Trek for a green planet

 

With an aim to raise awareness and cross-sectoral collaboration to combat climate change, about 20 representatives from the government, civil society, development sector and media joined a four-day trek to Langtang on Monday.

The trek was part of the Green Hiker Green Planet campaign organised by the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and the World Wildlife Fund

(WWF) to mark the World Earth Day on April 22. A statement issued by USAID on Monday said the campaign also commemorates USAID’s 60th anniversary in Nepal and WWF’s 50th anniversary.

The campaign is designed to build awareness of climate

change issues at local, national, regional, and global levels, and to encourage collaboration to combat climate change.

The trek is taking place in Langtang National Park of the Sacred Himalayan Landscape starting from Dhunche on Monday through Thulo Syabru and Jibjibe, ending in Trishuli on April 21. The campaign will close with a press conference on April 22.
