Little Flower College has always prioritised the betterment of the society at large in all its activities right from the time of its initiation in 1955. The college had adopted practices that nourish the social and ecological sensibilities of the students, faculty and stakeholders and thereby that of the society around. The institution has identified two major best practices:
- Facilitating social consciousness towards eco sensibility.
Concerns about the environment has reached its zenith with the ever increasing troubles caused by climate change, pollution and the over exploitation of natural resources. The college has made it a point to create awareness and carry out productive activities that would heighten the cause of sustenance of our planet. Eco sensibility is considered a core value and best practice and the campus presents a commendable model with its eco sustainable premises. The college performs several activities that lead to the preservation and protection of nature on a large scale. The rainwater harvesting system, bio gas plant, vermi compost unit aiding our waste management and manure needs etc aid in reducing carbon foot prints and helps in effective bio waste management cycle. The verdant campus rich with its variegated fauna itself is an example of the ecological consciousness that we cherish. Students are encouraged to discard plastic products including plastic water bottles and lunch carriers and to use steel containers instead. Swap shops are arranged by some departments to help effective recycling and reuse of products thus reducing garbage dumping and wastage of resources.
Apart from these in -campus activities, the college also adopts various programs that help in spreading ecological consciousness among the neighbouring community. Surveys and awareness campaigns are done among the local community with in connection with ecology and data with regard to the lack of or richness of natural resources in the locality is collected. Cleaning drives are undertaken to unclog the local water bodies and canals thus reducing pollution and the spread of epidemics. Surveys to analyse the biodiversity of the area and the condition of the water bodies are also done thus making the students and the local people aware of their own locality and its environmental advantages and disadvantages.
The UNATH BHARATH ABHIYAN program initiated by the MHRD was taken up with great vigour by the campus and several activities were held in connection with it.
