Ahmedabad: Tackling climate change is one of the biggest challenges today and planting trees is one of the simplest and effective step anyone can take. In a recent research by ecologist Thomas Crowther, he shares that planting 1.2 trillion trees across the globe can help fight climate change.
The 70th Van Mahotsava, in collaboration with the Department of Forest and Cadila Pharmaceuticals, was organized at Cadila’s Dholka Facility. The day was marked by the presence of more than 300 guests and with plantation of 1000+ saplings.
The Chief Guest on the occasion was Hon. Education Minister Shri Bhupendrasinh Chudasama. Addressing the audience the chief guest said, “It is important to address the issue of climate change and I urge all the organizations to contribute towards it very aggressively. It is paramount that we develop not only the attitude but also the interest to save trees. We should not only take such initiatives ourselves but also encourage others to plant trees.”
The other dignitaries included Dy. Collector, Mamlatdar, TDO, DFO (District Forest Officer), office bearers of Dholka Municipality and Sarpanches of surrounding villages. The employees of Cadila Pharmaceuticals took leading roles in organizing the event.
