To mark the International Day of Forests, President Katerina Sakellaropoulou of the Republic of Greece led a tree-planting event in the National Forest of Parnitha.

The event welcomed The Australian Ambassador in Greece, Alison Duncan, along with many other female ambassadors, and aimed to renew commitment to safeguarding natural resources. Students from Agia Paraskevi participated.

In a statement following the tree-planting ceremony, President Sakellaropoulou expressed gratitude to the female ambassadors and highlighted the significance of their collective action.

She stated, “Today, International Day of Forests, I invited female ambassadors, accredited in our country, to plant trees together in Parnitha, in a symbolic gesture of renewing our commitment to protect our precious natural wealth”.

“I want to thank them for responding to my invitation,” Ms Sakellaropoulou said.

“I also want to thank the Ministry of Environment and Energy, as well as the Natural Environment and Climate Change Organization, for supporting our effort, as well as the children of the 3rd Primary School of Agia Paraskevi, who participated in the tree planting.

“Forests are of great importance for humans, the environment, biodiversity. Sustainable management is the only appropriate way to preserve this precious natural element, both for us and, above all, for future generations.”
