Tree Plantation was carried out at IBA Main Campus
A Tree Plantation was carried out at IBA on 25th October 2017 at IBA Main Campus to promote horticulture and create sustainable Campus with the joint efforts of Administrative Team of IBA and "Go Green Society". IBA students, staff and faculty had whole heartedly joined for such a wonderful cause. Besides tree plantation, Organic Garden concept was introduced for the benefit of all. This concept will promote "Kitchen Garden "and promote a healthy culture in reducing environmental pollution.
IBA is proud to announce for winning a 1st prize in the recent "COP in My City Islamabad 2017 - UN Climate Change negotiations simulation". Ms Hebah Essa, Manager - IBA Go Green Society, won the first prize out of total 50 participants, from 22 top Universities of Pakistan. 2nd position was also bagged by our IBA student Abdullah. Both have been selected to represent Pakistan and IBA by accompanying the official delegation of Pakistan to COP-23 in Bonn, Germany 2017. Mr Ali and Ms Laila had also participated for this competition under the patron of Society Mr. Mohsin Patel and Ms. Nadia Saeed.
Our aim is high "To Go Green" block by block at IBA. There is a plethora of benefits of planting the trees, from health to environmental impact, to economics and even psychological effects. Planting and then maintaining trees helps lower energy costs, reduce pollution, improves IBA surrounding with green ambience and brings happiness for all of us.
Automobile traffic, manufacturing and other human activities are playing havoc with our environment. I urge upon all of you to reduce global warming simply by planting more trees at IBA environment and within your immediate vicinity.
All students and staff are encouraged to plant more fruit/Shade tree just with your little efforts. It doesn't make bigger belief that without trees, we humans would not exist on this beautiful earth. So, trees are vital for life. You will witness greenery, fruits and surely walk around very peacefully under the shade of a Tree. All IBA footpaths will be covered with beautiful "Gulmohar" Trees just in near future.
A lot of enthusiasm prevails now with the present generation of students. As we know, a tree life is 100 plus years. Please join us in giving life to a Tree at IBA whenever such an event is planned at IBA in near future. While IBA Administrative Team will take care of the Trees that you will plant here. It's a wonderful cause. Last time, we had carried out a Tree Plantation at City Campus. The success is 100 % since all Trees have survived due to a constant care of these plants by hard working gardeners and supervisors. It's a continuous process and your participation is expected in future.
