Plant-for-the-Planet is a global initiative comprised of youth from over 70 countries. Over 18,000 students have been through the academy and have joined forces as leaders of the Official Tree-Planting Campaign of the United Nations. The Seattle event on May 24, 2013 was the first Plant-for-the-Planet Academy in the United States beyond the East Coast.
The foundation is governed by children and supported by adults, and believes everyone can do something to reverse climate change. They believe that together – as a world family – we can solve global problems by actively shaping our future by organizing tree planting parties, giving speeches, and encouraging others to participate. A tree takes 10kg of CO2 out of the air each year and during its lifetime a total of about 3 tons of CO2. Each tree is a symbol of climate justice.
