Summary

5,000 will provide the resources to support a further 1000 children to plant a tree in Harmony Woods. A tree planting experience provides both hands on practical learning and broader teaching of care for local nature and the wider environment. Over the longer term, Harmony Woods will become a community space that inspires a love of the natural world and that encourages community cohesion through action

Challenge

On September 25th 2015, countries adopted a set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years. Article 12.8 states that by 2030, people everywhere should have the relevant information and awareness for sustainable development and lifestyles in harmony with nature, yet many children are growing up without any real understanding of what this means.

Solution

By finding a piece of land, by establishing a partnership with all schools in our community and by agreeing a 10-year long planting programme with them, ALL children who go to school in our town will have planted a tree in the wood. By supporting them, we are saying "This matters"; by providing the opportunity to work together they find they can plant not just one tree but a forest. One person may feel overwhelmed by the environmental crises facing us, but together we can make a difference.

Long-Term Impact

Locally, biodiversity is improved & opportunities provided to connect to nature. All children in our town will know how to plant trees & why it matters. Families will learn from their children about the need for environmental change. Globally, one town's actions will have made a small difference but as these young children grow and become the next generation of decision makers they WILL have the information and awareness needed to live in harmony with nature. And if this model is replicated...
