On the occasion of the UN Day in Bosnia and Herzegovina, among other activities, UN Volunteers and other UN agencies support voluntary action of planting million seedlings, organized by NGO "Ruke" and NGO "Mozak prijateljstva". About 20,000 volunteers will gather across Bosnia and Herzegovina in order to draw attention of general public on environmental protection and the importance of forest ecosystems by planting trees.

Through numerous programs and projects, thanks to the joint work of UN agencies and their cooperation with a number of socio-political, educational and cultural stakeholders in the country, the UN in BiH continuously works on improving the quality of life for all citizens in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
