As per the directions of Prime Minister of Islamic Republic of Pakistan, the event on the theme of “Plantation Campaign” was jointly organized by the volunteers in Service (VIS) CUST, Office of the Chief Commissioner Islamabad and Helping Hand for Relief and Development. The event was held on Tuesday 19th March, 2019. The guest team members from Office of the Chief Commissioner Islamabad and Helping Hand for Relief and Development supported the idea of plantation campaign.
The guest team briefed the students about benefits of trees. Trees are a good source of food, energy and income to help communities achieve long-term economic and environmental sustainability. Trees also filter the air and help reverse the impacts of climate change. Planting trees strengthens local economies. Trees contribute to environment by providing oxygen, improving air quality, climate amelioration, conserving water, preserving soil, and supporting wildlife.
Faulty members viz Director Student Affairs, Dr. Muhammad Sagheer, Dr. Fazal ur Rehman and Dr. Mazhar also participated. More than 100 students of CUST participated in this campaign and planted more than 700 trees.
