Climate: Launch of the "Plant Ahead" campaign
In January 2007, following a presentation on the climate crisis, Felix Finkbeiner, who was then aged nine, invited his friends to plant a million trees in every country. This "Plant For the Planet" movement to combat deforestation spread worldwide, raising awareness. A total of 15 billion trees have been planted in 196 countries. The launch of the "Plant Ahead" campaign, the aim of which is to plant 3 billion trees, took place last Friday in Monaco, in the presence of H.S.H. Prince Albert II, at this event, a tree was planted in front of the Grimaldi Forum.
