Caribbean Tree Planting Project Antigua Barbuda, is a joint effort of the youth element, government and private sector organizations. The project seeks to educate on how to plant and tend to trees, maintain trees, change the attitude towards the importance of trees, and to foster the mindset of promoting environmental conservation and promotion.
The peace is possible campaign was an initiative organized by JCI and the United Nation, aiming to mobilize young people worldwide to create awareness, advocate, take action and commit to an everlasting world peace. Their bucket list challenge aims to demonstrate that peace is possible through online commitments.
The joint collaboration sought to add to the undergoing transformation of the green spaces around the police facilities. The executive of the tree planting project would also like to extend a thank you to Cst. Berty Eugene, for donating several passion fruit tree slips.
