    People across Tibet have observed the National Tree Planting Day recently to not only fulfill a citizen's obligation of planting trees, but also better protect the country's forests and give an extra push to its continuous pursuit of green development.

     

    The event is part of Tibet's efforts to reforest the country, raise awareness among citizens especially young generations, and fight against climate change.

     

    "Planting trees for the sake of the environment and ourselves" has been deeply rooted in common people's awareness.

     

    "It is not only fashionable, but more importantly, it is meaningful for our descendants," said karma Norbu, a citizen who takes part in the tree planting event, echoing the Chinese idiom "the forefathers plant trees, where their descendants can find shadows to enjoy the cool".
