Greenpop's Trees for Zambia 2013 is underway, 1021 trees planted in first week and Earth Fest

Greenpop has embarked on its second Trees for Zambia Action Event, from 7 – 28 July 2013.  The Trees for Zambia project is a reforestation project in Livingstone and an eco-awareness campaign.  The 3-week tree planting event is coupled with an ongoing campaign to inspire awareness about deforestation, climate change, tree planting, environmental sustainability and alternative energy sources. Trees for Zambia 2013 volunteers will plant indigenous and fruit trees in schools, on subsistence farms and in reforestation sites, sourcing as many trees as possible from local small scale growers. Again Greenpop will host educational workshops for school children, subsistence farmers and volunteers. “Trees for Zambia” is a holistic awareness campaign based on getting people active about making sustainable changes.

This year has a particular focus on alternative energy sources namely solar energy and will see the making of solar cookers and awareness-raising on their use. Volunteers from around the world are in Livingstone for one, two or three weeks and are guaranteed a rewarding and fun experience and are based at the Greenpop Village (found at the Livingstone Safari Lodge half way between Victoria Falls and Livingstone town).

Greenpop believes greening and sustainable living can be fun and is very excited about the Trees for Zambia project providing this avenue for volunteers. We are excited to build connections with those working in Zambia on reforestation and environmental awareness and are looking forward to spending time with like-minded people who are ready to plant, learn, educate, share and explore their way towards sustainable change. 

Trees for Zambia is 3 weeks of planting, solar cooking, film evenings, speaker evenings, football games, sustainability workshops, tree identification courses, teacher training, educational wall murals, live music evenings, food forest experiments, and lots more fun.
