Speaking at the Esri User Conference meant much to Felix: years ago, Wangari Maathai, who inspired us children to plant trees, has spoken at the Esri UC.
Jack Dangermond, founder of Esri, introduced Felix. That was a great honor to Felix. And of course, we're even more grateful that Jack in the end promised to plant 60,000 trees to offset the conference's carbon emissions.
While Felix told the story of Plant-for-the-Planet and presented our new online-tool to plant trees with various tree planting organizations, our friend Tom Crowther from the ETH Zurich talked about the amazing scientific backround of afforestation.
Soon, the Trillion Tree Campaign website and app will be launched for all users.
We're looking forward to plant Jack Dangermond's 60,000 trees on the Yucatán peninsula.
If you would like to plant trees as well, please make a donation. For 20 Euros, we can plant 20 trees.
