Bangladesh Poribeshbid Society

A National Platform for All Environmental Graduates in Bangladesh

Govt. Reg. No. S-13643/2021

Brief history

The necessity of a national-level platform for environmental graduates in Bangladesh has long been felt over the last two decades, as many students have graduated in environmental science-related subjects from different universities in Bangladesh since 2002. However, no specific and collective efforts were taken to materialize this dream. Finally, in 2020, a group of environmental graduates has taken forward this dream with a fresh effort and enthusiasm to form a government registered national platform for all environmental graduates in Bangladesh.

At the first meeting on 01 June 2020, the initial idea for establishing the organization was proposed, then a brief outline of the organizations was proposed at the second meeting on 13 June 2020. The Convener committee for the proposed organization was formed in a general meeting held on 20 June 2020. Mr. Mohammad Arifur Rahman was selected as a Convener of the Committee. The Convener committee has prepared the constitution of the society by 24 September 2020. After that the committee has received name clearance for the society on 23 September 2020. Initially, potential members of the society were registered between 30 August to 10 October 2020. Then, the constitution of the society was approved in a general meeting held on 24 October 2020 and a three-member Election Commission was formed in the same general meeting. The Election Commission was led by Mr. Md. Shahinur Rahman Kabir as a Chief Election Commissioner. The election schedule for the first Executive Committee election was declared on 31 October 2020, and subsequently, a 13-member Executive Committee was elected on 21 November 2020.

With the very active role of the Executive Committee members and other members, the Bangladesh Poribeshbid Society was officially registered with the Joint Stock Companies & Firms, Bangladesh on 11th August 2021.

Message From President

A.K.M. Humayan Kabir Dewan

Environment is now one of the words that is used by all types of communities including scientist, businessman, public and private sectors in around the world. It becomes a central issue not only for Bangladesh context as well as in the international debate in the early part of twenty first century. Since 1996, different public and private universities of Bangladesh offer courses for the Environmental Science related Department. But the Environment Graduates are facing lot of challenges to develop their professional careers in this sector due to less professional skills and communications. For these challenges environment graduates felt to establish their own organization to develop academic excellence and professional careers in national and international level. By this visionary thought, Bangladesh Poribeshbid Society established in 2020. Now it is a national platform for all environment graduates of Bangladesh. Beside the professional and educational development, the society always encourage all types of peoples to conserve the integrity and diversity of nature, and to ensure that natural resources are used in an equitable and ecologically sustainable manner. The society always ready to provide any types of support to government and non-government organizations for improving and implementing environment policies, laws and regulations. We always welcome to all environment graduates of Bangladesh in our dream platform.
