Allama Iqbal Open University (AIOU) will facilitate its students who take part in the ‘Green Pakistan’ movement by doing maximum tree plantation in their respective regions.
The university regularly arranges tree-plantation events at its 44 regional campuses so all regional heads have been advised to involve maximum number of students in tree plantation campaign at the divisional and district level, said Vice-Chancellor Dr Shahid Siddiqui while planting saplings of ‘faux’ at the backside of the University’s Gateway block.
AIOU, he said, has always been on the forefront in the national-level plantation campaign. It motivates the students and faculty members to plant saplings at their respective working and residential places.
The AIOU being a mega educational institution with around 1.3 million students, wished to play an active role in developing a green Pakistan.
