Update on tree planting

June 2014: WeForest has planted over 5,4 million trees to date, enabled by the donations of 100+ corporate supporters, including Just Forests.

Why do we plant trees?

WeForest has created a holistic solution to cooling down the Earth. In the process of doing so, it is transforming the lives of some of the world’s poorest people.

The science on which WeForest is based represents a paradigm in which forestry, climate and cloud science meet.

Our charity is driven by a science-based estimation that if 20 million km2 of forest were replenished in equatorial regions, this would add 2% cloud cover to the Earth. This would protect the Earth from warming during a critical stage when humanity is transitioning to a world that works for all living things. 

The WeForest goals are:

1. To mitigate climate change through reforestation of degraded land in equatorial regions.

2. To demonstrate leadership in the NGO reforestation sector by demonstrating best practices that relate to landscape restoration, poverty alleviation and social justice.

3. To influence institutional frameworks and stimulate the scientific and political agenda on forest, hydrology and climate towards ultimate impact.

 

WeForest has planted over 5,4 million trees to date, enabled by the donations of 100+ corporate supporters, including Just Forests.

Corporations have been able to show their engagement towards the planet thus increasing their customer benefits, their employees satisfaction and their sales revenues.
