The Embassy partakes in the nation-wide call to plant 500 million trees in a single day

This morning, H.E. Ambassador Hirut Zemene, together with diplomats and staff of the Embassy of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia in Brussels, planted various tree seedlings in the Embassy’s backyard as part of the nation-wide call to plant 500 million tree seedlings in a day.

This initiative is part of the government’s policy to combat climate change and advance a green economy. During the first round of the #GreenLegacy initiative, 25 billion tree seedlings were planted between 2019-2022, involving more than 20 million people from all walks of life.

The second plan of the Green Legacy Initiative aims at planting 20 billion tree seedlings in the coming four years.
