Monday, Aug 13th 2018: To mark its Pre-Independence Day celebration, KSBL conducted its plantation drive ‘Brace the Green’ at a nearby park in the city. The team cultivated plants, to combat escalating temperature. Besides creating awareness among students to save the environment this initiative was also carried out to encourage them to celebrate the spirit of freedom by becoming closer to nature.
The city has been under the spell of harsh weather conditions since the beginning of summer this year. Moreover there have been various heat waves also witnessed by the citizens which have resulted in casualties and made it difficult for them to go on with their regular activities. Considering the severity of the situation the requirement of such measures has become important that not only positively influence the environment but also in the long run make the weather more pleasant.
Speaking on the occasion Dr. Zeeshan Ahmed (Dean KSBL) and Dr. Athar Siddiqui (Director Degree Programs) said that rising temperature is a serious issue that is being confronted by our city and there is a crucial need for more such initiatives to be taken in future also.
