Help our forest grow! If every student has at least 9 seedlings planted on their behalf, we will meet or exceed our carbon-zero goal for the 2022-2023 school year.
Last year, the Sunnybrook community planted 1,197 seedlings into our Smart Forest and beat our goal by 180%!
Our school is taking bold action in the face of climate change. By helping us grow a School Smart Forest, you are making a positive impact that will be felt for generations to come.
Canada's Forest Trust (CFT) is building millions of acres of Smart Forests across Canada. A Forever Forest Guarantee ensures that every forest built by CFT undergoes expert management, reporting, monitoring, and maintenance.
Smart Forests do more than meets the eye, they:
- Sequester carbon
- Develop healthy and biodiverse ecosystems
- Provide scholarships and internships for Canada's youth
- Connect Indigenous & non-Indigenous youth
- Create employment
- Foster multi-generational environmental stewardship
- Ease climate anxiety
- Report on impact
The climate crisis cannot be solved alone - schools across Canada are collaborating to grow a greener future. As schools work towards their carbon-zero climate goals, seedlings are accumulated to build forests from coast to coast to coast.
