Educate and plant
As part of the programming, the university students planted six trees, to which they placed their own names. This symbolic part of the planting was directed by Bartola Jiménez, professor of Environmental Engineering, who mentioned:
"We as environmental engineers are committed to taking care of the environment and raising awareness among people and the community where we live on the importance of our environment."
Finally, the exhibition of several projects made with recyclable material by the students was inaugurated, which through this action implemented the 5Rs (Recycle, Reuse, Reduce, Reject and Reeducate).
