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.
On Friday, June 9, 2023, a public ceremony was held in commemoration of the event at the University of Ghana. It was climaxed with His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the President of the Republic, leading the entire nation to plant at least ten million (10,000,000) tree seedlings across the country.
The third edition of the Green Ghana Day exercise was replicated at the Adansi North District, Fomena as part of an aggressive afforestation and reforestation agenda to restore degraded forest landscapes and to contribute to global efforts to fight climate change.
In this quest, the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources, in collaboration with the Forestry Commission, produced thousands of seedlings to the Adansi North District Assembly, enabling the district actively participate in the national tree-planting exercise.
