Ethio Swedish alumni members will gather at Meskel square, Addis Ababa on July 28 to plant about 500 - 1,000 seedlings as a contribution to the National Greening Campaign.
The seedlings and exact plantation site will be provided by the Ethiopian Environmental Protection Authority. Transportation to and from the planting site will be arranged and T-shirts (with logos of SI and Ethio-Swedish, and event theme) will be distributed on the bus.
