The National Environmental Management Authority (NEMA) has done a great job in ensuring that institutions of higher learning in Uganda prioritize sustainable development through their mandate of teaching, research and community service.
Bugema University (BU) is among the many institutions of higher learning in Uganda that have benefited from NEMA’s Mainstreaming Environment and Sustainable Development Issues in University Academic and Non Academic Programmes sensitization and capacity building programs. Owing to this sensitization program, Bugema University Administration was able to reinvigorate environment and sustainability activities by joining the rest of the world to commemorate Green Consumer Day that comes every 28th day of September every year. BU dedicated a week full of activities that included ecosystem restoration with more than 300 indigenous tree species planted on campus and forest reserve.
