We Make Ourselves Heard
Over 88,000 children and youth trained at our 1,500 Academies in 74 countries. We teach each other about the climate crisis to then fight for our future by planting trees, giving speeches, protest, and more.
The Five Big Steps of a Climate Justice Ambassador
There are many ways to become active and fight for your future. Pick and choose what feels best for you!
1. Become an Ambassador
As Plant-for-the-Planet Climate Justice Ambassadors we are part of a worldwide network. We spread our vision of climate justice and global citizenship to our schools, families, and friends through giving presentations and taking action. Our common mission is to plant trees.
By joining an Academy you will:
- Learn why we are on a mission to plant a trillion trees.
- Learn how to get started and motivate others to participate.
2. Act Up! Give speeches, plant trees, protest, and more!
Your mission as a Climate Justice Ambassador is to explain to others the importance of planting trees! Besides giving lectures or participating in discussions, there are many other things you can do to spread the word:
Set a tree goal for you and your family or set your own. If every person plants 1,000 trees by 2030 and every company plants 1,000 trees for every employee, we will reach the 1,000 billion trees.
3. Plant-for-the-Planet Clubs
Planning activities with others is more fun? We think so too. That's why there are local Plant-for-the-Planet Clubs in some countries across the world that meet regularly to plan and carry out activities.
No club in your region yet? Just start your own! It’s very easy.
4. Come to the Youth Summit
At the annual Plant-for-the-Planet Youth Summit Climate Justice Ambassadors from all over the world get together and work on different topics.
Not only will you learn exciting background information on the climate crisis and get to know new projects from Plant-for-the-Planet, but you can also hear lectures from scientists or participate in different workshops and learn how you can achieve more as a Climate Justice Ambassador.
5. Run for the Global Board
Get active for our future.
As a member of the Global Board, help to decide the future of Plant-for-the-Planet. The board (aged 15 — 24) is elected once a year in August. Get to know the current Global Board and get informed about current projects and activities.
