Students beautify town streets in volunteer campaign

Sixty Birzeit University students planted 35 trees in the areas leading to campus as part of a green campaign led by the students together with the Birzeit Municipality on Saturday, February 23, 2019. 

Aided by a team of staff members from the university and the municipality, the students planted and watered the trees and cleaned the pavement leading to the university’s eastern entrance in an act of community engagement — one of the many carried out by the university’s community. 

Ghada Omari, the volunteer program coordinator at Birzeit University, asserted ”This tree planting is only the first step in a campaign to clean and beautify the various areas in Birzeit.”
