The World School Championship for Reforestation is a global initiative that works to counteract the devastation and effects of this loss by challenging schools to fundraise for reforestation projects in four continents. Each school that participates will have a chance to be awarded a certificate from the United Nations Environment Program, and also have an opportunity to travel to the project of their choice.
These projects, with the help of local volunteers, funds equipment, seeds, training and planting of organic trees and plant nurseries in their villages. Over a million seedlings per year will be planted providing fruits for improved nutrition for children, soil erosion prevention, a slowing of climate change and the preservation of biodiversity among plants and animals.
This is a great opportunity for students to learn more about ecology, develop teamwork skills and create a network of students from other countries committed to the same cause.
To get started, students should get their school to register for the project online.
