Today’s Solutions: September 22, 2021

As the effects of climate change become harder and harder to ignore, communities from all over the globe exerting more effort to reverse generations of unsustainable and damaging practices.

Take, for instance, the local climate-change group from a village on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in the UK, that plans to plant hundreds of trees in an effort to tackle the climate crisis. One of the members of this group, Bob Sampson, has written to local landowners asking permission to grow trees on their land. So far, seven have agreed to support the cause.

Local volunteers are now being recruited to sponsor and actually plant the trees. For the low price of £2, willing villagers pay for the tree itself, a cane, and a spiral to protect it from rabbits. More than 150 trees have already been sponsored to be planted this spring.

A welcome benefit from the pandemic and widespread lockdown is that more people have the time to turn their attention to tackling the climate crisis. Since the first lockdown in the UK, there have been more and more groups, such as the one Sampson is part of, getting involved in projects aimed at improving local environments.

The Royal Horticultural Society is also inviting people to plant trees in memory of those who have lost their lives during the pandemic, which is healing on a personal level, but also globally as we work together to make the world a greener place.
