An Initiative to Save the Environment

Up-keeping of trees is Important

The Vice-Chancellor planting saplings.

Tree plantation programmes are organized by many institutions, especially during the monsoon season. The aim is to inculcate awareness about the benefits of planting and preserving trees. 

Prof. Maitra being felicitated by Mohan Tori members.
Maulana Abul Kalam Azad University of Technology (MAKAUT), WB also took part in the initiative on the 29th of July, 2019 and the organizer was 'Mohan Tori' club of Bara Jaguli'. The Vice-Chancellor of MAKAUT,  Prof. (Dr.) Saikat Maitra on this occasion said, " It is not enough to plant trees just once a year. It must be done throughout the year and at the same time the saplings must be taken care of." He remembered that he used to build a team and plant trees in the streets and take care of them throughout the year. Although it was not possible to save all the saplings, most of them grew up into trees. 

On this occasion, the Finance Officer of the University Dr. Atri Bhowmik, Registrar   Dr. Partha Pratim Lahiri, Assistant Registrar Mr. Anup Kumar Mukherjee, Advisor Prof. (Dr.) Shubhabrata Roychowdhury and the members of Mohan Tori were present.

Plantations of trees is important as they improve the life and fulfill essential needs of mankind. During photosynthesis, the trees breakdown food materials and consume carbon dioxide. Moreover, trees support life by providing habitat to different species such as squirrels, bees and birds. Trees cleanse the climate by absorbing carbon dioxide from the environment and releasing oxygen. The trees cool the environment through their leaves by absorbing the sun heat. Thus, there occurs cooling in the atmosphere. The trees provide shades to houses and streets. Trees clean the air by absorbing harmful chemicals such as nitrogen oxide and removing dust particles from the air by absorbing them in their leaves. 

Plantation going on at the Haringhata Campus.

satudents participating in
the plantation programme
It is now known to all that trees play an important role in the ecosystem by maintaining ecological balance. Trees hold the soil in which they grow and as a result the fertile top soil is held securely, otherwise it may get drained or washed away in rains and floods. Trees are the natural habitat for many wildlife species. A micro-habitat formed by planting trees can create a green and natural area, and a micro-climate that is healthy for all life forms.

An awareness is created at all parts of the society that tree plantation is the key to save our planet earth and our lives. The path too achieve this objective is to involve the young generation, that is, mainly the students in such activities. They have the spirit and vigor to make the earth greener and reduce all kinds of pollution. Accordingly, the AICTE has directed different Universities/colleges to plant saplings between 1st and 15th August, 2019. Maulana Abul Kalam Azad University of Technology (MAKAUT), WB took this opportunity to take a drive for tree plantation on the 9th of August, 2019 in its beautiful Haringhata Campus at Nadia district. Moreover, the most important aspect of this initiative is  tree plantation was carried out by the new incumbents of the University.  

The newly admitted students of the University, along with the faculties and officials were very much enthusiastic about the porogramme. The participation of the young students was spontaneous and they involved themselves in all related activities.

Prof. Subhabroto Roychowdhury encouraging the students.

These programmes can give the message that tree plantation is an important activity to make our environment greener and cleaner. The educational institutions must be given priorities regarding tree plantation. The AICTE has also taken this drive in order to involve the colleges and universities in this initiative. 

The Hon’ble HRD Minister Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal “Nishank” has launched a new campaign “One Student One Tree” on the 20th July. This initiative is in line with the Hon’ble Prime Minister’s idea of a green and healthy environment. This initiative need support of our young dynamic students and teachers. As a responsibility towards mother nature and contribution to this initiative, AICTE recommend every institute to carry out a plantation drive on any suitable day from 1st to 15th August. Diverse species of trees should be planted with focus on minimum water consumption in an eco-friendly manner. Also, this trees should have suitable utility in the nearby area. Each Student should plant at least 1 tree. Either students or suitable person from the institute should look after this planted trees for initial 1 to 2 years. Institutes will be awarded based on suitable criteria for this plantation drive on 5th September (Teachers' Day) by Honorable HRD Minister. In the near future, further information will be demanded by AICTE regarding survival rate of these trees. The AICTE urges to make “One Student One Tree” initiative a huge success.
