Caribbean Tree Planting Week: Protecting Biodiversity, Restoring Ecosystems, Strengthening Cultural Roots

Since February 2020, the Caribbean Philanthropic Alliance (CariPhilAlliance) and its network of partners have mobilized youth, community-based and non-governmental organizations across 22 Caribbean countries and territories to plant more than 1.4 million trees, through the Caribbean Tree Planting Project (CTPP).

The upsurge in enthusiasm and advocacy, especially through youth action – the CariPhilAlliance Tree Planting Ambassadors have inspired CariPhilAlliance’s inaugural Caribbean Tree Planting Week (CTPW), to be celebrated virtually from July 5 to 11, 2021.

The week’s events, under the theme “Protecting Biodiversity and Cultural Heritage in the Caribbean,” aim to build public awareness of the importance of planting trees – a critical part of the region’s environmental and cultural heritage.
