On January 24, 2020, Gaurav Shukla of Dreamz Unlimited Foundation, Divya Tyagi of URI Tronica City, and Morgana Sythove of the URI Environmental Network and URI Netherlands (all URI Cooperation Circles, or member groups), were invited to join the pupils of the Delhi Public School, Sahibabad for a tree planting celebration. 

The principal, Mrs Yogita Kapil, along with the teachers, described their school as a "green school." In order to be environmentally friendly, they are encouraging the pupils to use cloth bags and rucksacks to carry books and to avoid using plastic.

They have already planted a number of trees and many other plants on the school grounds. During the day of the celebration, each of the seven classes from the 4th to 10th grade helped to plant more trees.
