A green pact for a new balance of humans and nature
for the health of all citizens
The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago.
The second best time is now.
The Covid-19 pandemic has taught us that human health and that of the planet are closely related: we all live in the same ecosystem. Learning to respect it is essential for the survival of humans and all other forms of life. This is the very purpose of weTree project. Born from a lucky encounter between women’s initiatives for sustainability and equal opportunities, it wants to give new breath to the post-pandemic world, enhancing environmental awareness in a circular perspective.
weTree has ambitious goals
- Developing green areas in Italian cities dedicated to women who have distinguished themselves by their activities for a better society
- Disseminating good green practices among citizens
- Encouraging local authorities to endorse a pact in support of individual initiatives
