



The Pope Eco-Club of our college was started in the year 1993 with a vision of creating environmental awareness among students and the society by the then principal of Pope’s College Major T.J.T. Rajkumar on 13th October with a motto of “Think Globally and Act Locally”.     Every year students were enrolled as members regularly and on and off campus activities have been progressed systematically. The activities of the club includes planting  trees, fencing rare plants and trees, conducting awareness programs  like processions on no plastics, traffic safety etc and organising eco tour to places like Chengaltheri, Manjolai, Kodayar, Thenmalai, Munnar Estate etc in the Western Ghats . So far, nearly forty seven trees were planted in our campus and breezing the glory of the Eco-Club. Our magnum opus of our activity was guarding the pillar roots of the banyan tree in our campus with tree guards which saved the old tree intact even after successive storms in the late years of nineties. Members of our club actively participated in the Environmental awareness seminars and workshops conducted in other colleges also. Guest Lectures are arranged by our college in different occasions. The Pope Eco-Club has been functioning successfully with the farthest vision of taking care of the world’s environmental future and resources.
