- A MILLION NEEDS, A MILLION SEEDS, A MILLION DEEDS -
A NEW TREE PLANTING CAMPAIGN BY ENO PROGRAMME 2008
Schools can play a pivotal role in promoting environmental issues in their local communities. They can emphasize the importance of environmental protection and increase its awareness in the local communities. Children and youth are the ambassadors for the environment.
ENO Programme will plant a total of one million trees in 2008, focused on developing countries, especially those that suffer from desertification. Schools, children or youth groups are invited to join this campaign. Trees can be planted during the year and information after planting is asked to be submitted to the ENO Tree Database. In addition there will be two global ENO tree planting days in June and in September. You can see a list of some tree planting events here. Join these events, make your own event or inform us about tree planting event in your country! This campaign is a part of "Billion Tree Campaign" by UNEP.
To encourage participants and communities we have made a children's play about tree planting and co-operation called "The Drops Of Life". A global premiere took place 29th of May 2007, simultaneously in 65 countries around the world. With the play we also celebrate World Environment Day 2007. It will be performed again in the end of May 2008. And of course, we plant trees!
We want trees to be planted in every country in our planet. This campaign will not only be for environmental protection but for international collaboration and peace. We are also looking for individuals, companies and institutions who would sponsor this unique effort.
Make your pledge and join the global campaign!
