The Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) has established the Global Forest Fund to help minimise the effects of CO2 emissions from the increased travel activity worldwide. The Fund supports schools and organisations by funding CO2 compensation efforts such as planting trees and environmental education activities.
The Global Forest Fund has been established by FEE to offset CO2 emissions from travel. This non-profit fund is managed by FEE’s International Learning about Forests Coordination (LEAF). The fund invests 90% of its income directly into tree planting and other CO2 compensation efforts that are combined with environmental education activities.
Recent uses of the fund include the establishment of a botanical garden by the Saengthong Vitthaya School in Thailand and a seminar about micro forest promotion organized by the Thiruvonam School (Government Higher Secondary School) in India. These and other projects are described in the reports of FEE’S Global Forest Fund.
Funding for tree planting and other environmental education activities are both available for organizations from countries within and outside the FEE network. From countries within the FEE network, the following organizations can apply for funding through their national LEAF coordinator:
Organisations from countries outside the FEE network can apply for school funding through the International LEAF Coordination. However, a maximum of 1/3 of the total annual amount in the fund can be allocated to countries outside FEE’s network.
Please contact the International LEAF Coordination before completing and sending your request for funding.
