Core Action Plans for the event are planting trees on the premises of each selected university, formulating a group of students and a team leader to plant and mother trees.

It was also planned to accelerate the youth leadership to plant and nurse trees, and to monitor and evaluate the growth of trees in significant times by advisory boards, provide awards in recognition to the successful group of students as Youth Green Leader and promote social awareness of the green environment by the engagement of the youth community.
