LEAF International (Learning about Forest) and ENO (Environmental Online) invite all schools to plant trees for a sustainable future.
The event takes place on 21 September – UN’s World Peace Day. It is part of a global campaign in which thousands of schools around the world will participate. Each participating school which sends us a report and a picture, 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 symbolises our cooperation 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.
The first trees will be planted at noon in Oceania. Following the Sun, new trees will be put in the 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.
