“You must be the change you wish to see in the world” Ghandi
Tree-Nation is an ecological project with a focused objective: To plant 8 million trees in Africa to fight Climate Change & Poverty! Large-scale plantation of trees will increase the land’s productivity and re-generate the soil.
Tree-nation is an online community in which you can buy your own tree and become the guardian of a real and happy tree that we will plant in our park in Niger.
Our objective is two-fold: Primarily environmental, but also closely linked to the humanitarian aid that it will provide in the long term. The project will benefit local populations in terms of welfare, education and farming practices. And that’s not all…
The benefits of preventing desertification extend beyond trees to other kinds of plant and animal life. Any opportunity to re-introduce and/or help prevent any endangered species will therefore become an integral part of our mission.
“Desertification is potentially the most threatening ecosystem change impacting livelihoods of the poor.” (United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification www.unccd.int).
Desertification is not about advancing deserts, it is about land degradation caused by climate change and humaninduced factors. That’s right, US! By planting your tree, you can help combat this process and regenerate the productivity of the land.
We have chosen to plant our large-scale park in Niger, the poorest country in the world according to the HDI index (177/177 developing countries –http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UN_Human_Development_Index). Africa, and especially its Sub-Saharan part, is the area that is most affected by desertification and poverty, which is why we are concentrating our efforts in this region.
We will work closely with local communities, nurseries and organisations to ensure that we create the best possible environment for the trees to grow steadily. We believe that the combination of international expertise, privately invested funds and local community knowledge will be key ingredients to a successful project.
You! On our interactive website, as a member of the Tree-Nation community, you will play an active role in the development of the project: contributing suggestions, sharing photos and gathering ideas in the Tree-Blogs. The community will provide a platform through which everyone including, scientific experts, celebrities, politicians and students can debate and resolve global environmental challenges, and even create their own projects.
Tree-Nation as a business hopes to inspire its community members to take on environmental challenges themselves. The community is crucial, as it will determine the growth and development of Tree-Nation and further projects that it pursues.
