What is Plant-for-the-Planet? Plant-for-the-Planet is a global movement of children.

It was started in 2007 in Germany by 9-year-old Felix who had to do a school assignment on climate change. Inspired by the example of Wangari Maathai, he called upon his peers to plant millions of trees to stop climate change. Today, children in more than 90 countries have planted trees for climate justice.
