What if we planted a trillion trees?

24 Mar 2020

When Felix Finkbeiner (pictured) was nine years old, inspired by Wangari Maathai, he founded Plant for the Planet, which aims to plant a trillion (yes, a trillion) trees around the world. The UN handed over its Billion Trees campaign to Plant for the Planet, and so far they have reached nearly 14,000,000,000.

Felix was a finalist in our ‘tole-rants’ competition (a tole-rant is a rant that points to a solution to a social problem) and he truly is an exceptional young man. Grown ups, take heed!

‘We children know adults know the challenges and they know the solutions,’ he said. ‘We don’t know why there is so little action’. Felix Finkbeiner
