Tree Planting At The Dutch Embassy In Ghana
Form Ghana supplied 500 seedlings to 'reforest' the garden of the Ambassador's residence.
The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Accra decided to use the reception in celebration of its national day, King's Day, to echo the reforestation message of the conference 'Forests for the Future - New Forests for Africa' (March, 2016). They did so by 'reforesting' the garden of the Ambassador's residence with 500 seedlings from Form Ghana. A powerful image that was witnessed by over 600 guests; including high-ranking members of the Government of Ghana, senior representatives of the private sector and civil society, the Diplomatic Corps and the Dutch community in Ghana. Each guest was allowed to take home one of the seedlings which they could plant in their own backyard - as a practical and concrete way of turning reforestation in Ghana into actual practice.
