Bangkok Governor Pol Gen Aswin Kwanmuang presided over the opening of the campaign organised by the Bangkok Metropolitan Authority (BMA) to give seedlings as a new year gift to citizens at Eden of Central World. 

The campaign will allow people to participate in increasing the green space and reduce air pollution, resulting in a beautiful city landscape dotted with yellow flowers.

BMA is giving away 1 million seedlings of plants that produce yellow flowers, such as yellow star, Burma paduak, yellow bell, silver trumpet, kalamona, and copperpot. Yellow represents the day of birth of both the late Monarch and of His Majesty King Rama X.

This campaign has received the support from the public and private sectors with seeds coming from the Royal Forest Department, a mobile application “We Grow” which allows people to share the growth of trees through social media from True Corporation, and plant giveaway venues from Central Pattana (CPN).

Those who interested in this activity can receive plants at 50 district offices in Bangkok, 38 public parks in Bangkok, and 9 branches of Central Department Stores, namely, Central World, Central Plaza Lat Phrao, Central Festival Eastville, Central Plaza Ramintra, Central Plaza Grand Rama 9, Central Plaza Bangna, Central Plaza Pinklao, Central Plaza Rama 3, and Central Plaza Rama 2.
