Starting from the next academic session, Delhi University students will be required to plant trees, at least one and anywhere in the country during their studies, as part of their curriculum. This has become mandatory for all undergraduate, postgraduate, master’s, and doctoral level students in the following academic session. The university said it was a move that would move from “environmental education to environmental action” at the ground level.
“Planting a tree is part of Delhi University’s new curriculum. From environmental education to environmental work. It is now mandatory for UG, PG, and Ph.D. level students to plant a tree anywhere in the country.” The University of Delhi tweeted.
“Planting millions of suitable trees and creating a natural ecosystem is one of the best ways and this can be achieved faster through the collective participation of students. Every year the University of Delhi accepts thousands of students from different parts of the country and they will be our climate warriors,” said DU Acting Vice-Chancellor Professor PC Joshi.
Professor Joshi said that the program will be scientifically supervised and evaluated by DU universities, departments, and centers.
Head of Interim Venture Capital said that the planting of trees and their subsequent maintenance will create a wonderful supply chain in creating jobs, and will also produce many valuable products that will provide sufficient income at a different level. “It is our responsibility to achieve the sustainable development goals of the United Nations,” he said.
