10 JULY 2018
Globally, forest covers one-third less than what it once was and global deforestation continues at 13 million hectares per year. This indiscriminate falling of trees threatens the environmental health and sustainability of communities in the rural and urban milieu. Social forestry needs to be undertaken on a large scale to reverse the ill effects of deforestation and restore the ecological balance. It will also contribute towards creating a carbon sink and increasing green cover.
MATS Institute of Management and Entrepreneurship (MIME) has been conducting various activities through its CSR Club to contribute to this wonderful initiative. In this series, the tree plantation program was organized in Madiwala Lake, BTM Layout, Bengaluru, in collaboration with Eco-Watch and Weather seal on a mission “to build oxygen hubs” on 10 July 2018. The MIME CSR club also joined the government initiative to plant one billion trees over 10 years.
Students and faculty members actively participated and planted various varieties of trees such as the Banyan tree, Neem tree, Peepal tree, Oaktree, Mango tree at Madiwala Lake.
