"Social Responsibilities and Ethical Framework" - A Special Programme Organized by JLU School of Humanities and Social Science

Social responsibility is an ethical theory, in which individuals are responsible for meeting their civic duty; the unfolding of an individual must benefit the whole of society. In this way, there must be a balance between economic growth and the welfare of society and the environment. If this equilibrium is maintained, then social responsibility is accomplished.

A program on social responsibilities and ethical framework was organized by JLU – School of Humanities and Social Science on 9th January 2019. The program was conducted with the mission of enlightening the students regarding their social responsibilities to bring forth a better youth.  Various NGOs working within Bhopal on multiple social causes were invited to the university precinct to interact with the students studying the disciplines of English Literature, Psychology, Public Administration and Political Science. They pointed out the significance of social responsibilities.

Moral values that are inherent in society create a distinction between right and wrong. In this way, social fairness is believed (by most) to be in the “right”, but more frequently than not this “fairness” is absent. Every individual has a responsibility to act in a manner that is beneficial to society and not solely to the individual.

NGO’s like Kartavya and Peoples for Animal, which is also known as PFA, India's largest animal welfare organization along with Ms Riddhi Paliwal and Mrs Swati Bhadoria and her team of diligent and vigilant volunteers came from across the city informed the students about the challenges of establishing and running an NGO.

During the program, the questions were flooded by the students to the speakers with queries and internship requests. They were presented with a memento by the Director of the School to thank them for their valuable contribution in the society.
