Events

Watch this short video which gives you a taste of what our community tree planting events are like.

Our workshops involve communities in their local areas in tree planting for all ages, and outdoor exploration and games for children. Our workshop leaders are forest school trained and highlight how trees and plants are the fundamental basis of all life, and crucial to maintaining a sustainable environment.

We invite all ages to participate, and envisage that our involvement of children and young people will help to inspire the next generation to address climate change with environmental solutions.

We can design bespoke tree planting events for all audiences. Our workshop leaders tailor the workshops to suit a variety of different, groups from schools to community groups.

 

Values

Our values are

Environmentalism • Community • Engagement • Participation • Integration

We aim to cultivate a lasting legacy of environmental sustainability by engaging local communities in tree planting. We believe that participation in our workshops will contribute to social integration at a local level.

"I can find common ground for those who oppose the Paris Accords because, for example, they might say, well, it’s not going to work, you can’t get everybody to cooperate, or they might say it’s more important for us to provide cheap energy for the poor, even if it means in the short term that there’s more pollution.

"At least I can have a debate with them about that and I can show them why I think clean energy is the better path, especially for poor countries, that you can leapfrog old technologies.

"I can’t find common ground if somebody says climate change is just not happening, when almost all of the world’s scientists tell us it is. I don’t know where to start talking to you about this. If you start saying it’s an elaborate hoax, I don’t know what to – where do we start?

"Unfortunately, too much of politics today seems to reject the very concept of objective truth. People just make stuff up. They just make stuff up."

@networkrail claims there are 650,000 "problem trees" along their track and plan to cut many thousands down. Vegetation management or a crime against the environment? #bbcwato
