JUST ONE Tree recognises Planet Hero Schools

JUST ONE Tree has recognised over 80 schools as Planet Hero Schools for having taken part over three years in the annual JUST ONE Tree Day for schools to help tackle the dual crises of climate change and biodiversity loss. 

West Lodge Primary School

This recognition is for their ongoing commitment to protecting the environment through JUST ONE Tree Day and, along with all the other 650 plus schools taking part, have helped to plant over 330,000 trees in countries close to the equator where they can have the biggest impact on global warming.  

The Planet Hero Schools have been presented with their Planet Hero School certificate and logo.

JUST ONE Tree Day is a fun and educational day bringing free education about the environment into schools, helping to create planet-conscious thinkers of the future whilst tackling climate change. 

The next international JUST ONE Tree Day is on 18th October 2024. The highly popular event brings together hundreds of schools across the world and encourages children to bring in £1 to plant a tree and help reforest the planet – a tree is planted for every £1 raised. The day highlights to children and young people how their individual actions can make a difference in the fight against climate change and the biodiversity crises.

For schools wanting to become more sustainable, they can start their journey towards becoming a Planet Hero School by signing up to this year’s JUST ONE Tree Day.
