We can all have a huge impact and the Ambassador of 1 Heart 1 Tree I wish to introduce is Jadav Paying, a truly inspirational character ! He is a shepherd from the Mishing community in Assam and what he has done is extraordinary. He spent 35 years of his life replanting, with his own hands, a desert zone that is today a 550-hectares forest, with leopards, elephants, rhinos and tigers.
It shows that no matter how powerfull, how old or how wealthy you are, you can all have an amazing impact !!!
And this resonated with 1 Heart 1 Tree, a collaborative artwork taking place on the Eiffel Tower for the United Nations' Conference on Climate Change COP21 in Paris inviting all participants to act together to have a huge impact.
Each participant is invited to plant a tree in reforestation programs around the globe, and they'll see the tree growing symbolically on the Eiffel Tower with their name on it.
We can all be part of the solution ! Support us and reserve a tree that will grow on the Eiffel Tower and in a reforestation program. Jadav's forest is now protected and is part of our reforestation programs. We want to help Jadav Payeng, through “1 Heart 1 Tree”, to reforest two other neighbouring islands, with an area of 2.000 hectares in total.
