You have Championed a Tree
Your trees are part of the Earthwatch Europe Tiny Forest programme, reconnecting people with nature, mitigating the impacts of climate change and bringing wild spaces to urban areas.
Super tiny, super powerful
Tiny Forest is more than just trees. This amazing phenomenon reconnects people with nature, enhances wellbeing, helps mitigate the impacts of climate change and provides nature-rich habitat patches to support urban wildlife.
Tiny Forest brings the benefits of a forest right into the heart of our cities and urban spaces.
Earthwatch planted the UK’s first Tiny Forest in the UK in 2020. Since then the movement has grown to over 200 forests, bringing together communities, public sector and businesses.
Breathing life back into our cities
84% of the UK population now live in urban areas. While urbanisation is increasing, UK urban green space is on an alarming downward trend. This means that people living in urban spaces have less and less access to the natural world.
The UK is one of the most nature depleted countries in the world and ranks bottom in Europe for nature connectedness. Our lack of provision of good-quality, biodiverse urban green space will continue to exacerbate these problems.
Since 2020, Earthwatch has worked with partners and communities across the UK to plant over 200 Tiny Forests – bringing the benefits of a forest right into the heart of our cities and urban spaces.
