Plant for The Planet

A children’s initiative Plant-for-the-Planet is initiated by 9-year-old Felix Finkbeiner.

Inspired by Wangari Maathai, who planted 30 million trees in Africa in 30 years, Felix formulated his vision:
Children could plant one million trees in every country on earth and thereby offset CO2 emissions all on their own, while adults are still talking about doing it. Each tree binds a CO2 intake of 10 kg per year.

On 28th October, 2013 the Cuomo Foundation invited the young Felix Finkbeiner to present his charity during the Valve Repair Trilogy Conference organised by the company Edward Lifescience in Monaco.

Felix is the Founder of “Plant for The Planet”, a children’s initiative that aims to raise awareness on the issues of climate change. During this event, the Cuomo Foundation agreed to sponsor the planting of 5,000 trees in Mexico, a Plant for the Planet action.
