Just recently, several members of the Lions Club in Ludhiana, a district in the Indian state of Punjab, launched a major reforestation campaign. Their goal is to work continuously for four days and eventually succeed in planting about 1,000 trees.
Work on this project began on the 15th of July, and is expected to come to an end by the 18th of the same month.
In case you were wondering, the people of Ludhiana didn't just decide that it was high time to restore local landscapes all by themselves. Quite the contrary, this project is part of a larger-scale green-oriented campaign: the United Nations Environment Program.
Those presently planting trees in India argue that efforts must also be made to determine the people living in the nearby communities to take proper care of these new inhabitants of their lands once the reforestation campaign is over. Otherwise, all efforts to safeguard our natural world will be proven futile in the not-too-distant future.
