DBIM students plant tree saplings for Environment Protection

Learning to live in harmony with Mother Earth on a genuinely sustainable basis, the HR club of Don Bosco Institute of Management (DBIM) on 12th Nov’ 2016 organized a community tree plantation drive to sensitize students on the value of tree plantation.

The plantation drive was observed to create awareness about environmental problems the world is facing due to degradation of nature and rampant deforestation which has affected the ecological balance. Fr. Johnson Parackal, Executive Director of DBI, addressed the gathering of students and members of the local community. He highlighted the necessity of preserving and caring for nature and drew an analogy between the little saplings to young children who needed the same amount of love and care to grow up.

Sr. Anna Molly, who was the Chief Guest of the program, also spoke about the significance to give a human face to environmental issues; empower people to become active agents of sustainable and equitable development; and promote an understanding that communities are pivotal to changing attitudes towards environmental issues.
The students distributed fifty fruit bearing saplings to the local families and also planted a few in the institute campus. Fr. Johnson motivated the students to plant more and more trees in order to make the surroundings green and also implored them to frequently conduct such plantation drives in the future.

The drive helped to encourage the public to actively participate in preserving the ecology and also keep their environment clean and healthy to lead a better life. Both students and teachers feel proud of being attached in the social action project of the institute.
