Plant and protect 1000 billion trees together – thirty high-ranking representatives from business, politics and civil society announced this goal last Friday. They all signed the Trillion Tree Declaration.
Together with Prince Albert II of Monaco Felix was the first to sign the declaration.
The list of signatories is impressive. Patricia Espinosa, Secretary General of the UNFCCC, signed it as well as Alfred Ritter (Ritter Sport). We were especially honored by the support of the Gyalwang Drukpa, who was guest of honor at the PlantAhead launch event in Monaco, has given his own pledge to plant the trees: "I am pleased to announce 1 million trees in a very short time with my friends, my students and the people of the world." The Gyalwang Drukpa is the head of the Drukpa Lineage, one of the most influential schools of Buddhism in the Himalayas and a dedicated environmental and animal rights activist.
