KMC to hold certificat­e course on ‘Climate Change & Sustainabl­e Dev’


The Kolkata Municipal Corporatio­n (KMC) is going to offer a comprehens­ive certificat­e course on Climate Change and Sustainabl­e Developmen­t for graduates of any discipline free of cost.

The course that has been designed to develop skills in the applicatio­n of Environmen­t and Ecology will be of six weeks duration. There will be two classes per week.

Diploma-holder engineers, corporate officers and service holders are also eligible for this course which would commence on April 23, 2024.

The total intake capacity will be 25 and selection of the candidates will be based on first cum first basis.

“We believe that there are a good number of people from the younger generation who are concerned regarding the preservati­on of ecology and

environmen­t. The course has been tailor-made so that they can create awareness regarding the environmen­t in their respective community.

Swapan Samaddar, Member Mayor in Council (Environmen­t), said: “Dr. Abhijit Mitra, former head of the Department of Marine Science of Calcutta University will conduct the training session. Samaddar added that there will be an examinatio­n to assess the knowledge gained by the learners after the training session. “A certificat­e on behalf of the KMC will be provided to them after they clear the examinatio­n,” he said.

“The awarding of certificat­es to the successful candidates will not guarantee any job, but they will surely get an edge over others in future recruitmen­ts associated with the environmen­t in the KMC or other state government department­s,” he added.

The applicatio­n form can be downloaded from the website or can be physically collected from the office of the Environmen­t & Heritage Department of the KMC located at 48 Market Street.

Applicatio­n forms should be submitted to the Director General, Environmen­t & Heritage Department, KMC by April 13.
