CUT celebrates Arbour month with Dr Blok School
On 15 September 2017, CUT third-year Public Management students joined Dr Blok Secondary School in Heidedal Bloemfontein to celebrate Arbour Month and raise awareness around the essential role trees play in sustainable development and the livelihoods of people and their environment.
Learners also learnt about the impact of littering and its negative effects on the future generations. The youth were also encouraged to participate in tree planting activities and other related environmental educational programmes.
