Forest Goodwill

Invest into future and better environment, into nature and education – invest into Forest Goodwill.

Forest Goodwill is a project that has been created with an intention to support the participation of young Estonians in Up with People program. How does that work? In co-operation with RMK (State Forest Management Centre) we are planting a Forest Goodwill near Tallinn. RMK will provide the land, the tree plants and maintenance of the forest.

You all can participate in this project by investing into the forest by buying trees. Why is that a worthwhile investment? Forest is something that we can call our life. Forest provides us with clean air, food, heating, roof over our head, energy, emotions and financial prosperity. We have to take responsibility and stand up for sustainable living environment in order to preserve the quality of life on this planet. If, while investing into green living, we can also help young people get educated in Up with People program, it is a win-win situation in every way.

Forest Goodwill initiative was literally “planted” for the first time during the UWP European Alumni Meeting in Tallinn in May, 2014 when every participant planted a tiny tree seed. All those trees will be planted into the Forest Goodwill when they have grown to be strong enough.

Forest is a real thing. Something that you can touch and it is good for your soul. When investing into a Forest Goodwill, you are actually able to visit this forest and physically see what you have invested into.

Forest is also something that is close to heart for the Estonians, being the biggest natural resource that we have. Estonia is one of the most forest-rich countries in the world – approximately half of our land area or 2.2 million hectares are covered with forest. Another roughly 40% of Estonian forests belong to the Estonian state. These forests are maintained, grown and managed by the State Forest Management Centre (RMK).
