SustyVibes is proud to announce her latest project in partnership with the British High Commission, being the #Communitrees project which was launched on the 5th of December, 2020. #Communitrees is a community-based tree planting and climate advocacy project which aims to plant 5000 trees in Lagos and Abuja by April, 2021. This project will run alongside an advocacy drive among community members. We will be planting indigenous trees in selected communities across Lagos and Abuja while stimulating both online and physical conversations on the pivotal role of tree planting in climate action.
#Communitrees is supported by the British High Commission in Nigeria as part of a larger #NigeriaForNature initiative aimed at encouraging and increasing climate action in communities across Nigeria.
Community participation is at the very heart of our project – hence the inclusion of community members in all stages of the project process; from deliberations to execution. SustyVibes will also work with youth volunteers and stakeholders to drive the implementation of this project.
We will commence online awareness and engagements across all our social media platforms in February, 2021 while physical advocacy and tree planting will begin in the selected communities in March, 2021, with strict adherence to Covid-19 protocols.
Climate change is currently the biggest challenge of the 21st century. As the planet continues to heat, we risk facing a catastrophic collapse that threatens life on earth. Nature-based solutions such as tree planting have proven to be very effective at mitigating climate change. Tree planting is an easy and cheap way for citizens to take #ClimateAction for the environment. We call on interested members of the public to join us in our tree planting sessions or support us virtually. Please visit https://sustyvibes.com/communitrees/ for more details.
