The world’s forest landscapes are endangered, so continuous efforts are needed to help combat the global destruction. Stand For Trees, the flagship program of Code REDD, aims to empower others to take real and effective action. There are so many communities and wildlife that depend on the forests, they desperately need our help. Living beings call these forests “their home”
With Climate Week and Global Citizen Festival week in the past, it is important to reflect on the fantastic work carried out through Stand For Trees, which is a community of people who are taking global action to protect forests all over the world. The team also works to combat climate change, a positive initiative aimed to help protect trees and promote global awareness of nature and our surroundings.
Stand For Trees believes that Climate Week NYC summit is one of the key summits where the agenda of driving climate action forward really happens. A member of the organisation said: “It is unique in that governments, NGOs and business will all be present to discuss goals and create effective partnerships.
“It is also strategically planned alongside the UN General Assembly meetings, so there are a lot of influencers present.”
Stand For Trees work closely with Global Citizen. They represent one of their biggest partners and a group that they wish to work closely with ongoing. They strive ‘For Freedom. For Justice. For All.’ During Global Citizen week, they turned NYC into an area of advocacy. Lots of events took place, bringing together people from all walks of life to one place where ideas were shared and action was taken. World leaders are promising to commit to delivering a world without extreme poverty by 2030.
Stand For Tree’s has an admiring mission to halt deforestation by “empowering individuals”. They consistently wish to inspire others to take action to prevent forest loss, which is the number one cause of species extinction and the second-leading cause of CO2 emissions in the world. Their thoughtful work is transforming; however, they are forever in need of more support as the situation worsens.
Deforestation is a comprehensive crisis, one that is getting rid of widespread forests every 48 hours. These forests are not only an abundance of species’ home, but forests on our planet provide life with oxygen, an essential part of life on earth.
Since 2007 the valued organisation has been working excessively, non-stop, with their mission at the forefront of their minds. Their passion and drive for change are enthusing, it is a leading way in making a sincere difference on this planet, one that is led by doing good for something greater than our self.
The international community for years now has been collaboratively working with the REDD+ program to reduce emissions from deforestation as well as forest degradation. Stand For Trees call on people from all over the world to be a part of this overwhelming solution, a solution that can cause serious, positive impact.
By utilising the power of the online realm – social media and technology more generally – a togetherness of people can help communities who are affected by deforestation practices. Many tropical forest countries have species that are at risk and face the danger of extinction now and in years to come, and this is their sudden reality.
It is true to say that our trees are much more worthy standing tall than being chopped down. Trees stand tall for us, by helping us and giving life on earth a home, a safe haven. What do we do for them? We need to be mindful of threatened wildlife that is hopeless and voiceless and empower one another to help trees and curb climate change for the greater good.
A member of the organisation said: “We inspire awareness of the value of forests through art, information, and technology.” The cultural use of inspiration is effective; it allows people from all over the world to connect and understand the organisation’s actions and goals in different ways. By utilising different mediums to communicate, the awareness has the potential to become even more extensive.
As they say, “When you Stand For Trees, you stand for investing in communities who are pursuing new economic opportunities”, now isn’t that worth being a part of and fighting for?
