On the 20th of October, 2019 students of IPM programme of IIM Indore organized a Tree Plantation Drive on campus. The Tree Plantation Drive was organized by team Ranbhoomi 6.0, IIM Indore’s Sports Fest to be held from 31st January to 2nd February 2010. Ranbhoomi is Central India’s Largest Sports Fest and the only undergraduate sports fest conducted by any IIM. The event was conducted in association with AASHA - the IPM Social Club which conducts social activities at the IIMI campus on the regular.
30 volunteers including students as well as faculty and staff members took part in the the task of planting the trees. The trees planted belonged to the Palumaria Champak species. It is a small flowering tree with aromatic flowers making it suitable and safe to be planted around building areas.
IIM Indore has introduced a no plastic policy and is working towards a sustainable campus environment. The plantation drive was conducted by Ranbhoomi keeping in line with the institute’s initiative and as a contribution to the green cover in Indore.
The event hit the right chord with the students who enthusiastically took this opportunity to spend some time with nature, away from the intense pressure of studies.
