British Embassy Sarajevo Green Forum in action

For the third year British Embassy Sarajevo’s Green Forum has taken on the task of tree planting on the Igman mountain

All staff, spouses and kids joined in together on Saturday 17 September to plant an additional 50 trees on one of the most visited mountains around Sarajevo. This task has become very special for all employees and their families as each year while planting new trees, staff get to see how much the ones planted a year and two years earlier are doing. A very special bond has developed, as children now mark the area around their tree, to make sure they recognize theirs next year, then it grows from a seedling to a sapling and starts showing itself in its real beauty.

British Embassy Sarajevo through the work of the Green Forum has built an excellent relationship with the Sarajevo Forests Company who care for the planted trees throughout the year, as well as for all of the surrounding area. Mountain Igman indeed looked glorious in the September sun, proud with many new trees planted, and grateful for the attention and care.
