Welcome to plant trees with ENO !

The next tree planting week will be 17-23 May 2021. 

Climate change is one of the most urgent and biggest problems. We all have to do our part to reduce the effect of climate change. A good way to tie carbon is to plant trees and forests! Schools have planted trees in ENO since 2004. ENO made a commitment of planting 100 million trees by 2017 in Rio+20 Summit. Schools planted 30 million trees and countries made their own commitments. The number was not yet reached but we are working on the achieve this number. We have organised tree planting contests called ENO Treelympics since 2014. A forest project will take place 2019-2025 based on climate agreement by schools in 2019 ( an answer to Paris agreement).

Short history of ENO Tree Planting Days

ENO started in 2000, The first four years were with mainly online activities. As many schools had problems with Internet we needed some activities offline. Then the idea of tree planting arose in 2004. The international day for peace was chosen as the first ENO Tree Planting Day and since then, every year ENO schools plant trees for peace around 21 September.

On 21st of September 2004, ENO tree planting gathered 50 schools in 30 countries. Tree planting made ENO more popular and next year over 200 schools joined.  Afterwards, another ENO tree planting day was organised around 22 May, the international day for biological diversity. Until the end of 2018, ENO Tree Planting Day has been organised 25 times.
