Climate Change is the most discussed issue of our time and we are at a defining moment. From shifting weather patterns that threaten food production, to rising sea levels that increase the risk of catastrophic flooding, the impacts of climate change are global in scope and unprecedented in scale.
Without strong actions today, adapting to these impacts in the future will be more difficult and costly. Planting more and more trees is one of the first and foremost actions for human beings to reduce these impacts of climate change. But it is a matter of regret that over 55,600 trees are dying every minute in our world and the number is increasing day by day.
For raising awareness BITS organized a one-day long event entitled ‘Ecospree 2019’ where participants from every age group participated in exhibitions and seminar at Women’s Voluntary Association (WVA) at Dhanmondi-27 in the capital recently.
