Become an Ambassador

To become an Ambassador, participate in a Plant-for-the-Planet Academy.

As Plant-for-the-Planet Climate Justice Ambassadors we are part of a worldwide network. We spread our vision of climate justice and global citizenship to our schools, families, and friends through giving presentations and taking action. Our common mission is to plant trees.

By joining an Academy you will learn why we want to plant a trillion trees and find out how to become active and motivate others.

Planning activities with others is more fun? We think so too. That's why there are local Plant-for-the-Planet Clubs in some countries across the world that meet regularly to plan and carry out activities.

Youth Summit Talks

“Wangari Maathai inspired Kenyans to plant 30 million trees and people across Africa to plant millions more. She also inspired a kid more than 5,000 miles away in Germany named Felix. In 2007, when Felix was nine years old, he decided the world (and kids) couldn't wait on adults to fight climate change and that he would follow Wangari's example and fight climate change and deforestation one tree at a time. That year he launched Plant-for-the-Planet"
