The Big Climate Fight Back + The One Tree Non-Uniform Day
The Woodland Trust’s Big Climate Fight Back is hoping to encourage one million people to plant a tree to help combat climate change.
They have chosen November 30th as it is the start of the traditional tree planting season. The day also falls in National Tree Week, a week of tree planting organised by the Tree Council and is also Tree Charter Day – a national day of celebration of trees and woods.
Tree planting is a great way to help in the fight against climate change as trees absorb carbon, fight flooding, reduce pollution, nurture wildlife and make landscapes more resilient.
If you’d like to plant a tree or donate towards the campaign visit the Woodland Trust’s website here.
Another exciting event that also takes place during tree planting week is the ‘One Tree Non-Uniform Day’ on November 22nd. Parents For The Future UK are trying to mobilise as many schools as possible to do this simple fund raiser to mark the start of NationalTreePlanting week.
By encouraging schools to hold a non-uniform day and charge £1 per pupil the money raised can be put towards planting trees on school grounds. Visit their facebook page for more details of how to get involved.
