Tree Talks

You might already have heard about Ecosia (no?). But there are many more initiatives planting trees around the globe. In this series of lectures, our speakers would love to tell you their stories — and inspire you to start your own tree-planting organization? We already reveal one name: Bed and Tree, a start-up that plants a tree every time you book a holiday. More speakers to be announced!

Covid-19 and its environmental impact

We all read in the news that the current measures have a positive impact on the environment. In Venice, they’ve spotted dolphins in the beautiful blue water, in some areas of the world the air got so clear they can see mountains that were up to now hidden by air pollution. Great? Yes! But what about the impact on the long term? And which reporting is true? What do experts think about the situation? Join the online panel debate and have your questions answered by a multi-disciplinary team of experts.

The lecture will be broadcasted live on our Facebook page:
