Welcome to plant trees with ENO!
– The next tree planting day: tue 21 Sep 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 and communities have planted trees with ENO since 2004.
ENO Environment Online – a global school and community network for sustainable development, invites your school, group or community to participate in international tree planting event!
Since the launch in 2000, over 10 000 schools in 157 countries have taken part and made concrete deeds for the environment. We have planted trees since 2004 around two annual days standing together with UN; for International Day for Biological Diversity 22 May and for International Day of Peace 21 September. And of course you can participate and plant at any day throughout the year depending on a suitable season for planting in your country.
The next tree planting day “Plant a tree for an equitable and sustainable world -with celebrity!” will be held on tue 21 Sep 2021. We at ENO encourage your school, class or group to invite local celebrities to plant trees with you. Celebrity can be a sport or cultural person, a miss or mister, municipal influencer, local spokesperson… you name it! The group and students can think questions they would like to pose for the celebrity and make a reportage of fhe event.

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 2020, ENO Tree Planting Day has been organised 29 times.
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).
