Mother’s Forest Project for Keeping the Earth Green

Planting 438 saplings in the U.S., U.K., Thailand, Taiwan, Peru, and Mexico

Desertification has become a main global issue as global warming gets worse. The United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification [UNCCD] reported in 2015 that 2.1 billion people in 160 countries are suffering from desertification and 300 million among them are climate refugees and predicted that the two thirds of the world population will experience water scarcity in 2025. It makes agreements with many governments and conducts campaigns to make deserts green.

ASEZ WAO is planting seven billion trees under the Mother’s Forest project. Trees hold soil and water with their roots, so if deserts could be made green with trees, they could become home for living creatures.

During November and December, ASEZ WAO’s regular volunteer months in 2020, around 300 members in six countries planted 438 trees in seven places. The members in Thailand, Peru, and Mexico planted saplings in a wetland, an ecological park, and a public park, and the members in the U.K. planted trees along Hook Road in Surrey, England, to beautify the scenery on Nov. 29. The members in Taiwan and the U.S. planted saplings at a public park and near the city hall on Dec. 6.

The members in New Zealand visited the Auckland Town Hall and made a presentation on ASEZ WAO’s activities and the Mother’s Forest project. They signed an MOU with the town and agreed to plant trees and conduct a cleanup at a park in southern Auckland every year.
