About Greenpop:  Greenpop is a social enterprise that believes greening and sustainable living can be fun, POPular and accessible for all. They believe in inspiring a greener, more conscious, inclusive movement and do this through tree planting projects, green events, education, social media, voluntourism and activating people to start DOING! Since its inception in September 2010, Greenpop has planted over 24,000 trees in over 230 beneficiary schools, crèches, orphanages, old-age homes, community centers, and deforested areas. 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. www.greenpop.org

About Trees for Zambia:  Earth Fest will be taking place during Trees for Zambia in celebration of the event.  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 2013 will be the second action event hosted in Livingstone to boost the project and plant 5000 trees in schools, on subsistence farms and in reforestation sites.  Again we’ll host educational  workshops for school children, subsistence farmers and volunteers. Trees for Zambia is a holistic awareness campaign based on getting people active about making sustainable changes.

The project aims to:

·        Create awareness around the deforestation issue and highlight grassroots solutions that can start being implemented

·        Develop a culture of planting trees within communities through conservation education, and by teaching people how to plant and look after trees

·        Highlight the global value of conserving the world’s natural forests

·        Promote and provide alternative energy sources (particularly solar cooking), so that people can move 
away from the dependence on charcoal

·        Start reforestation in protected forest sites to replace the pioneer trees, allowing for new growth and regeneration of soil content

·        Educate children on their natural environment, and help feed them by planting fruit trees at under- resourced schools

·        Promote conservation farming methods to replace slash and burn techniques that will stop erosion and soil degradation, create more cost-efficient farms and help avoid fires

·        Start a micro tree nursery enterprise at a selected number of subsistence farms, so that we can provide farmers with an additional income by buying trees from them

·        Create an exciting and stimulating programme of practical work, lectures and workshops for local and international volunteers, through which they can educate themselves and be actively involved in environmental issues

Activities at the project include planting indigenous and fruit trees, working to set up micro-nursery enterprises in surrounding communities, implementing conservation education at local schools, promoting conservation farming techniques and fire prevention among small-scale subsistence farmers, promoting alternative energy sources such as solar cooking in order to reduce the region’s dependence on  unsustainable charcoal burning, and a radio and video awareness campaign.  If you would like more information on the Earth Fest event or Trees for Zambia as a whole or would care to request to cover the event in your publication, please contact Lauren O’Donnell via lauren@greenpop.org or +27 (0)21 461 9265 / +27 (0)83 412 8006/ +26(0)96 954 0817. We greatly appreciate all promotions and coverage. For other queries about Greenpop or this particular Trees for

Zambia event, please email zambia@greenpop.org, and we’ll make sure to answer your message promptly or pass on your message to the appropriate department.
