Challenge

With increasingly harsh weather, harmful mining practices, deforestation, and overgrazing, Mongolia is facing a potential environmental disaster which could have widespread effects. It is crucial to begin educating and encouraging communities and their younger generations to protect their land and country now from these destructive activities.

Solution

With local community members and students we intend to plant hundreds of trees. Seminars on land management, upkeep, and forest protection are being developed to educate the local community on the importance of these issues. With your help we can accomplish this and inspire other communities to do the same for their areas.

Long-Term Impact

The project will educate local suburban communities to help them protect and restore regional, at-risk forest areas. This will serve as an example to other communities, encouraging them to help fight together against desertification and illegal logging, protecting the natural areas that they depend upon for their livelihood.
