The health of our planet is directly linked to the health of the world’s forests.
Forests are vital ecosystems that human civilization, business and economies cannot prosper without — they improve air quality in cities, store water, help regulate weather, protect biodiversity, mitigate urban heat islands, and offer natural sources of food and medicine. Forests and woodlands can also store carbon for centuries, helping to mitigate against climate change. That’s why it’s important for governments and private sector organizations to conserve existing forests, prevent deforestation, and grow new trees.
Global Citizen is calling on governments, businesses, philanthropists, and institutions to commit to 1 billion trees by 2022 and 1 trillion trees by 2030. By protecting forests, restoring woodlands, and promoting tree growth, we can help combat the climate crisis and build a healthier planet for all.
