The Green Ghana Day was introduced in 2021, by H.E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo as part of an aggressive national afforestation/reforestation programme to restore the lost forest cover of Ghana and to contribute to the global effort to mitigate climate change. The maiden edition was held on June 11 2021, where an estimated 7million tree seedlings were planted across the nation.
The 2022 edition of the Green Ghana Day was launched on 1st March, 2022 by the President of the Republic under the theme “Mobilizing for a Greener Future” with a target to plant at least 20 million tree seedlings on the 2022 Green Ghana Day – 10th June 2022.
The initiative forms part of the efforts by the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources (MLNR) and the Forestry Commission to encourage Ghanaians to plant more trees to preserve and protect the country’s forest cover and the environment in general.
