Story

We believe in the power of small actions

For the first time, the UK will host the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow on 9 – 20 November 2020. The climate talks will bring together over 30,000 delegates including heads of state, climate experts and campaigners to agree coordinated action to tackle climate change, the decisions made at COP26 will have a fundamental impact on whether we prevent a future environmental disaster or not. The actions we take as individuals now will determine our children's futures.

In the lead up to COP26, we aim to empower children to improve their environment through small direct actions. Children will take part in transforming dedicated sites (called The Lost Woods) into vibrant spaces by providing trees that they have grown from seed in their classrooms. The Lost Woods will promote biodiversity, act to lock carbon away, improve air quality and be social spaces that bring people together. Children will be taught about the importance of natural solutions in tackling climate change (such as reforestation) through a series of dedicated events combined with tree growing. During COP26 in November we will celebrate their work and the creation of The Lost Woods.

Your money will be used to buy oak seeds & the associated materials/support for us to deliver this project to every primary school in Glasgow. There are over 40,000 children in the primary schools in Glasgow. At a cost of approximately 15p per child, we believe the benefits to the pupils and the resulting environmental improvements are endless.

Your Donation could fund the following :

£45 = enough tree seeds for 1 school ( 300 trees )

£225 = enough tree seeds for 5 schools (1,500 trees )

£450 = enough tree seeds for 10 schools (3,000 trees)

£630 = enough tree seeds for 14 schools (4,200 trees)

£6,000 = enough tree seeds for all the primary school children in Glasgow = (50,000 trees)

We aim to inspire and provide support for other small community groups to create 'Lost Woods' throughout the country. This is a opportunity for Glasgow to provide a legacy and kickstart an important movement through simple direct action. However time is running out, we urgently need your support in the coming weeks in order not to miss the seed planting season and to make this project possible. We need your help.

    Delighted to report that we delivered all our free tree packs and resources to schools before they closed on Friday 20th; sending out close to 50,000 acorns to all the Glasgow primary school pupils in 151 schools across the City. All but 15 schools participated and we have adopted these acorns while schools are closed and planted them at a farm in Lesmahagow. Pupils at the rest of the schools are looking after their seedlings at home or with a teacher. You can also see the project's progress from our Twitter feed. @The_Lost_Woods_

    Thank you for all your wonderful donations and helping our project to grow. We are halfway there! We will soon be delivering to all the primary schools in Glasgow and each child will receive their own special acorn. Each school will also receive a signed copy of The Promise, by Nicola Davies, compost and biodegradable cups to help grow their acorns into beautiful oaks. Please let all your friends and family know so that they can be part of The Lost Woods and help us reach our target. Thank you From all the Team @The Lost Woods
