Trillion Trees www.trilliontrees.org is a collaboration between three of the world’s largest conservation organisations, Birdlife International, WCS (Wildlife Conservation Society) and WWF (Worldwide Fund for Nature). Stuart Dainton, Head of Trillion Trees WWF-UK, will introduce this international project and explain it's not just about planting trees but that they are working to see one trillion trees re-grown, saved from loss and better protected around the world by 2050. He will talk about how this worldwide collaborative project aims to do this and to work towards a world where people and nature can thrive.
