On June 20, 2023, the Cultural, Art and Sports Extension Unit of the San Salvador Campus held a commemoration of International Environment Day at the botanical garden located in the municipality of Antiguo Cuscatlán, in order to raise awareness among the student population with presentations on the benefits of planting ornamental plants and to provide them with the corresponding maintenance.

It is important to mention that the students of the Environmental Health and Bachelor's Degree in Nursing careers created visual material to develop different educative talks; the topics addressed during this event were: climate change, sustainable development objectives, environmental benefits on the protection and care of trees. During the event, they delivered ornamental plants, soil and compost so that the participants could begin the process of planting, monitoring and caring for the plant, with this each student committed to ensure that it remains alive and glowing, in a suitable place for its growth.
