In an attempt to raise awareness to India's plan 'Make India Green Again', 1.5 million volunteers spent 12 hours along the Narmada river in the Indian state 'Madhya Pradesh' planting trees. The 1.5 million volunteers broke the Guinness World Record by planting 66 million trees within 12 hours, surpassing the record of 55 million trees that was achieved within one day in the Indian state 'Uttar Pradesh' in July 2016.
It was announced at the Paris Climate conference that India invested $6.2 billion to increase the forest cover. The goal of this investment is to increase the forest cover to 95 million hectares by 2030.
