Partnership with Rotary E-Club of Lahore International for the cultivation of "Miyawaki Forests" at UET-New Campus, under Green Pakistan Initiative

To achieve the goal of a green Pakistan, a delegation from the internationally renowned Rotary E-Club, Lahore visited the UET New Campus and met with Campus Coordinator Prof. Dr. Tanveer Iqbal to make the "Miyawaki Forests" project successful. During the meeting, the President Rotary E-Club of Lahore International, Engr. Bilal Asghar and Engr. Danish Jaffery, who were part of the delegation, highlighted that the "Japanese Miyawaki" method is a new technique, under which there are four plants grown in one meter radius near to each other, that makes trees growth 10 times faster than normal planting. He said that Rotary E-Club had already donated more than 300 plants in April 2021 and would continue to donate more plants in collaboration with the university to expand the "Miyawaki Forest". Prof. Dr. Tanveer Iqbal, Coordinator, UET New Campus, thanked the delegation of Rotary E-Club for contributing for the dream of a green Pakistan and appreciated their commitment. He also hoped that with the joint cooperation of the two institutions, further steps will be taken to improve the environment in Pakistan by expanding the scope of "Miyawaki Forests" project. At UET-New Campus, Jaman, Moringa, Bakcain, Guava and some other native species are planted. Services of university’s Horticulturist Mr. Ali Raza have been appreciated and responsibility of monitoring & proper maintenance of "Miyawaki Forest" project at UET-New Campus assigned to him.
