Youth for Forest (YFF): Network of regreening projects

Our YCA’s wanted to keep themselves accountable and decided to offset the footprint that resulted from the transportations for the Climate Democracy and Justice III Summit that took place in the summer of 2019, in Greece. That accounts for around 40 tons of CO2.
During this project, our Youth Climate Ambassadors will be recruited to monitor and evaluate the progress of the regreening/restoration projects in their region.

Our little thing is planting trees.
