What is the Global Board?

The global board is a democratically elected body with representatives from all regions around the globe and serves for a period of one-year. The goal of the Global Board is to give Plant-for-the-Planet a focus and make organisation-wide decisions, Global Board members work hand in hand to grow our worldwide community, create new initiatives or projects that can have a global impact and help us plant more trees and empower more children and youth to start their own clubs and local activities. The Global board is also mandated to charter all plant-for-the-planet’s clubs, monitor their progress and provide guidance in the implementation of their activities. And much more!

I am motivated to serve on the board because; I want to create more awareness about our Plant-for-the-Planet App, the Trillion Tree Campaign and in the establishment of more clubs to be able to reach our goals. In addition, I want to contribute towards the decision making processes at Plant-for-the-Planet.”

Being a Global Board Member is an opportunity to give back what I have learned.”

I was very impressed by the efforts the initiative puts into climate action and I knew that I wanted to take part in it. So I first joined as a program coordinator then I had the honor to be part of the Global Board last year and I am happy to be part of this year’s Global Board to represent the MENA region and hopefully contribute to Plant-for-the-Planet's vision.”

As a young Brazilian, I want to be able to represent and give voice to youth in decision-making spaces. As part of the global picture, I believe I can learn even more about all the diversity and cultures of other countries and share a little bit of my country as well. For together we are strong.“
