A webinar on scientific development underway in Kapurthala.


Tribune News Service
Jalandhar, August 14
Pushpa Gujral Science City celebrated Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav by organising a webinar on science communication and national development. More than 100 students and teachers from different educational institutions of Punjab participated in the webinar. The event was celebrated to commemorate 75 years of progressive India and the glorious history of its people, culture and achievements.
GS Rautela, former DG, NCSM, was the key speaker on the occasion. Delivering his talk, he said the public has increasingly become aware of and interested in scientific development such as medicine, climate change, telecom etc., which directly affected them. However, the perception of some that science and technology are harsh and are the root cause of environmental degradation and other ill effects on our planet, as well as the inadequate science literacy and gap in knowledge of experts and common people still exists. Science communication, therefore, has crucial role of initiating national development efforts by motivating people to embrace science and technology.
It also strives to increase understanding and appreciation of science and technology as useful ways of understanding modern world as well as for informed decision making. Another important role of science communication is empowering people with authentic knowledge and skills for sustainable development, he added

The Tribune, now published from Chandigarh, started publication on February 2, 1881, in Lahore (now in Pakistan). It was started by Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia, a public-spirited philanthropist, and is run by a trust comprising four eminent persons as trustees.
The Tribune, the largest selling English daily in North India, publishes news and views without any bias or prejudice of any kind. Restraint and moderation, rather than agitational language and partisanship, are the hallmarks of the paper. It is an independent newspaper in the real sense of the term.
The Tribune has two sister publications, Punjabi Tribune (in Punjabi) and Dainik Tribune (in Hindi).
