The 1treellion movement mobilize people to cool the Earth. We are building a community for our planet. A community around trees.
We aim to plant trees…trillions of them... to cool the planet.
We have waited long enough for someone else to repair the damage done to our planet. It is up to us to be the change.
It is not enough to “just” plant a tree. We have to collectively change course, and to do this we need to come together to raise both funds and awareness. There is magic in music, togetherness, and trees (trillions of them). When we intertwine our branches we grow in unimaginable ways.
You don’t have to feel alone in your desire for change, you’ve come to the right place.
Trees are the natural climate solution. It is our conviction that this can be done BUT we need to act with determination NOW.
It is our mission to collectively raise enough funds to make a meaningful global impact by bringing communities together to plant 1 trillion (1,000,000,000,000) trees and cool the Earth.
There are many initiatives and organizations that aims to plant trees. Our lives literally depend on that and only a few of them have succeeded. We plan on doing what we do best - generate a movement and raise a 1treellion.org Global Fund to support those organizations.
1treellion’s works towards achieving UN’s SDG #13, Climate Action.
1treellion is a member of Catalyst 2030.
Catalyst 2030 is a global movement of social entrepreneurs and social innovators from all sectors who share the common goal of creating innovative, people-centric approaches to attain the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. Members are driven by a passionate determination to ensure that the SDGs are met by 2030 thereby avoiding the devastating 50-year delay predicted in the Social Progress Index.
We are the tree rangers, making sure all funds raised for the cause are dedicated and distributed to planting trees initiatives all over the world to where it makes the most impact.
Believe it or not, planting is not always the best way to get trees back! Planting trees means starting with a nursery and transporting them to planting sites where they have been sowed and grown under ideal circumstances. Many young saplings die because they cannot adapt to the harsh world outside. Of course, we make sure trees are planted where appropriate.
Every organization we support has to go through a vetting process, we make sure they do their job of planting and maintaining the trees till they reach full maturity.
We supports and promotes high-biodiversity, high-yield, high-impact agroforestry systems.
