Most of us know that our climate is in deep trouble. If we are going to keep global temperature rise from topping 1.5 degrees Celsius, we must reduce the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) we put into the atmosphere by eliminating the use of fossil fuels. But we must also draw down the excessive CO2 already in the atmosphere. Our native forests do this naturally, sequestering carbon within their roots, trunks, and branches. Scientists say trees are our best hope of drawdown of carbon. There are calls to plant 3 trillion trees, which will help, particularly as the trees grow, but we also need to stop cutting trees.
ReimagineYouth is a non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate changeraising awareness of the climate risks to health through advocacy campaigns, publications and policy briefs, encouraging representation of Reimagineyouth climate forums
A better understanding of the risks and effects of climate change on health will motivate and facilitate both behavioural change and societal support for the actions needed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Goal of ReimagineYouth is to
1) Promote Tree Planting
