Students must plant 10 trees before they graduate in the Philippines

May 31, 2019 12:10 IST

If you're planning to attend college in Philippines, there's a new duty you would be required to fulfill in order to graduate. All graduating students from colleges and high schools are now required to plant at least 10 trees before they can graduate, according to a new Filipino law. The move is an attempt to combat global climate change. If the legislation is properly adhered to, it could result in 525 billion trees being planted in a single generation. Indigenous species of plants are preferred and will be selected according to location and topography of the area, as per the government mandate. Massive deforestation is a grave concern in the country and this landmark law can potentially help fight it.
