Join the Green Wave to be part of Global Network

Green Wave is a campaign of UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) involving tree planting celebrated worldwide on 22 May every year marking the International Day for Biological Diversity.

Students and Youth groups plant their favorite local tree sapling/s sharp at 10:00 a.m local time (IST) in their premises or nearby areas worldwide, creating a green wave. They take photographs make a short write up of tree planting story and upload on CBD’s Green Wave website. An interactive map on the website will “go live” at 8:20 p.m local time, creating a second wave. Each planting activity can be located on the world map with the name of the School/Youth group. Thus Green Wave brings the student and youth community together on the International network also putting them on the  UNEP’s Planet Billion Tree Campaign. The theme for celebrations this year is Mainstreaming Biodiversity; Sustaining People and their Livelihoods.
