With Bangladesh losing it greenery at a fast pace, the rush and bustle of the urban life makes it even more difficult for us to stop and think a solution for it. As a spark to minds and a soothing effect to our home or around, Earth Club of NSU is arranging ‘A Tree For Free’ event at its campus from September 14 to September 16. The members of Earth Club will give away 1000 potted plants to the students, administrative members and faculty members of North South University.

Earth Club of NSU initiated in 1996 and has been working, ever since, with workshops, seminars and projects in the environmental sector. It has associated with organizations like JICA, BRAC Kanon, Change and many more to address the growing environmental concerns of the modern world.

This event is being held as part of a series that initiated in 2014 with the sponsorship of the Fashion House ‘Sailor’ of Epillyon Group. Receiving a huge amount of positive response from it, this year the members of the club are bringing ‘A Tree for Free’ with more enthusiasm under the sponsorship of the Asia-based famous social chatting app BeeTalk. Internet Platform Garena launched this social networking app in 2013 and harnessed 10 million users within the first year. It is new in Bangladesh and the first indigenous mobile social network in Southeast Asia that enables users to forge new relationships and join communities based on location and interests.

The event will facilitate free WiFi in the ‘give-away’ booth area and is open to all NSU students with a valid NSU ID. Anyone will receive a plant as soon as they have installed BeeTalk on their phone and are prepared with their installation and university IDs along with name and number.

It is expected that through the sponsors and the participants the event will attain success in spreading the word of awareness for plantation.
