Green Pledge to plant trees across West Bengal is a celebration of the lifetime. Therefore, on the World Environment Day, Woman Times and MAKAUT have collaborated to plant trees all across West Bengal.
“Woman Times have done a commendable job this year. We accepted their proposal of tree plantation drive across the state through our students and faculty members. Also we believe that we shall further collaborate in similar activities where we do remarkable activities to restore environment”, says the Hon’ble Vice-Chancellor of MAKAUT, W.B, Prof (Dr) Saikat Moitra.
Green is the only answer to a sustainable balanced environment. MAKAUT has been instrumental in promoting environmental awareness and planting trees throughout the year. This year the significance is more and vital. Cyclone AMPHAN has uprooted thousands of trees which can be dangerous for the environment. But this year MAKAUT has targeted 40,000 trees to be planted through their students and faculty members at their respective places.
