Greenpop puts fun into saving the planet
Greenpop is an environmental organization on a mission to (re)connect people with our planet.

They believe green and sustainable living can be fun, popular and accessible for all and they have tried to raise awareness through a more conscious, inclusive movement.

Their incredible activities include tree planting projects, green events like Earth Fest, education, social media, voluntary work and activating people to start DOING!

Since its inception in September 2010, Greenpop has planted over 40,100 trees in over 270 beneficiary schools, creches, orphanages, old-age homes, community centers, and deforested areas in Zambia and South Africa.

Creative tree-care programs have been implemented and children, community members, corporates and volunteers are getting their hands dirty, learning a lot and loving it.

About Trees for Zambia:

Trees for Zambia is a holistic awareness campaign based on getting people active about making sustainable changes.

Zambia has one of the highest deforestation rates in the world and this issue affects the whole of Southern Africa – climate change and deforestation are not country-specific challenges.

In 2012 Greenpop launched Trees for Zambia, a reforestation and eco-awareness project which began with a 3-week tree planting event and was followed by an ongoing campaign to inspire awareness about deforestation, climate change, tree planting, environmental sustainability and alternative energy sources.

Trees for Zambia 2014 will be the third festival of action hosted in Livingstone to boost the project.

From 15 June to 6 July, Greenpop aims to plant between 4000 and 5000 trees in schools, on subsistence farms and in reforestation sites.

Once again Greenpop will host educational workshops for school children, subsistence farmers and volunteers.

Additionally, for the first time, Greenpop is launching its interactive Participation Project, in which volunteers can contribute their own skills and expertise by educating others on issues relevant to environmental awareness and sustainability.
