Kazakh capital city marks Mother Earth Day, plants trees
The campaign gathered more than 300 people. All sanitary requirements were observed.
Nearly 100 trees were planted with common efforts. The campaign was initiated by a local group of active citizens, named Green Day Inn.
“We want to give all people a chance to plant trees, thereby making a contribution to our society and the future of our children,” said the group.
The International Mother Earth Day is celebrated annually on April 22.
"Mother Earth is clearly urging a call to action. Nature is suffering. Oceans filling with plastic and turning more acidic. Extreme heat, wildfires and floods, as well as a record-breaking Atlantic hurricane season, have affected millions of people. Now we face COVID-19, a worldwide health pandemic link to the health of our ecosystem," said UN in a statement published on the official website.
