We're tackling the climate crisis one tree (pose) at a time!
#treeposefortheplanet is a new campaign by The Gaia Movement.
Kicking off during the Nature Festival, you are invited to pose & photograph yourself in the yoga "tree pose” position, and in return for every tagged #treeposefortheplanet photo upload, we will fund the planting of one tree! Trees will be planted here in SA through Trees for Life's Habitat Initiative.
It's as easy as that!
#treeposefortheplanet is for people of all ages, backgrounds and body shapes.
Remember the feeling of putting your feet on the earth?
Of taking moment to pause, listen and move, in nature.
Let's celebrate and reconnect with the nature around us as well as remembering what is at risk due to climate change.
“New quantitative evaluation shows [forest] restoration isn’t just one of our climate change solutions, it is overwhelmingly the top one,” - Prof Tom Crowther, ETH Zürich
