Welcome to the Yashwantrao Chavan Maharahtra Open University's New Concept

वृक्ष म्हणजे जीवन - वृक्ष देतात फुले फळे  !
वृक्ष देतात - पाउस, पाणी,  थंडावा, वृक्षच देतात अन्न वस्त्र आणि निवारा !
आणि सर्वात महत्वाचं म्हणजे वृक्ष शोषून घेतात वातावरणातला कार्बन.... त्यामुळे जास्तीत जास्त वृक्ष लावण्यासाठी पुढे आलं पाहिजे ''आपण'' !! वृक्ष लावून...पृथ्वीला संजीवनी द्यायची आहे आपण. म्हणूनच - आपलं यशवंतराव चव्हाण महाराष्ट्र मुक्त विद्यापीठ  घेऊन येतंय एक  नाविन्यपूर्ण उपक्रम ....  ''योसो'' अर्थात
YCMOU’s One Student One Tree

हिरवे हिरवे गार गालिचे,
हरित तृणांच्या मखमालीचे,
कृतार्थ जीवन या वृक्षांचे,
प्राणवायूचे कोष धरेचे !

In this venture every student has to plant one tree. Nurture the tree for ever.  This way he will immensely contribute to the environment. And after doing this, he will obtain incentive marks. A committee was formed under chairmanship of Dr. Dinesh Bhonde, Registrar, who is a carver of this innovative project. The committee designed the project. All of you are requested to participate in this noble project for our well being and better future of the next generation

Plantation of trees is a priority program globally. YCMOU has launched a similar project to execute with participation of its students.

The title of the project is YOSOT means YCMOU’s – One Student One Tree.

The students participating in this project shall plant one tree each. A photo of the plantation shall be uploaded through the special app developed by the university. Location of the tree shall be automatically recorded through the GPS linkage to the app. The student shall nurture the tree carefully. To ensure that he is taking care of the tree, he will upload it’s photos once every three months. The student successfully growing tree shall get incentive marks at the end of the year.
