OUR UNIVERSITY BECOMES "A BREATH TO THE FUTURE" AS SAPLINGS MEET WITH SOIL
Within the scope of the “Breath to the World, Breath to the Future” campaign initiated by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry in 81 cities and welcomed with interest throughout the country, the saplings were planted in the forestation area within the campus area of our university.
Saplings were planted with the participation of academic and administrative staff at 11.11 at the sapling planting ceremony, which was held in order to develop the love of trees and forests in our country, to contribute to the environmental awareness of all segments of the society and to raise awareness about the environment.
Our Rector Prof. Dr. Ahmet Karadağ, Vice Rectors Prof. Dr. Şenol Akın, Prof. Dr. Güngör Yılmaz, Secretary General Prof. Dr. Uğur Kölemen and academic and administrative staff of our university participated in the ceremony.
Our Rector Prof. Dr. Ahmet Karadağ stated that the planting activity started with the "Breath to the Future" campaign in 81 cities simultaneously at 11.11 was very meaningful.
In his speech, our Rector recalled the hadith of our Prophet, "Plant the sapling in your hand, even if you know that Doomsday will break," and stated that our history, inspired by this hadith, pays attention to the trees and green. Our Rector Prof. Dr. Ahmet Karadağ continued his words: “We are members of a religion that pays attention to green and nature. In fact, we will leave a legacy to our grandchildren. This legacy should also be a green world and Turkey. We need to protect nature and the environment in every respect. As Yozgat Bozok University, we work hard to make our campus a more livable green space. Although our land is barren, we will green this place together with our hearts and minds. Yozgat Bozok University community has this sensitivity and environmental awareness. In this respect, if we want a more livable environment and a healthier transfer of our world to the future, we definitely need to protect the green. We need to bring the saplings to the soil at every opportunity we find. We are here today for this purpose. I hope Yozgat Bozok University will have a much greener area with both its eastern and western campuses.
