20 Years of Forests for Peace: Marking the Day in History

As the tree planting for peace initiative embarks on a momentous journey towards our 20th anniversary, we stand at the threshold of a global celebration of unity, environmental stewardship, and the indelible spirit of peace. Our initiative, rooted in the simple act of planting trees, has blossomed into a worldwide movement, symbolizing our collective aspiration for a sustainable and harmonious future.

A Journey Inspired by Giants

Inspired by the pioneering efforts of environmentalists like Wangari Maathai and supported by the passionate advocacy of Jane Goodall, our initiative has grown from a handful of schools to over 10,000 across 157 countries. These visionaries have laid the foundation for our mission, demonstrating that every individual has the power to enact change. Jane Goodall’s message to our community serves as a heartfelt reminder of our shared commitment: "I'm very passionate about trees, protecting forests, restoring forests... Please know that I am with you in spirit."

A Call to Global Action

This year, as we approach September 21, 2024, we invite you to join us in a global tree planting endeavor that seeks not only to green our planet but to sow the seeds of peace in hearts and communities worldwide.
