Felix Finkbeiner – Plant for the Planet

We are sharing a film from a remarkable young man called Felix Finkbeiner.

When Felix was 9 years old he stood in front of the United Nations General Assembly and asked the grownups a simple question:

“We children know adults know the challenges and they know the solutions,” he said. “We don’t know why there is so little action.”

Taking responsibility in his own hands, Felix created a remarkable environmental cause that has expanded into a global network of children activists working to slow the Earth’s warming by reforesting the planet.

Today, Finkbeiner is 19 and Plant-for-the-Planet, the environmental group he founded, together with the UN’s Billion Tree campaign, has planted more than 14 billion trees!

We are sharing a film from his talk at The Urban Future Conference.
