The freshman batch of Symbiosis School of Banking and Finance, took a small step towards changing the face of the earth, by organizing a tree plantation drive on 16 July, 2019 (Tuesday). Considering the manifold benefits of trees and the degrading state of the planet, this was a small step by the students to raise awareness and contribute their part, at Symbiosis International University, hilltop campus, Lavale. The event witnessed active participation by students, staff and the esteemed faculty members. The staff and the 'kakas' were specially appreciated by the students and faculty for helping them make this event a grand success. Although SIU Lavale is a lush green campus, steps like these, are the need of the hour, not just on 'Environment Day', but on a regular basis. Co-existing with the flora and fauna has always been the culture of Symbiosis and these initiatives just prove to be cherry on top. Pictures of the event show that the students of SSBF are not about the trending 'Faceapp' but more about changing the 'Face' of the earth.
Tree Plantation Drive was held on 27th of August 2018, by students of Symbiosis School of Banking and Finance. The Symbiosis, Lavale campus is filled with lush greenery and is a health promoting campus. The students, staff and management strongly believe in the coexistence of humans with the flora and fauna that the campus has to offer. The tree plantation drive showed that it is not important to plant trees only on Environment Day to keep the environment pollution free, but that this initiative can be taken up for a better life on a regular basis. The students were taken to hill base of Symbiosis hills where they, along with the faculty and staff, assembled near the rain water harvesting reservoir. Next, they took a mini trek up the Lavale hills to plant saplings at various locations at the hills. The drive had active participation of the students and director, Dr. Manisha Ketkar along with the faculty of SSBF. The event tells us that taking care of our environment and being responsible for it should be a part of life. Finally, there was a happy picture taken after a successful event.
“There is no best time to plant a tree. It should be done as quickly as possible.” All of us have a duty towards the earth that is to sustain it’s greenery and to not destroy the trees that give us our basic need that we require for survival, which is oxygen.
As the first initiative for the academic year 2016-2017, the ISR committee undertook a tree plantation drive on the 1st of July, 2016 in the campus itself at 9:15 a.m. Trees were planted near the academic block and the parking space of Symbiosis School of Banking and Finance. All the faculty members, non-teaching staff and the director of the institute along with the students of the committee actively and enthusiastically participated in this drive. At 9:15 a.m. two members each from the junior committee and senior committee along with the head of the ISR committee, Dilip Sir went to receive our director, Manisha Ketkar Ma’am to flag off the tree plantation drive. The first tree was planted by our director ma’am and subsequently all the teaching, non-teaching and admin staff also planted the trees. First, the trees were planted near the academic block of the institution and later we all proceeded towards the parking area where two more trees were planted by the teaching faculty of the institution. The ISR committee has taken upon itself to maintain and take care of the trees planted in the premises as a part of the social responsibility of the institution to contribute towards the greenery of this beautiful campus and also discharging our duty towards mother nature. After the plantation program, photos were clicked in order to cherish this beautiful memory.
On behalf of the ISR committee, we would like to thank director ma’am, teaching, non-teaching and the admin staff who spared some time from their busy schedule, for their support and enthusiastic participation, which helped us make the first event of this academic year a great success.
