Mission Green Earth: Stand Up Take Action
Join Live Earth in support of the Art of Living Foundation/ Stand Up Take Action's Mission Green Earth Campaign. Eight years ago, at the Millennium Summit, 189 country heads committed to work together “to build a safer, more prosperous and equitable world for all by 2015.” Mission Green Earth is one program in support of the seventh goal of the campaign: to ensure environmental sustainability.
This year, participants can show their support by joining Mission Green Earth in planting trees EVERYWHERE. The campaign is already active in India and in 88 other countries, and has a goal of planting 100 million trees before October 16th. It is said that the average person utilizes the oxygen of 16 trees to survive his/ her lifespan. Let’s work together and take action between now and October 16th to plant 100 million native, locally appropriate trees to support environmental sustainability.
