As a part of their environmental program in 2006, the United Nations called to plant one billion trees until the end of 2007. So we asked ourselves, how can one actually track if and where these trees have been planted? We came to the conclusion that we should launch a website where you as a user can plant trees online. Basically, it allows you to plant your own trees or donate different kinds of trees, which will later be planted by us.
Since we can guarantee the best protection of your plants, we decided to exclusively focus on Germany. This leaves us with a rather small amount of administrative costs, as we do not have encounter long ( and environmental unfriendly) flights to other destinations nor does is involve any difficult approval or authorisation procedures – as easy as 1,2.3. A simple, straightforward and lean approach hoping to get the support of many, many others!
Our team is built around the core group consisting of six people with all kinds of backgrounds. The latter helps us to combine various types of expertise from programming, graphical designs, business administration as well as forest management into one forceful tool. The majority of our team members earn money within their profession and support IPAT on a voluntary basis. In addition, we receive a huge amount of support from the community – especially when it comes to take action and plant the trees.
Wir haben für das Geld der Google Impact Challenge einen Praktikanten mit Programmierkenntnissen eingestellt. Seit Anfang Mai arbeitet er Vollzeit mit Unterstützung unserer (ehrenamtlichen) Entwickler an dem Relaunch. Die neue Webseite soll Ende Oktober 2016 online gehen.
Vielen herzlichen Dank nochmal an alle, die uns ihre Stimme gegeben haben!
