The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) has launched a major worldwide tree planting campaign. This Campaign encourages individuals, children and youth groups, farmers, schools, communities, business and industry, civil society organizations and governments to enter tree planting pledges on the online form with the objective of planting at least one billion trees worldwide during 2007.

The Billion Tree Campaign was inspired by Professor Wangari Maathai. She is the founder of Kenya's Green Belt Movement. This organization has planted more than 30 million trees in 12 African countries since 1977. Professor Wangari Maathai is the winner of 2004 Nobel Peace Prize.

UNEP will supply all the plants needed. All participants will receive a certificate of involvement. Those who have planted more than 10,000 trees and secure their survival will receive certificates from reputed organisations. Advice on tree planting is also available on their website.
