With the passage of time, the concept of ethics has become alien to the masses, businesses work with the motive of earning profits irrespective of whether they are ethical in their operations or not. The environment is a victim of their unethical behavior. Such neglect towards the safety of the environment inspired BBB 5B to organize an event, The Marine Groove.
As part of their business ethics course project the students organized this event to show their concern about the environment and its habitats. Sponsored by the World Wild Life Federation (WWF), the event was applauded. It not only provided the students at SZABIST with an opportunity to relax and have fun but was also a beach event with a purpose: to serve the environment.
The revenue generated was donated to charity while some funds were also allocated towards planting mangrove trees on the coastlines in order to protect the mangrove habitat. In total the students in collaboration with WWF planted approximately 20 trees in the WWF Westland's Centre at Sandspit.
The Earth is a gift from God given to humanity, and it is our duty as part of this earth to take the best care of it and make it an environmentally friendly place to live in. The initiative taken by the students of BBA 5B is commendable not only because of its recreational element but because of its contribution towards the revival of the natural wildlife habitat.
Its true then, “Where there’s a will there’s a way!”
