A Peace-walk was also held starting from the entrance Gate of the university to Junaid Zaidi Central Library, to mark the day of Yom-e-Shohada by remembering the sacrifices of martyrs in defense of Pakistan.
Earlier on 14th August 2018, at the occasion of the 71st Independence Day, CUI launched the first phase of this tree plantation drive in collaboration with Capital Development Authority (CDA) and Metropolitan Corporation, Islamabad, in which around 2,500 trees were planted at the site of Koral Chowk. In total, over 30,000 trees were planted by CUI’s seven campuses including Islamabad, Lahore, Wah, Attock, Sahiwal, Vehari and Abbottabad.
On the occasion, the Rector CUI, Prof. Dr. Raheel Qamar, expressed his commitment to protecting the environment by providing care for the plants for two years so that the plants become stable. He also encouraged the youth and asserted the important role of universities and educational institutions in inculcating the spirit of volunteerism and community building through such activities.
