What exactly does the Global Board do?

The Global Board is a democratically elected body. Its structure is based on the UNEP model, which divides the world into eight regions according to their population size. 

The goal of the Global Board is to represent the generations of our ambassadors in certain organization-wide decisions. Global Board Members work hand in hand to grow our worldwide community and create new initiatives or projects that can have a global impact. Furthermore, they represent Plant-for-the-Planet through speeches, press conferences, press releases, and public statements.

Through their engagement, they raise further awareness amongst children and adults about the issues of the climate crisis and global justice and empower the younger generations to start their own clubs, host local activities, and plant trees. The Global Board is mandated to charter all Plant-for-the-Planet Clubs, monitor their progress and provide guidance in the implementation of their activities.
