Use These Rains To Plant More Trees, Activists

Activists have urged Ugandans to use the current rains to plant more trees. The CEO of Great Outdoors, Leonard Mutesasira said that as part of their efforts to replenish the environment, they are mobilizing the public to start planting trees in reasonable numbers.

“The rains have started and this is the right time for tree planting to start. We call upon communities to play a role in saving our environment by planting over one million trees between 2022 and 2023.  We ask communities to ensure a tree is planted every day,” Mutesasira said.

He also said that they celebrate the international tree planting day is always on March 24 every year. This year they decided to celebrate it on April, 30.

On the 30th, Great Outdoors will have a forest run, nature tour, wellness advisory, and conservation talks. They will also do a tree-planting drive at their eco-friendly forest resort along Gayaza road.

Meanwhile, the UN assembly set aside a day to celebrate and raise awareness of the importance of all types of forests. In 2012, the UN proclaimed March 21st  every year as the international day of forests.

These days, more trees are planted to make sure the environment is as reserved as it should be. However, the Collaborative Partnership on Forests (CPF) chooses the theme for each international day of forests.
