Situation

Humanity needs to scale up Nature-based solutions to climate change fast. Reforestation is a highly effective approach, however many reforestation projects do not address the needs of the people who live with, in and near the forest, focusing solely on carbon sequestration, and neglecting the broader needs of the interconnected web of life. In addition, a quantum human behaviour shift is needed to reduce overconsumption, reconnect to Nature and focus on restoration.

Solution

TreeSisters focuses on accelerating tropical reforestation through the funding of ethical, community-led planting projects that support local communities and restore biodiversity, water cycles, weather systems and soils. We’re aiming for one billion trees annually through grassroots funded tropical tree planting. We also know that huge social change is needed for humanity to transform from a consumer to a restorer species, and we provide the community and resources needed to make that leap.
