IT STARTS WITH JUST ONE TREE
1: THE SITUATION
The Earth is losing its trees. And after trees are cut down, the landscape loses its fertility. Hunger and conflict grow. Biodiversity dwindles, and water supplies dry up. Degraded land hastens climate change. We have less than ten years to turn it around. But there is something we can do.
2: THE SOLUTION
Plant more trees. Support eco-agriculture. Build healthy soil. We don’t just stick one tree in ground—we plant ecosystems. Our holistic approach with local farming communities helps local people to restore living soil and biodiversity through “agro-ecology,” creating food security,rural income, and soil health. Thriving communities care for their forests. Restored landscapes “draw down” CO2 into trees, plants, and soil.
3: JOIN US
Help people seed their future--and ours. WIth our local partners, we practice agoforestry to restore the ecology and economy of some of the world's poorest places. We help communities to renew and protect healthy landscapes; return barren land to fertility; nurture biodiversity; develop long-term livelihoods; and preserve cultural values. We create local resilience, mitigate climate change, and preserve the planet for future generations.
Plant Trees. Regenerate Soil. Reverse Climate Change.
Where We Plant
WHAT ARE CARBON OFFSETS?
WE REGREEN THE WORLD
Since 2006, our award-winning programs have pioneered the now-growing field of regeneration in 10 countries. We go “beyond sustainability” to restore the ecology and economy of the world’s poorest places.
We are foresters. We are educators. We are innovators. We are communicators. We are a global movement.
Over the past 14 years, we have pioneered an integrated suite of unique holistic programs that have planted 3 million trees in Kenya alone. We provide eco-education to children and farmers. We help start ecology-based local enterprises. We reach the world through creative media.
Community-based reforestation and agroecology
Restoration of Kenya’s Rumuruti Forest and Pungu Watershed; Ethiopia’s Menagasha Forest; Mexico’s San Juan Atzingo Forest; support of biocultural practices
Biodiverse landscape restoration; community woodlots; reintroduction of indigenous crops
Restoration of soil organic matter (SOM) for bionutrient-dense food and carbon sequestration
Education In 85 GreenWorld Schools, thousands of Kenyan children plant seedbed nurseries and care for multipurpose trees that also provide nutrition; thousands of farmers learn regenerative agriculture
Social enterprise including complementary currencies; moringa oil; moringa-fortified maize flour
Appropriate technology including “green” charcoal to reduce tree-cutting and rainwater catchment
Women’s empowerment including reproductive health
Social Healing including Trees for Peace; youth-elder alliances to restore sacred kaya forests; conflict resolution between ethnicities, political rivals, and faith traditions.
Media and Public Outreach including “Text TREE” on 14 Times Square “Jumbotrons” on EarthDay; Green World Children’s Choirs (with Disney composer Alan Menken); conferences (ReGen18.com)
