Istanbul Medeniyet University Sends a Breath to the Future


The planting campaign simultaneously held at 11:11 on 11.11.2019 in all corners of Turkey was supported on behalf of our University by Rector Prof. Dr. Gülfettin Çelik, University management, academic and administrative staff and our students. We planted saplings in our Orhanlı Campus as part of the “Breath to the Future” event for meeting 11 million saplings with soil initiated by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry to raise awareness for the environment and leave a greener future to future generations.

In the speech he delivered before the planting ceremony, Rector Prof. Dr. Gülfettin Çelik underlined the importance of protecting nature and said: “It is essential to live life in for dimensions. Man should perceive life in their animate and inanimate, natural and physical environment in its entirety. As Istanbul Medeniyet University, we seek to contribute to reintroducing nature back into human life, the lack of which has become a common global problem.“ The Rector expressed his pleasure in convening with our members for this significant event and his wish that the saplings planted will be the start of a “Medeniyet Grove” in the near future.
