Inspiring Young Tree Champions
The Tree Council and M&G plc have teamed up to respond to the climate and biodiversity crisis, by inspiring teachers and pupils to unlock the power of trees, through a new, national Young Tree Champions programme. Teachers and pupils will have the opportunity to connect with each other and nature, learn new skills and take action in their communities to speak up and be a #ForceForNature.
