Team Ranbhoomi 2020 conducted a tree plantation drive at IIM Indore on October 20, 2019. Ranbhoomi is the annual sports fest of Five Years Integrated Programme in Management, scheduled on January 31-February 02, 2020. It is the largest sports fest of Central India & the only undergraduate sports fest conducted by any IIM. The event was conducted in association with AASHA – the IPM Social Club which conducts social activities at the campus. Thirty volunteers including students as well as faculty and staff members took part in plantation. The trees planted belonged to the Palumaria Champak species. It is a small flowering tree with aromatic flowers making it suitable and safe to be planted around building areas.
IIM Indore has also introduced a no plastic policy and is working towards a sustainable campus environment. The plantation drive was conducted by Ranbhoomi keeping in line with the institute’s initiative and as a contribution to the green cover in Indore. The event hit the right chord with the participants who enthusiastically took this opportunity to spend some time with nature.
