The Chief Executive of Forestry Commission (FC),
Mr. John Allotey, and other officials have called on the Department of Parks and Gardens to seek for the Department’s interventions and active participation in the soon to be launched 2022 edition of Green Ghana Day.

Mr Allotey said the Department of Parks and Gardens plays a significant role in the landscape restoration of the country and has jurisdiction over urban planting. It is therefore, right for Forestry Commission to meet and collaborate with the Department ahead of the Day.

Mr. Allotey expressed his appreciation for their immense participation in Green Ghana Day 2021, and called for their active involvement in both committee meetings and the Green Ghana Day activities.

The Director for the Department of Parks and Gardens, Rev. Charles Nii Aryetey Okai , acknowledged the humility of FC for calling on his office and said he had longed for that collaboration.

He elaborated that the Department has new machines, vehicles and water tanks to support the project and assured their keen support in whichever way before ,during and after the Green Ghana Day celebrations.

Mr. Allotey expressed his interest in working with the Department of Parks and Gardens even after the Green Ghana Day and proposed the signing of a memorandum of understanding to that effect.

The launch of the 2022 edition of the Green Ghana Day is slated for March 1 2022, at the Accra International Conference Center.
