Pan-Atlantic University recently concluded a successful tree planting exercise on its lush campus, fostering a commitment to environmental sustainability and a greener future. The event, made possible by the generous sponsorship of American Towers Corporation of Nigeria and in collaboration with the Nigerian Conservation Foundation (NCF), saw a remarkable display of positive energy and community spirit.
The tree planting exercise, held on July 19th, 2023, brought together staff members from the participating organisations including the Chief Operating Officer of Pan-Atlantic University, Dr Peter Bamkole, Managing Director of ATC Nigeria, Errol Ambler-Smith, and Ms Folake Salawu, the NCF Green Recovery Nigeria Programme Coordinator, all united in their dedication to nurturing the environment and mitigating the impact of climate change. The initiative aligns perfectly with the university’s mission to instill values of social responsibility and environmental consciousness in its community.
With the support of ATC Nigeria, a leading organization known for its corporate social responsibility efforts, Pan-Atlantic University embarked on this impactful journey towards creating a greener and more sustainable campus. The collaboration with NCF, a prominent environmental conservation organization, further enhanced the credibility and impact of the exercise.
With spades in hand and enthusiasm in their hearts, participants eagerly planted a diverse selection of indigenous tree species thoughtfully chosen to thrive in the local ecosystem. The exercise not only contributed to the beauty of the campus but also symbolized a commitment to a sustainable and greener environment for generations to come.
