"Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago"
- Warren Buffet
Our Director with a sapling
Planting a tree is an easy yet effective way to make a positive impact on the environment. Today, when rise in global warming is a reality, our planet needs more trees than ever. IMT Hyderabad took a step towards contributing to a healthy environment by organizing a tree plantation drive in the premises of the IMT Hyderabad campus on 21nd August 2019.
Team Pahel, the social club of IMT-Hyderabad unfolded the drive as they gently placed the first sapling in the soil, while their friends cheered them on. The joy of being a part of such a noble cause was evident as there were smiles on everyone’s face during the drive. The tree plantation drive also proved to be a great opportunity for everyone present to learn the nuances of the skill of planting a tree.

Over 300 saplings of different varieties of trees were planted around the cricket ground, beside the academic block and near the hostels.
