"Plant-for-the-Planet plants trees for a better world. Help the children to save the future"
It all started with a school presentation and today Plant-for-the-Planet is a global movement that fights climate change by planting trees around the world. In 2007 a 9-year-old boy called Felix Finkbeiner had an idea: Children could plant one million trees in every country on earth and thereby offset CO2 emissions all on their own.
Trees are the cheapest and one of the most effective means of binding CO2, allowing more time to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to zero and mitigate the climate crisis. Today, more than 75,000 children from 71 countries have participated, with nearly 14 billion trees having been planted around the world already.
The Trillion Tree Campaign
Plant-for-the-Planet’s next goal is to plant a trillion trees worldwide.
Three trillion trees currently exist globally. A further one trillion trees can be planted and Plant-for-the-Planet wants to inspire the world to do just that. It’s estimated that these trees could capture 25% of human made carbon emissions every year.
What will your donations do?
Funds paid to Plant-for-the-Planet will be split equally between two areas:
1. Planting trees. Donations will support one of Plant-for-the-Planet’s tree planting projects. Each tree costs around €1 (87p) to plant.
2. Helping expand Plant-for-the-Planet’s global network of tree planters and organising Academies. This helps more children around the world to become Climate Justice Ambassadors.
