A total of 60,000 trees will be planted this year in Dak Lak and Dak Nong Provinces as part of the 'Millions of Green Trees for a Green Vietnam' program, which kicked off in Hanoi on Wednesday.

The program was jointly launched by the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union’s Central Committee in coordination with Suntory PepsiCo Vietnam Beverage Co. Ltd..

Accordingly, 50,000 trees will be planted in around 40 hectares of watershed forest in Dak Lak and Dak Nong, while 10,000 additional trees will be grown in other places in the two Central Highlands provinces.

The program aims to contribute to the government’s goal of planting one billion trees, as well as the target of growing 100 million new trees set by the committee for the 2021 - 25 period.

Addressing the launching ceremony, Bui Quang Huy, standing secretary of the Ho Chi Minh City Youth Union’s Central Committee, emphasized that the program manifests the contribution of young Vietnamese people to the restoration of watershed forests, green tree development, and environmental protection and climate change response.

It will also help educate the youth and enhance their awareness and responsibility when it comes to the role and importance of trees and forests, as well as the urgency of planting and protecting forests and safeguarding natural resources such as land, water, and air, Huy said.

The program organizers have also launched a photo and video clip contest on tree planting, with a view to encouraging practical actions leading to changes in behaviors and habits toward the building of a green lifestyle in society, according to the Vietnam News Agency

A virtual walking and running tournament will be organized, through which participants can donate up to 20 trees based on the distance that they have registered to run.
