JOIN AND SUPPORT OUR YOUNG LEADERS BY PLANTING A TREE, TODAY!!
2,723 TREES PLANTED IN 9 COUNTRIES
Throughout their lives, children keep hearing about great issues of the modern world – be it global warming, pollution or deforestation. Somehow, all of these statements we hear seem to have a rather blaming tone to them. As if the damage wasn't made gradually many years before.
Nevertheless, the question should not be “Whose fault, is it?” but “What can we do about it?”
While these issues should impact everyone equally, young people are especially affected as it concerns their future the most.
Therefore, Design for Change gave young leaders of this year's Student Council an opportunity to speak up on what they feel strongly about.
It was decided that the first project is going to work on the problem of deforestation. From there, the PlantOx Project was created. Everyone worked hard for plantations, sharing the ideas and collaborating with like-minded organizations to plant more oxygen for a better future.
Join and support our young leaders as they restlessly work on making a change for a better world!!
Leia along with 10 volunteers from different parts of Lima planted 17 trees in Chosica, San Juan de Lurigancho, and Central Lima. They bought middle-sized trees and plants, took their tools, and went to places to plant them!
DFC Luxembourg had two DFC workshops and the Story of Change that came out was to support the PlantOx Project. So, 11 children planted 6 trees (3 apple and 3 mirabelle trees, which are all regional/local fruit tree variations) on 20th of November which is also the National Day of the Tree in Luxembourg.
Tijana received a grant of 400 $ to plant trees in Serbia. Along with 11 volunteers, she planted 40 trees in her community. Friends and DFC Serbia country partners helped and all of the community was happy to see work done right by the Danube.
