Environment, Forest and Climate Change Minister Saber Hossain Chowdhury said every citizen should plant one fruit, timber and medicinal tree to improve quality of life.

“By planting trees collectively, we will be able to build a greener, healthier, more sustainable and resilient environment,” he said while launching the “One Tree4Mother” campaign in Bangladesh by planting a Neem tree at the Indian Embassy in Dhaka on Sunday.

High Commissioner of India to Bangladesh Pranay Kumar Verma was also present.

Saber highlighted that the “One Tree4Mother” campaign embodies our shared commitment to preserving and nurturing the environment for future generations and is a testament to the enduring friendship and cooperation between Bangladesh and India.

“Together, we can create more sustainable future, combat climate change, and leave a lasting legacy for our children and grandchildren,” he added.

The minister said the campaign fosters a culture of environmental stewardship and responsibility. “Everyone has a role in safeguarding our planet by inspiring communities to come together to plant, nurture, and protect trees that, in turn, protect us,” he added.
