UMT Greens Becomes Greener

Friday, April 20, 2018

Students of the Department of Political Science have contributed more than one hundred trees to UMT Greens. The tree plantation project was the brainchild of Dr Fatima Sajjad who is the resource person of the course on 'Environmental Politics'. She designed the third course activity which taught students environmental activism; negotiation, advocacy and meaningful engagement with the general public. Dr Fatima Sajjad, who has also been shortlisted for the Best HEC Teacher Award and is a prolific writer designed this project in collaboration with UMT Horticulture / OCMS to make the campus greener by planting shady trees beside UMT walkways and sitting areas (benches).

The students’ initiative was greatly supported by Dr Muhammad Aslam, Rector UMT, who inaugurated the event by planting a tree himself. Dr Rukhsana Kausar, Dean SSS&H, Dr Muhammad Shoaib Pervez, Chairperson, Department of Political Science, and Dr Fatima Sajjad also planted fully grown trees.
