Trees for Zambia 2014

In 2012, Greenpop launched Trees for Zambia, a reforestation and eco-awareness project which began with a 3-week tree planting event and was followed by an ongoing campaign to inspire awareness about deforestation, climate change, tree planting, environmental sustainability and alternative energy sources. Each year now, the ongoing project is boosted with a Festival of Action in June/July where thousands of trees are planted by passionate people from all over the world. Environmental workshops are hosted with school children, farmers and volunteers and many lessons are learned and shared. Trees for Zambia is a holistic awareness campaign based on getting people active about making sustainable changes.

This year we will also be hosting Earth Fest Africa – a music and sustainability festival during Trees for Zambia on 27 and 28 June. Read here about Earth Fest Africa.

Huge shout-out to our valued 2014 GREENPOP ZAMBIA PARTNERS.
