On Friday 16th October, hundreds of schools across the country will take part in the second ‘JUST ONE Tree Day’ – a national non-uniform day when children are encouraged to bring in £1 to plant a tree and help reforest the planet. (Please note: in Scotland, the day will be held on Friday 2nd October.)
Organised by our partners JUST ONE Tree – a British not-for-profit dedicated to removing CO2 from the atmosphere through global reforestation – the fundraising day was set up to show children and young people how individual actions can make a difference against the climate and biodiversity crises. For every £1 raised, a tree is planted.
Schools can sign up here.
On the inaugural ‘JUST ONE Tree Day’ in 2019, over 350 schools and 80,000 pupils took part, raising money to fund tree planting in Haiti, Indonesia, Kenya, Madagascar, Mozambique, Nepal and Zambia, via its global network of reforestation charity partners.
