A faith-based environmental group, Christians Advocating Respect For the Environment, engaged in tree planting exercises at the Accra College of Education campus.
The exercise on Wednesday, saw about 30 students join them as they planted seedlings of the Tree of life, Veitcha Palms and Hohenau on the campus as part of a sensitisation drive.
The tree planting was to replace the greenery lost during a development project.
The group hopes that these future teachers will pass on the importance of caring for the environment to future pupils.
“Coming into contact with them will have a snowball effect on our environmental protection agenda,” Seth Akagla, the Chairperson of Christians Advocating Respect For the Environment said.
Mr. Aklaga further stressed the importance of Christians taking an active interest in environmental conservation.
“Having dominion over the world doesn’t mean cutting down trees and destroying nature,” he said.
“We think that if we Christians dont protect the environment and preach protection of the environment to those who come into contact with the good news, it means we have not been playing our role as Christians.”
