Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change will be organizing “Hariyali Mahotsav” on 8th July, 2022 at Talkatora Stadium, New Delhi in the spirit of “Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav”.
Hariyali Mahotsav, the “Tree Festival” is being organized to create awareness about the importance of trees in sustaining not only the life of the present generations but also to secure the future of forthcoming generations. Trees play an extremely important role in mitigating the adverse effects of climate change. This Mahotsav is perceived as an effective tool to instill enthusiasm among the masses for forest conservation and planting trees. It holds immense importance in complementing the policy and program initiatives of the government toward environmental conservation.
Ceremonial Plantation drives are being organized with the participation of 75 Nagar Vans throughout the country, 75 Police Stations and 75 Schools in Delhi/NCR, and 75 degraded plantation sites in the different states as part of this Mahotsav.
