Global warming majorly caused by deforestation is taking its toll on the planet. Many technologies are being implemented to solve these problems of global warming, such are the concept of clean-green energy, solar powered projects, etc. We present in this project the programming and implementation of near field communication chips in supporting eco-friendliness and ensuring an effective information dissemination system in the University. This is achieved by embedding the chips with uniform resource locators (URL’s) to access useful departmental websites. These chips were also embedded with posters/flyers or contact/business cards, for digital storage or to be viewed at designated locations. The inbuilt NFC chips makes it possible for the users to interact with the environment just by using an NFC enabled device. This technology requires a little nudge or tap for activation. Once tapped, the chip will automatically transmit or display the data already programmed on it unto the device. In this work, the website which allows students check for important information about staff such as lecture schedule, visiting hours, etc. and also route texts over to staff if the event arises is demonstrated.
