Reforest the World

If you feel low or are seeking meaning to your life, try this: order a hundred native tree saplings from a nursery (a mix of oaks, silver birches and wild cherries), then go and plant them out in an ecologically deprived area with a hundred children between 5 - 8 years of age. After you’ve created a new woodland, with the smell of earth on your hands, your face upturned to the rain, sun, and wind, you will feel light, joyful, uplifted - this I promise you. We talk to Andreas Kornevall who plants trees with children to restore the world.
