Brief Description of the Project

This is an environmental education project. It is found that participation by the people is essential for environmental protection program to be effective. Public participation requires a process of education, to inform people about their environment and the means of protecting it, and to encourage them to participate in environmental protection efforts. The project targets school children and can get kids involved at an early age, so they will know from the beginning how important the environment is. By focusing on China's children we hope that Trees for Life project can educate a new "green generation", who will be well-prepared for the task of protecting China's environment in the 21st century.

It is also a reforestation project. Planting trees from a seed is a very important aspect of China's environmental protection efforts. Trees can avert soil erosion, improve air quality, help to counter the threat of global warming, provide habitat for indigenous animal life, etc.. So the usefulness and need for trees are very significant.
