As part of the UNICDA Sostenible program, our students participated in a tree planting day on behalf of each student graduating this year. This reforestation activity took place in the Humedales del Ozama National Park and its main purpose was to encourage students and members of the academic community the active participation in environmental projects and the culture of sustainability as a strategy to maintain in good condition the natural environment and resources that are essential for life.
This type of action is part of the plans implemented by our university to encourage its students to contribute to sustainability. Likewise, UNICDA pursues goals 13, Climate Action, and 15, Life of Terrestrial Ecosystems, of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development of the United Nations General Assembly.
The event was attended by the Technical Environmental Educator of the Ministerio de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales, Ana Luisa Lugo; and on behalf of our university, our Chancellor, Ramón Sosa; the Academic Vice Chancellor, Dr. Laura Reyes; the Coordinator of the Bachelor’s Degree in English oriented to Teaching, Ligia Henríquez; the Coordinator of Systems Engineering and Software Engineering, Carlos Núñez; the Head of the Guidance Department, Lucía Zimbrón; the Education professor, César Santil, and the Professional Ethics professor and Head of Extension Services, Ms. Karina Taveras.
