” The 250K project is the attempt of the Ministry of Youth Sports Development to ensure that we incorporate the youth of our country in the action plan against climate change.

“This means that we will involve 250,000 young people across the country to plant 250,000 trees, then we will be able to plant 50,000.

“The goal is to make sure that we’re not just planting trees, but raising awareness, they’re planting the trees, and they’re also becoming ambassadors for climate change,” Dare said.

He said the ministry is working closely with the environment ministry and other strategic implementation partners in a public-private partnership to ensure the project is privately financed.

The minister explained that the Forest Research Institute of Nigeria (FRIN) is also on board to advise on the best trees to plant in different parts of the country.

He assured that the details of the project will be made public as soon as the strategic commitments are completed.
