Thousands of New Fans in the US

The last days, we received many requests from the US and from all over the world. We suppose, it’s because of an article about Felix that has been published on the National Geographic website.

Laura Parker, author of the article, not only had talked to Felix, but also to the Amabassador for Climate Justice in Seattle, Aji, and to Tom Crother, scientist at Yale University.

Tom told Laura: “Felix asked the simple question: how many trees are there?” And then, Tom and his team began to count all the trees growing. He did so, because of us, he tells in the article: “Plant-for-the-Planet was certainly the inspiration for me.”

Felix mentioned why we children get active: “We’re going to be the victims of climate change. It is in our own self-interest to get children to act,” he says. “At the same time, I don’t think we can give up on this generation of adults and wait 20 or 30 years for our generation to come to power. We don’t have that time. All we can do is push them in the right direction.”

On Facebook, the article got thousands of “likes” and “shares”. Another video which was inspired by the article reached nearly one million viewers. 

Hopefully, these new fans plant trees! You as well can donate trees to help us reaching the 1.000 billion. Join now!
