Plant a tree for Peace!

logo_21_septLEAF International (Learning about Forest) and ENO (Environmental Online) invite all schools to plant trees for a sustainable future.

The event takes place on 21st of September 2012 – UN’s World Peace Day. It is part of a global campaign where more than 5000 schools in 150 countries will participate. Each participating school sending us an report and pictures will receive a certificate.

A tree is a symbol for us. Firstly, it reminds us of nature and the importance of environmental protection. Secondly, it symbolizes our co-operation between schools around the world. We support cultural diversity and tolerance. As it is an international day for peace we mark these trees as peace trees. We hope to grow together with our trees in the future and for the future. Peace is green!

The first trees will be planted at noon in Oceania. Following the Sun, new trees will be put to earth in Asia, Europe and Africa. Finally this chain of trees will reach the Americas. The Earth turns on its axis once, and several hundred thousand new trees will have found their homes.

This campaign is supported by Panasonic.
