Indore Aims for World Record with the plantation of 51 lakhs saplings in 3 hrs

Indore, renowned for its environmental initiatives, is on the verge of setting a world record by planting 5.1 million trees within just three hours. This ambitious drive, led by Cabinet Minister Kailash Vijayvargiya, underscores the city’s commitment to combating climate change and enhancing green cover.


Scheduled meticulously, the plantation event involves the collaboration of various government departments, NGOs, and local communities. The preparation phase saw the procurement of 40 million saplings, sourced from local nurseries and regions in South India, ensuring a diverse variety of trees suited to the local climate.

The initiative is more than just a record attempt; it represents a significant step towards environmental conservation. Indore has been grappling with rising temperatures, and increasing the city's green cover is seen as a crucial strategy to mitigate this issue. The drive also aims to raise awareness about the importance of trees in maintaining ecological balance and combating global warming.

This massive plantation effort is expected to mobilize thousands of volunteers, including students, environmental activists, and local residents. The community's involvement is pivotal, not only for the execution of the event but also for the subsequent care and maintenance of the saplings.

Indore's determination to set a world record through this initiative highlights the city's leadership in environmental sustainability. By turning such ambitious plans into reality, Indore is setting a precedent for other cities to follow in the fight against climate change.
