 Nepalese Take Part in Tree Hugging Campaign to Celebrate World Environment Day

Hundreds of people in Nepal took part in a tree hugging campaign conducted with the aim of setting a new Guinness World Record to mark the World Environment Day on Thursday.

The day saw more than 2,000 people, including parliament members, office workers but mostly students in their school uniforms, gathered in the country's capital Kathmandu, as they participated in the event and held the trees for two minutes at the National Martyrs and Peace Park, the Huffington Post reported.

Thaneswor Guragai, the event's coordinator said that their aim wasn't just to set a new record, which was previously set by people in Portland, Oregon at 936, but also wanted to raise awareness about trees being a crucial element for environment.

Guragai added that they would be sending the required documents to Guinness, after which it would take about two months to get a recognition certificate.
