IUS Participates in Mass Afforestation of Canton Sarajevo


International University of Sarajevo is proud to take part in the mass afforestation campaign in Canton Sarajevo. Acting as a socially responsible institution and supporting the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) during the SDG Week 2022, IUS invited its staff and students to give their contribution to the Sarajevo cantonal government initiative of planting 500,000 trees at environmentally vulnerable areas.

Acting in collaboration with the Cantonal Public Company „Sarajevo-šume“ a number of IUS staff members went on Thursday, October 13, to Mountain Igman to plant the seedlings that were provided by „Sarajevo-šume.“ IUS staff was guided and instructed by the host on the planting method and ideal locations and we can proudly say that during the two-hour stay, IUS staff planted more than 100 seedlings of spruce.

This is an ongoing, weather-permitting event, and IUS calls on its students and staff to recognize the importance of this campaign and to take a more active role in reaching the goal of planting half-a-million trees in order to protect our environment and create a better and healthier future.
