A number of actors of Metropolis Theater in Tirana join the municipality's initiative for trees planting. The protagonists of Shakespeare's 'The Twelfth Night', currently on stage in this theater, planted 45 mimosa trees on Tuesday along with Mayor Erion Veliaj.
The mayor thanked the artists for this valuable contribution which gives a breath of fresh to the city.
"I am deeply grateful to the artists that joined the trees planting initiative. Their choice to plant 45 mimosa trees in the Lake Park area is the right one due to the fact that last winter's freeze destroyed a large number of them. This act conveys a clear message to the citizens urging them to participate in this project which serves not only to them but also to the future generations," said Veliaj
He stated that Tirana should be seen as a big stage where everyone plays a role.
"We should all act as professionals contributing for a positive change of the city's image. If each citizen plants a tree today it means that the capital will be greener tomorrow," declared the mayor.
