trees and shrubs were planted by HSE students and staff as part of the ‘Green mobilization’ campaign.

Despite the rainy weather last Sunday, a team from the Green HSE student environmental movement, volunteers from the Best Buddies HSE club, as well as HSE students and staff planted trees on the grounds of the neuropsychiatric care facility No. 25 in the West Degunino district.

From May 13 to 21, anyone can plant a tree or shrub on the grounds of Moscow’s social facilities – schools, preschools, clinics and neuropsychiatric care facilities, and veterans’ homes. The organizers of the campaign is Mospriroda, a publically funded conservation organization in Moscow.
