Greening your Future is a forest restoration and climate change mitigation initiative, with a focus on community upliftment. Trees grown by Wildlands 'tree-preneurs' are planted by green teams or community landowners to reforest degraded land. This helps restore ecosystems, bringing back the naturally- occurring biodiversity, and ecosystem services such as carbon sequestration, as well as supplementing livelihoods for both the growers and the planters of the trees. A growing forest of trees, using the natural process of photosynthesis, absorbs carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, 'sinking' the carbon. Wildlands is applying the internationally-recognised Climate, Community and Biodiversity design standard to guide the development and rollout of these projects.
