Since 2005, I have been a part of this incredible community, dedicated to planting trees for peace. Whether serving as a teacher or coordinating the program, I have been promoting active participation and spreading the message of sustainability. Students and teachers who engage actively in the program not only forge stronger relationships and neighborhood ties but also develop robust leadership skills. This empowers their teams and classes, aids in conflict resolution, enhances communication skills, fosters cooperation, and builds confidence. As this is a global program, it enables participants to see themselves as citizens of the world. Beyond these benefits, our collective efforts contribute to a more sustainable and peaceful world. -  Dulce Pazinato Casarin, teacher, Brasil


I am inspired to take part in environmental activities such as tree planting as they will contribute to stabilizing the global climatic conditions. The current situation in my area requires attention; the temperatures have been extremely high and rains have been erratic which have negatively impacted the food security as well as health of the people thereby compromising peace. This problem requires all people from all parts of the world to work together and fight to reverse this scenario. - Melvin Jnr. Kafue Boys, a pupil, Zambia

I am immensely grateful that the journey I started a decade ago  with my students has blossomed into a widespread movement, embraced by hundreds of schools now part of the movement. Reflecting on the past decade, it's incredibly fulfilling to witness birds, animals, and humans finding comfort beneath the shade of trees we planted years ago. Planting trees for peace not only enriches our planet but also fosters unity and harmony within our communities. 
The impact on students was significant; they shifted from lavish birthday celebrations to gifting trees to nature on their special day. Participating in the Peace Tree campaign, they learned about the peace symbol and actively engaged in creating peace formations.These experiences not only instilled a sense of environmental responsibility but also fostered a deeper understanding of peacebuilding and unity within the student community.

Planting trees on International Peace Day is a concrete action that promotes environmental protection and sustainable development. It serves as a symbol of cooperation and peace, bringing people together from around the world towards a common goal and emphasizing the importance of peace and environmental protection. This activity fosters hope, promotes mental well-being, and strengthens community, especially in the midst of conflicts.
