During the week of the UN General Assembly in September, the Global Week to #Act4SDGs inspired millions of people to take both individual and group action on the Sustainable Development Goals.
The UN SDG Action Campaign’s convening partner, The Road to Rights, organized events from September 16th 2022 to September 30th 2022 in an effort to #FlipTheScript and reimagine the story surrounding the themes of climate change, justice, and peace. A tree-planting event was held on September 25th in Thimphu, Bhutan, adjacent to Tandin Nye and above the Early Learning Highschool in Samazingkha.
The “One Million Trees Project” of the Bhutan Ecological Society provided funding for the initiative, which was run in collaboration with Royal Thimphu College Rover Scout. Moreover, the organizers also handled the transportation arrangements. From nine in the morning to one in the afternoon, the tree planting activity was held. 25 students from the Royal Thimphu College and three members of the Bhutan Ecological Society helped and supervised the tree-planting process. Over the course of five hours, 140 seedlings were planted in total, and the Royal Thimphu College student government generously supplied refreshments to the volunteers.
