One Nature – One World – Our Future
Getting back to the green issue that haunts us everyday. We’ve found you something to be apart of, that is ultra cool and spreads its wings globally.
The Green Wave project aims to help meet the goals of the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity by educating young people on the importance of biodiversity. In an amazingly ambitious programme, students from schools all across the world have been invited to mark the International Day for Biodiversity each year by planting a single tree of an indigenous or locally important species.
At 10 a.m. local time on May 22, 2009, these student groups will each plant or water their tree, uniting to send a ‘green wave’ from east to west around the planet. The Green Wave is taking a positive step toward sustaining biodiversity all over the world, and it’s lovely to see the world of youth uniting to give a gift back to nature.
