New Delhi, July 2023.

Nothing is more delightful than watching one’s fledgling soar to heights. World University of Design experienced something similar as their fourth year student of School of Architecture – Ms. Ramisa Yasmin has been awarded with the title of IGBC Accredited Professional – Associate by the Indian Green Building Council of India.

The achievement added yet another feather in WUD’s hat, giving them their first certified green architect. Abiding by NEP 2020 guidelines, WUD, since its inception has employed and adopted various Sustainability Goals so as to not just help students build rewarding careers but also contribute in the making of a greener and brighter future. As part of this intent, the School of Architecture initiated an IGBC student chapter on campus encouraging undergraduates to observe sustainable ideologies, providing them with an ecosystem that intrinsically conditions their minds to think ‘green’ while building the nation and henceforth, the world.

Honoured with the recognition, Dr. Sanjay Gupta – Vice Chancellor, WUD shared his views as, “Sustainability is the strongest driving force today all over the world and at WUD we will be making all efforts to make it a part of our academic ecosystem. Very happy to share our first Green Building Professional, our fourth year Architecture student, Ramisa Yasmin. Congratulations to her and to the School of Architecture that took up the initiative of starting the IGBC student chapter here.

We belong to a world that is fast depleting in its resources, alternatives and reductions are the need of the hour along with creation of models that are self-sustaining and do not impose extreme pressure on the already existing systems. Universities like WUD are a ray of hope for a better tomorrow as they believe that progress cannot be considered so until it accommodates the very existence of nature.
