Situation

Nature-based solutions are vital for solving climate change, improving livelihoods and preserving biodiversity. Reforestation is a highly effective approach, yet many reforestation projects do not address the needs of the people living in and near the forest, instead focusing on carbon sequestration and neglecting the broader needs of the interconnected web of life. Behaviour shift is needed to stop destructive cycle of overconsumption and reconnect to Nature through restoration.

Solution

TreeSisters focuses on accelerating tropical reforestation and empowering women through ethical, community-led planting projects that support local communities, promote leadership of women and restore biodiversity, water cycles, weather systems and soils. We are aiming for one billion trees annually through grassroots funding. To support the shift of social consciousness, we provide a community network and resources for humanity to transform from a consumer to a restorer species.

  • Having analyzed the activities, intention and approaches of hundreds of tree campaigns, NGO and projects, TreeSisters stands out as one of the most ethical and compassionate tree growing organization we found.
