3 simple steps to make the world a little bit greener:
- Draw a tree at one of our events,
- Select an organisation from our projects list
- We provide the funds to have it planted. Easy!
These events cover all ages, from young children to adults. Our main goal is to bring people closer to our topics and the work of our partner organisations, in a relaxed way, taking the time discuss their questions with us.
Based on the choices of our visitors, we provide the corresponding funds to the organisations after the event. The funding comes from Reforestation World and from private sponsors, who also agree that this is a positive way to engage people. After each event, we also publish a selection of the collected drawings in our Facebook page, to show the creativity of our visitors and stimulate others to appreciate and be engaged.
2019: Again at the Going Wild event of the Zürich Zoo. More than 300 drawings and over 6'000 trees sponsored. Next to our "Draw a tree" action, films and posters, we also had 3 guest organisations: newTree, SYDA + Tiloo's partnership in Gambia, and SUGI.
2018: Three Summer events, over 1'000 trees sponsored:
2017: The very first event took, at the Going Wild days of the Zürich Zoo. More than 250 trees were sponsored (check our Facebook post here). Given the positive results, we decided to repeat it in different parts of Switzerland during the Summer 2018.
