This year World Environment Day-2020 was celebrated at Dr. D.Y. Patil Biotechnology & Bioinformatics Institute (DYPBBI), Tathawade, Pune through the online interface with the theme “Biodiversity” as recommended by United Nations.

On this occasion, an e-poster competition was organized. Entries for the e-poster competition were invited on 5th June 2020 around the theme “Biodiversity” with the following topics-

Impact of COVID-19 on-

a) Avian Biodiversity,

b) Air Pollution, and

c) Human Health

All the class coordinators and students actively forwarded the flyer on the e-poster competition to their respective classes. Students were also instructed not to step out of their homes for preparing the e-posters. During the lockdown situation, this e-poster competition gave students a chance to bring out their hidden talent in the form of poster creation. This also allows recognition of uniqueness and identity, thereby, reducing their stress levels. In all, 11 e-posters were received for evaluation. After the assessment of the e-posters by the evaluation committee, three entries were selected as winners of this e-poster competition. Participation certificates were given to all the participants as well as the winners were given prizes. This e-poster competition was initiated by Dr. Minal Wani and successfully coordinated by Dr. Gayatri Gera, Dr. Shuchi Nagar, and Mr. Sandeep Bansode. Guidance from Prof. Pal and Dr. Neelu Nawani helped for smooth conduct of this activity.
