The Billion Tree Campaign was inspired by the late Nobel Peace Prize winner, Professor Wangari Maathai, founder of the Green Belt Movement. When an executive in the United States told Professor Maathai their corporation was planning to plant a million trees, her response was:
“That’s great, but what we really need is to plant a billion trees.”
At the point of joining, The Green Earth Appeal was one of only 48 worldwide Tree Planting Partners in the United Nations Environment’s Billion Tree Campaign*. The campaign started in 2006 and since then has successfully planted more than fifteen billion trees. This programme has encouraged partnership between governments, organisations, communities and individuals to work towards a better global future through the planting of trees.
