Commemoration of 2023 Green Ghana Day


Parliament of Ghana in collaboration with the Forestry Commission would hold a short exercise within the precinct of Parliament to commemorate the 2023 Green Ghana Day on Friday 9th June 2023 at 10:00am.

The Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon. Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin will lead Members of Parliament and the Parliamentary Service Staff to plant about 300 tree seedlings at Parliament House, the official residence of the Speaker, Deputy Speakers, Leader’s village, Clerk-to -Parliament among others.

This year’s edition of the Green Ghana Day exercise is being marked under the theme “Our Forests, Our Health” with a target to plant at least 10 million tree seedlings across the country.

The nationwide exercise is part of an aggressive afforestation and reforestation agenda to restore degraded forest landscape and to contribute to Global efforts to fight climate change. Parliament sees the preservation and protection of our forest as a collective responsibility as a nation.

Considering the importance of this national exercise, the Rt. Hon. Speaker will suspend sitting tomorrow to enable Hon. Members of Parliament join their various constituent’s to plant trees in the towns, communities and villages in their constituencies.

In view of this, Parliament calls on State Agencies, Institutions, Faith Based Organizations and members of the general public to demonstrate their patriotism by actively participating in the tree planting exercise.

The Rt.Hon. Speaker, Members of Parliament and entire staff of the Parliamentary Service will participate fully in this national exercise.
