About this project

Earthaid Solutions e.V. is an association founded by students from Germany and Switzerland. Our aim is to contribute to the protection of the environment and to provide solutions to fight global warming. Currently, we are focussing on planting trees in different locations such as Brazil, Kenya and Indonesia in order to tackle deforestation in these countries and help rebuilt the largest carbon dioxide storages. 

This project focuses on Indonesia, which has one of the highest rates of primary forest loss in the tropics (Margono et al., 2014). This rapid deforestation gravely endangers the country’s biodiversity (Austin et al., 2018). Large-scale palm oil and timber plantations contributed to more than 40% of the nationwide deforestation between 2000 and 2016 (Austin, Schwantes, Gu & Kasibhatla, 2019). It is therefore time to take action! 

To this end, we work in collaboration with a renowned environmental organisation called Eden Reforestation Projects. This organisation does not solely plant trees in places of need but also work with local populations to alleviate them from poverty. As such, locals are hired to reforest their land, which generates employment. Additionally, this creates an emotional bound between the populations and the trees they planted, which leads to them protecting their forests and, thus, reduces the risk of these trees being cut down in the future. 

This project aims to plant 35,000 trees in Indonesia. Once more, we ask for your support. Be involved and become the change towards a greener planet for future generations!
