About the event

December 4, 9.00 - 10.20 MSK

Every year, the Global No Pesticides Use Day is celebrated on December 3. This day was chosen to commemorate the environmental disaster that occurred on December 3, 1984 at a pesticide plant in Bhopal, India.

The purpose of the event of the Department of Foreign Languages ​​is to attract the attention of students to the problem of production and use of pesticides that pose a threat to the environment and human health.

To achieve this goal, the following tasks were set:

  • To give students a general idea of ​​what pesticides are, what categories they are divided into;
  • To introduce students to the pros and cons of using pesticides;
  • To explain the harm caused by its use to the environment;
  • To suggest alternatives to pesticides in agriculture.

Online

Students of 2-3 courses will take part in the Global No Pesticides Use Day. The program includes presentations of students with reports on the topic of the event, watching educational videos, a discussion about whether it is possible to stop using pesticides, whether there are alternatives that are less harmful to the environment.
