100 Million Trees by 2017
Description/achievement of initiative

Environment Online - ENO is a global virtual school and network for sustainable development. There are over 7 000 schools involved in 150 countries. Schools started to plant trees in 2004 and have planted 7 million by now. Our aim is to plant 100 million trees by 2017.

Implementation methodologies

ENO is based on volunteering and networking. Since 2000 it has reached many schools and partner organisations that are aware of ENO and its tree planting campaign. There are national coordinators in 141 countries. In 2011 ENO organised a conference in Finland where national coordinators made their plans how to reach the goal. Trees are planted especially in UN thematic days in May (ecological biodiversity) and September (day for peace). Our commitment is very challenging and therefore we need national governments to help us in practical things. Schools are willing to act in ENO.
