2020 was the year the world stopped.
Together we watched fires rage in Australia, the Amazon and the USA, we felt the devastation of rising flood water across the UK, we witnessed our seasons changing too quickly and the health of the planet declining alongside our own. Earlier this year the UN Environment Chief stated that humanity is placing too many pressures on the natural world and warned that failing to take care of the planet means that we are not taking care of ourselves.
Are we finally waking up to the reality that the health of the natural world has a direct impact on our own health?
This year I have been asking myself some really big questions
- How do we create a healthier, more just world for all?
- How do we create positive change in the face of so much global uncertainty?
- What can each of us do to build a healthy future?
- With decreasing habitats and wilderness, animals and humans are forced to live closer together.
The answer? Our forests are vital for our survival.
Trees sequester carbon from the atmosphere, cool our planet, support our water cycles, restore landscapes and provide food, shelter and livelihoods for millions of people around the world.
Forests are our future. Healthy trees equal healthy me!
I have chosen to be a part of TreeSisters and would love you to join me. Every month I fund reforestation across the tropics. A monthly donation supports ethical, community-focused tree planting across multiple tropical ecosystems. You will be making on-going committed investment in the future of our planet and the health of our global forests
