What is WeNeedTrees Association?
WeNeedTrees.net is a non-profit Swiss association based in Geneva, Switzerland, that was founded by Mohammad Tajeran in 2014. Mr. Tajeran has been traveling the world on bicycle since 2007, and as of September 2015, has logged over 57,000 kilometers, while promoting love and respect for nature and emphasizing the importance of a healthy and sustainable environment for the well-being of mankind. He does this by visiting schools, speaking and dialoguing with students, bringing out the tree as a universal symbol of life and giving. As of March 2015, Mr. Tajeran has visited 160 schools in 47 countries and, with the help of students and individuals, has planted 990 trees along side with students. Inspired by his travels and warm, welcoming receptions, he decided in 2014 to start a non-profit association to empower like-minded individuals to join him in promoting and continuing his work at the local levels.
The mission of WeNeedTrees Association is to educate and build awareness of the importance of each individual’s role in sustaining a healthy environment through Love and Respect for nature. Love and Respect for nature provides Hope for a better world.
The Association will develop resources for teachers and students to help with an understanding and appreciation of the importance of trees in our well-being and the well-being of the planet to sustain life as we know it.
