Open University as/and Ecosystem
Open University as/and Ecosystem, NETAJI SUBHAS OPEN UNIVERSITY, Opening of the Kalyani Campus, Regional Centre, Green Campus and Biovillage, 15 April 2005 Remarks by: Sir John Daniel, President & CEO, Commonwealth of Learning // I have had great pleasure taking part in this most enjoyable ceremony, which comes a day after I became a member of the Netaji Subhas Open University community through the award of an honorary degree, and two days after I tried to explain the global significance of the work of NSOU in my Endowment Lecture. This new Kalyani Campus is a lovely place and I am honoured that my name will remain associated with it on the foundation stones that we have just unveiled. // May I begin by congratulating the Minister of Public Works of West Bengal for undertaking the construction of the buildings that will spring up here? My thanks go also to the Government of West Bengal for its financial contribution to NSOU and to this project. // We have inaugurated and celebrated four initiatives this morning and I shall comment briefly on each of them.
