Our University contributes fresh air into the region!
Our university and Elazığ Regional Directorate of Forestry have made a protocol to plant a tree sapling on behalf of every student within the university.
Fırat University has showed its difference once again and carried out a very important work of awareness while Turkey has been combating wildfires that have been damaging the lungs of Turkey for almost a week.
Thanks to the protocol made between our university and Elazığ Regional Directorate of Forestry, the tree saplings will be planted on behalf of the students at Fırat University by making a total of 46.000 tree saplings. The fieldwork is about to be completed to plant the tree saplings.
Fırat University, currrently among the largest and greenest universities in Turkey, will provide fresh air for both Elazığ and Turkey with these new saplings.
Making a statement on the subject, our University Rector Prof. Dr. Fahrettin Göktaş said, “Within the scope of the protocol signed with the Elazig Regional Directorate of Forestry, we will plant a sapling for each of our students, a total of 46 thousand saplings, in 2021. Our fieldwork is about to be completed. May it be a gift to our green Turkey, our beautiful Elazig, our forest fire martyrs. ”
