We’re thrilled to announce details of our inaugural Trees Are The Key Awareness Week taking place between 15th-21st March.

Our Team have got a stack of great ideas and ways you can dip your toes into the event – for now, pop a bookmark in your diary between Monday 15th and Sunday 21st March.

The final day of our first Trees Are The Key Awareness Week, the 21st March, is particularly important to us: the Mothers of the Forest women’s empowerment group was founded on that day in 2018.

Additionally since 2012, the 21st March has been recognised globally as the International Day of Forests.

The International Day of Forests was created by the United Nations Forum on Forests and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in collaboration with Governments, the Collaborative Partnership on Forests and other relevant organisations in the field.

It raises awareness and celebrates all types of forests. Across the world, countries are encouraged to undertake local, national and international efforts to organise tree-based events. The theme for each International Day of Forests is chosen by the Collaborative Partnership on Forests. 

This year, their theme is ‘Forest Restoration: a path to recovery and well-being’ which is a perfect fit for our inaugural week long celebration of trees.

PS: The 21st March is also our CEO, Tracey’s birthday: that woman was born to celebrate trees!
