UoM's overseas students take part in cleanliness drive in Mysuru

At a time when scores of foreign students in the state are in the news for all the wrong reasons, the overseas students at University of Mysore (UoM) have joined hands with the locals for a social cause.

Members of International Students Federation of University of Mysore have come forward to create an awareness about cleanliness. They took out a cleanliness drive at Rajkumar Park in the city on Sunday.

Students from 67 countries across the world, studying in the UoM, took part in the drive along with city-based students of Mahajana College. The drive aims to maintain a good rapport with local people and also to promote Mysuru Model United Nations Conference (MYSMUN), organised to understand international relations among the student community. The conference will be held from July 27 to 29.

“The objective of the conference is to discuss about various issues and challenges in terms of diplomacy, social and economic issues between different countries through a series of talks like ‘Sustainable Development Goals: The Role of Tertiary Students’ and other topics,” said, Tinashe, president of the federation.

Special representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for West Africa and the Sahel (UNOWAS) Mohammed Ibn Chambas and Deputy Permanent Representative of Ghana to the UN Philbert Johnson will attend the inaugural session at the Open Air Theatre in Manasagangothri.

Interaction sessions on ‘Education for Sustainable Development’, ‘Promoting Gender Equality’, ‘World Conflicts and Resolutions Issues in South Sudan, Yemen and Syria’, will be held at various halls at B N Bahadur Institute Of Management Sciences on July 28, he said.
