Latar Belakang
  • Program ini merupakan satu program inisiatif Majlis Bandaraya Pulau Pinang bersama keseluruhan agensi awam, agensi swasta, Institusi, NGO’s dan seluruh warga negeri Pulau Pinang.
 
Objektif Program
  • Program ini bertujuan menyahut visi kerajaan negeri iaitu Cleaner, Greener, Safer & Healthier Penang dan dapat memberi kesedaran kepada orang ramai tentang kepentingan penanaman pokok dalam usaha mengurangkan kesan rumah hijau serta pemanasan global. Selain itu, ia merupakan misi bersama bagi menjadikan negeri Pulau Pinang yang terulung dalam usaha program penghijauan.
  • Sebanyak 10,000 pokok disasarkan untuk ditanam semasa program ini. Program ini merupakan langkah yang baik dalam memberi pendedahan awal kepada orang ramai tentang pengetahuan menanam pokok dan penghijauan bumi.
  • Agensi-agensi swasta seperti sektor perkilangan, perhotelan dan pemaju juga turut serta terlibat dalam menjayakan program ni. Sumbangan pokok dan penyertaan sektor swasta dalam program ini secara tidak langsung menunjukkan komitmen yang tinggi serta komited dalam usaha penghijauan Pulau Pinang.
  • Diharapkan dengan adanya lebih banyak program-program seperti ini dapat mengurangkan kesan pemanasan global seterusnya memberi manfaat kepada semua.
