The Forestry Commission and Humano Energy has pledged their support for the Green Republic Project which seeks to plant over 20 million trees in the next 10 years.
The Forestry Commission on its part, will support the project technically and materially, as it considers the project a noble one.
CEO of Humano Energy, DR. Richard Atuahene, on other hand, has also pledged to support the green project financially, urging other corporates to join and provide their support for the project he considers a life-saving one for generations to come.
Commenting on the pledges by the two entities, Convener for the Green Republic Project, Nana Osei Darkwa, thanked them for joining the course of fighting climate change and promised to use whatever support provided by them for the purpose for which it was provided.
“We want to really thank the Forestry Commission of Ghana for its readiness to support the Green Republic Project with material and technical services which we desperately need. With the support of the commission we are confident of achieving our set goal of planting 20million trees by 2028.
Again, we thank the CEO of Humano Energy for pledging to support the project because of his conviction that the climate fight is a shared responsibility which all responsible corporates must endeavor to be a part of, considering that the effects of climate change would be costlier in the future than taking proactive steps to mitigate it today” he said.
Nana Darkwa further called on other corporate bodies to support Youth Icons—the organisation spearheading this project— in order for them to be able to achieve the goal set before them.
“The benefit of what we seek to do is for the collective good of all Ghanaians and humanity at large and so we humbly appeal for all to support and encourage the young men and women behind this project,
For us young people, the Green Republic Project remains a lifeline and a creative and strategic way to help shape the future. The most important thing for me as the Convener of this project is to try to get young Ghanaians to appreciate that the future of Ghana lies in how we manage our environment, “he added.
