TREE-LY AMAZING: Non-uniform day encourages students to make a difference

 Published on: 14th September 2023   |   By: Panayiota Demosthenous   |   Category: Uncategorized

A reforesting organisation is urging schools and students in Pinner to take part in a non-uniform day, which aims to teach the community about reforesting the planet.

JUST ONE Tree’s annual non-uniform day will take place on Friday, October 13.

Schools from all over the UK are eligible to take part and encourage children to bring in £1 which will go towards planting a tree and helping to reforest the planet.

To date, more than 200,000 children from 14 countries have joined together to plant more than a quarter of a million trees. This has enabled the non-profit initiative JUST ONE Tree to expand into more countries and become part of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.

Amanda Bronkhorst, CEO and founder of JUST ONE Tree, said: “JUST ONE Tree Day was born out of my passion to make a difference – not only for my young daughter, but for the future of all children.

“Many children today struggle with climate anxiety, caused by the reality of our climate crisis. But JUST ONE Tree Day tells them that we can all make a difference with a simple action. By taking direct action, it spreads hope and positivity. It’s important to involve our young, helping them tackle their worries of today while setting them up for a sustainable lifestyle that aids their future.”

The event is for both primary and secondary schools, and those taking part can also access lesson resources that fit in with the national curriculum. Children learn about photosynthesis, the benefits of trees for both people and wildlife, and the vital role trees play in reducing the impacts of climate change.
