To help improve the ecological system of Ghana, through forestation, reforestation and tree-growing, and in commemoration of this year’s International Day of Forests, a campaign dubbed: ‘One Man, One Tree’ was, yesterday, launched in Accra.
The occasion, which was organized by the Forestry Commission (FC) in collaboration with the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources, formed part of activities marking this year’s Forestry Week celebrations.
The celebrations, the fourth in a series, started with an inter-school quiz competition dubbed: ‘Catch Them Young’, which aimed to test the knowledge of the students on forestry issues and to sensitize the youth, as future policy makers, on the need to act responsibly to protect the forests.
Achimota Senior High School (SHS) emerged winners in the competition in which, Amasaman Technical High School, Ghanatta SHS and Presbyterian Boys SHS participated.
Other activities lined up for the celebration are a National Colloquium on Forests Investment Opportunities and Climate Change and a Workshop on Legal Education on Forests and Wildlife.
The celebration will be climaxed with a Grand Durbar and Greening Ghana Day.
