TreeSisters Launch Reforest Our Future Campaign

The global, women-led reforestation charity TreeSisters have launched an inspirational animation this week, “2020 – THE YEAR IT ALL CHANGED”, you can watch it here:

The animation shares a powerful vision for how we can restore the health of our planet.

It illuminates the bleak reality of our world in 2020 and provides a clear road map for bringing our world back to thriving life, as humanity wakes up to the reality that human health and the health of the planet are the same.

Clare Dubois, Founder of TreeSisters, who was among the many thousands evacuated from the recent California wildfires, says:

“The pandemic has given us all a pause to reflect on what really matters. The business decisions we make in the coming months as we rebuild our economies are absolutely critical. Rather than be dragged into the restoration paradigm by consumer pressure, I invite businesses to lead by taking direct actions to restore the web of life and by inspiring the general public to do the same.

“I’ve witnessed the rousing effect embedding trees into organisations can have on both teams and consumers. People want to make a difference, and funding tropical tree planting allows that to be visible, measurable and meaningful at a time when our world’s tropical forests are vanishing fast, and when we need them more than ever.

When companies hear about the number of trees their donations have funded they are inspired to do more, because it feels so good and so right. Instinctively I think we know that our consumer consciousness has diminished not just our world, but also our humanity, and the experience of giving back to Nature brings us closer to who and what we really are.”

Reforest Our Future

The new video is part of the TreeSisters ‘Reforest our Future’ campaign which includes an exciting discussion panel on 27 October featuring amazing leading women visionaries. They include Pat McCabe (Weyakpa Najin Win, Woman Stands Shining), who is a Diné (Navajo) mother, grandmother, activist, artist, writer, ceremonial leader, and international speaker and botanist, medical biochemist and author Diana Beresford-Kroeger.

This online event will explore how the health of our planet is the key to human health and solutions for restoring our world.

To help meet this target, the charity requests your support to promote the importance of Nature connection and how the health of our world is linked to our own health.

TreeSisters invites you to share a photo of a landscape that has supported you during Lockdown / the pandemic on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), plus any videos and stories of Nature connection, using the hashtag #HealthyTreeHealthyMe.
