Re-connecting students with nature and each other
Some 89% of surveyed youth think young people can make a difference on climate change.
But the coronavirus pandemic has had a severe impact on young people, disconnecting them from their peers and interrupting their studies. By planting, caring for and learning about trees in school, young people can:
- Reconnect, with nature, each other and their school and teachers.
- Learn, why trees matter to their health and learn how to create a healthier environment.
- Share, their new knowledge, experiences and compassion with the world, helping to create a healthier future for all life on earth.
There are several ways to create a #ForceForNature in your school.
Orchard for Schools free tree packs
Thanks to support from the Daily Mail, you can apply for a pack to plant a small orchard or fruiting hedgerow in your school. We’ll provide all the resources and information you need to plant trees this autumn/winter planting season.

Branching Out Fund
Funding is available for schools and community groups proposing to undertake well-planned tree and hedge planting projects this winter (November 2020 – March 2021), preferably during National Tree Week – 28 November – 6 December 2020.
