    various universities and institutes spread over North West, North and North East India
    are attending this seminar. This department is celebrating its golden jubilee this year
    and this seminar is a part of one of its celebrations.

    Sh Sunder Lal Bahuguna emphasized the importance of earth and forests and scientific
    knowledge should not be used for the destruction of humankind. Before applying science,
    we should think from heart so that humans banish the path of destruction.

    Prof B.S Brar in his presidential remarks advised to follow the rationalist approach
    rather than nationalistic in matters concerning humanity and problems faced by them.
    Professor K.D. Sharma the Convener of the Seminar and Chairman of the department while
    welcoming the delegates traced the important contributions that the Department of
    Anthropology at Panjab University Chandigarh has made in the last 50 years of its
    existence. Prof Sharma further emphasized that the field Environmental Anthropology
    offers the opportunity to acquire advanced knowledge of how different societies are
    influenced by the environment and manage natural resources and hazards, in relation to
    issues in human ecology, biodiversity management, sustainable development, environmental
    change. Keeping in view the new developments and current issues affecting humans, the
    department has undertaken many new initiatives in the recent years. The department’s
    unique and nationally acclaimed ‘Museum of Man’, is under renovation, six new life-size
    models are being added and it is thematically being developed under four major themes.
    Professor Shalina Mehta, the Organising Secretary of the Seminar highlighted on the
    theme of the seminar. She emphasized that anthropogenic factors were responsible for
    both destruction and rejuvenation of ecological balance. Anthropology with its holistic
    perspective and multidimensional approach, explores relationship between culture,
    biology, environment and human factors that disturb ecological balance.

    Prof Binod C. Agrawal in his key-note address remarked that anthropologists must extend
    their micro-in-depth understanding of human adaptive abilities and cultural skills for
    fighting climate change and global warming. Dr. Chemendra Sharma in his inaugural
    address pointed out that anthropogenic activities like agriculture, fossil fuel
    combustions, urbanization etc were responsible for global warming.
