GEN Z FOR THE TREES

Fighting toward net zero deforestation by 2030.

We are Generation Z.

Deforestation ends with us.

Why Join Us

As individuals, we might feel powerless, but as a group, we have the power to alter the course of history. Gen Z for the Trees is harnessing the passion, talent, and efforts of our generation around the world to protect rainforests.

Generation Z makes up 40% of consumers both in the USA and globally. By 2026, we will be over 40% of the workforce. Our influence is large and growing, as is our ability to push for lasting change. There are so many reasons to have hope, and by focusing on the actions that need the most attention, we can create a more sustainable future.
