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.

Today is Earth Day. It is also Roots for the Future's birthday. Six years ago, a group of us got together with some children and planted 50 trees as a pilot workshop. We all felt amazing afterwards. We'd spent a wonderful afternoon in a beautiful setting doing something positive in the fight against climate change.

Six years later, we are still going. We're perhaps not as developed as an organisation as we envisioned in 2016, but throw in a global pandemic and some huge life changes for the directors, life has put us where we are today. And we are incredibly proud of what we have done and continue to do.

The theme of this year's Earth Day is INVEST in our planet:
"This is the moment to change it all — the business climate, the political climate, and how we take action on climate. Now is the time for the unstoppable courage to preserve and protect our health, our families, our livelihoods… together, we must Invest In Our Planet."

With our focus on children and young people, we are investing in the future of our planet. Our vision is that by engaging them in enjoyable environmental action, we can inspire the next generation to find nature-based solutions to the climate crisis. If you would like to invest in the future of our planet too, we'd love to have you get involved.

Oh, and Happy Birthday Roots for the Future x
