Article

The 2024 edition of the Green Ghana Day will be marked June 7th, across all districts in the country as part of the government’s quest to combat the menaces of climate change.

Since its inception in 2021, the Green Ghana Day has seen remarkable success, with a total of 42 million trees planted nationwide. This year, the momentum continues as the Ministry, under the leadership of Hon. Samuel A. Jinapor, MP, sets an ambitious target of planting an additional 10 million trees.

During the launch event held in Tamale on Tuesday, April 16, Minister Jinapor underscored the significance of collective action in realizing the goals of the Green Ghana Project. He emphasized the importance of citizen participation and urged all Ghanaians to join hands in making the 2024 Green Ghana Day a resounding success.

The Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) will host a commemorative tree-planting event as part of the Green Ghana Day activities. Minister Jinapor commended the GAF for its pivotal role in implementing various environmental policies and initiatives, highlighting their collaboration in areas such as illegal mining and land conservation.

Lieutenant General Thomas Oppong-Peprah, Chief Of Defence Staff, expressed his commitment to strengthening collaboration between the GAF and the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources. He assured full support from the military in ensuring the success of the Green Ghana Project, including providing necessary logistics for the tree planting exercise.

The launch of the 2024 Green Ghana Day signifies a renewed dedication to environmental stewardship and underscores Ghana’s commitment to combating climate change. As citizens prepare to take part in this nationwide endeavour, the message is clear: Together, we can create a greener, more sustainable future for generations to come.
