The National Museum of Science and Technology (NMST) has called for planting more trees in order to reduce the risk of climate change.

NMST came up with the request at Bangabandhu Memorial Science Lecture Competition, an event virtually held between Rajshahi University Science Club and Sher-e-Bangla Nagar Government Girls High School, on Tuesday.

The competition began on August 1 in memory of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

In his speech, Director General of NMST Muhammad Munir Chowdhury said, “At least 25 percent forest is required in each country for its natural balance. But, trees are being destroyed.”

He said the environment has to be protected by planting more trees across the country.

The Science Museum will carry out a comprehensive tree plantation program for children and adolescents in the future, he added.
