Speaking at the inauguration ceremony of the six-classroom primary school in the Pláto ward, he stressed the need for the population to be guided by a culture of forestation of their properties, in the sense of returning to the green belt of the city.

"It is important that all the citizens in their residence, street or workplace can have the culture to plant a tree and take care of it, because only then will improve the environment and help the government in combating desertification," he said.

The governor says it is necessary that the population is more involved in the process of planting more trees and diversified plants, aiming at the growth of green spaces for the establishment of principles of sustainability and biological diversity.
