Children deserve a carefree future. As an educational organisation, we contribute towards giving children the education they deserve. However, we recognise that by limiting ourselves just to education, we’re not there yet. A big issue at stake is whether the next generation will be able to live on our world as carefree in the future as we have always done. Action needs to be taken against climate change and that is why Prowise starts off by compensating CO2 emissions by planting trees and contributes to training children to become Climate Justice ambassadors.
By planting trees, we help offset CO2 emissions. One tree absorbs about 20kg of CO2 in one year. This equates to half a year of active use of the touch screen. And the tree will last for years to come.
Collaboration with Plant-for-the-Planet
The planting of trees is done in cooperation with our partner, Plant-for-the-Planet, as is the organisation of the academies. Plant for the Planet is a global movement with an ambitious goal: fighting the climate crisis by planting trees all over the world. They want to secure the future of children all over the world. Besides planting trees, academies are an important part of the movement. This is where children make other children enthusiastic about climate issues.
Only the beginning
This action is just a start. In addition to this initiative, we are busy starting up and exploring different ways in which we can make our social contribution. These include using more recycled materials, further reducing waste production, improving the production process and looking at ways in which we can make our products even more sustainable in use.
