Make FIFA adopt Trees For Goals

Dear Mr Infantino,

Twenty-seven soccer fields worth of trees are cut down every minute! Global deforestation has major negative effects on the climate and environment.

Seventeen-year-old Lesein Mutunkei from Nairobi created the Trees For Goals project. The framework of Trees For Goals is based on getting schools and soccer clubs committed to planting 11 trees for every goal scored in practices and games alike. Each tree represents the number of team members on the field.

Mr Infantino you have the power to utilize the power of soccer to highlight global deforestation by adapting Trees For Goals at the major world tournaments!

Make it happen!

Best regards
