Trees for Peace – Planting For A Sustainable and Peaceful Future

Trees for Peace is more than a tree-planting campaign. It combines concrete climate action with education for sustainable lifestyles, while fostering a community of young Europeans, dedicated to make a difference. From Lisbon to Munich to Copenhagen – across ten European countries our youth volunteers meet to plant together. Each Trees for Peace activity is carried out by young people (15 – 30) and is combined with workshops on sustainable living. We believe that planting trees is a powerful way to bring people together, experience community and strengthen a sense of global responsibility and leadership in young people. It can inspire youth from all backgrounds to be active citizens, joining together for a more sustainable, and peaceful future. And because we can achieve more together, AYUDH Europe is joining forces with the initiative Plant for the Planet, contributing to the goal of planting 1 Trillion Trees globally. 

 For this, we need your support.

About the Campaign

AYUDH has believed and invested in youth empowerment since its foundation, and our tree planting campaign makes no exception. At AYUDH we believe that supporting youth to plant trees will allow them to learn valuable teachings such as the positive impact they can cause by contributing to their communities, how to realise – with their own hands – the improvements they want to see in society and how they can set an example to their communities.

In this way, Trees for Peace is contributing to the UN Sustainable Development Goal 4.7:


“by 2030 ensure all learners acquire knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, including among others through education for sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship, and appreciation of cultural diversity and of culture’s contribution to sustainable development” (Source: )


Our campaign mainly focuses on planting native European forest trees and fruit trees which are either native to the European continent or naturalised.

The youth are being guided in choosing species of trees which are native or cultivated in their geographical area, ensuring that the plants planted can survive and prosper in these soil and weather conditions.
