The 1000 trees day
On 3 June at 7.30 a.m., a thousand people from different cities of Guatemala gathered on the hill of Santa Cruz, in the city of Antigua, to celebrate World Environment Day in an unusual and concrete way: 1,000 new trees were planted.
A rendezvous with nature
Families with children, groups of friends and individuals responded to the appeal launched by Plantemos 1000 Árboles, a volunteer association that over the last five years has urged Guatemalans to take care of the environment.
Enel Green Power employees and their families were also present on the hill of Santa Cruz, ready to participate in an event that has become tradition for many among them.
“The last week of the month, in the period from May to September, that is, in the raining season, volunteers meet with the aim of sowing and planting trees”
Enel has been a partner of Plantemos 1000 Árboles for many years, and EGP employees in Guatemala have become dedicated to these events, during which they venture into the country's forests equipped with shovels, buckets and watering cans. Led by the volunteers and driven by great enthusiasm, they completed their mission on behalf of nature on the shores of the Pixcaya river.
