In the spirit of "Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav," the Ministry of Environment, Forests, and Climate Change will hold ‘Hariyali Mahotsav’ on July 8, 2022, at Talkatora Stadium in New Delhi. Hariyali Mahotsav, or ‘Tree Festival,’ is being organized to raise awareness about the importance of trees in not only sustaining the lives of current generations but also in securing the future of future generations.

Trees are extremely important in mitigating the negative effects of climate change. This Mahotsav is viewed as an effective tool for instilling enthusiasm among the masses for forest conservation and tree planting. It is crucial in complementing the government's policy and programme initiatives aimed at environmental conservation.

Hariyali Mahotsav 2022 is being organized by the Ministry of Environment, Forests, and Climate Change in collaboration with the State Governments, Police Institutions, and Delhi Schools for plantation drives on the occasion.

Ceremonial plantation drives are being organized as part of this Mahotsav, with participation from 75 Nagar Vans across the country, 75 Police Stations and 75 Schools in Delhi/NCR, and 75 degraded plantation sites in various states.

Tree planting campaigns fight a variety of environmental problems, such as deforestation, soil erosion, desertification in semi-arid regions, and global warming, and as a result, they improve the environment's beauty and balance. The supply of oxygen rises as a result of trees' emission of oxygen and absorption of hazardous pollutants.

The event will be attended by Bhupender Yadav, Union Minister of Environment, Forest & Climate Change and Labour & Employment; Hardeep Singh Puri, Union Minister of Petroleum & Natural Gas and Housing & Urban Affairs; Ashwini Kumar Choubey, Union Minister of State for Environment, Forest & Climate Change and Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution; and Vinai Kumar Saxena, Lieutenant Governor, GNCTD.
