Trees for Climate Action is a project that brings people together who wouldn't normally cross paths in their everyday lives through tree related activities. This exciting initiative is led by Trees for Cities and supported by several of our fantastic partners.
Up to 20,000 people aged under 30 in Bradford and Glasgow will have the chance to learn from experienced professionals working in the environmental sector and get involved in tree planting, training and volunteering so that they can learn vital skills to tackle the climate crisis.
Trees for Climate Action launched in October 2022 and will run for three years until September 2025 across the Bradford and Glasgow city regions.
young people in Bradford and Glasgow will have the opportunity to get involved with tree related activities!

BECOME A TUTOR
As part of the project, our partners The Field Studies Council are looking to train and accredit 12 Tree Tutors in Bradford and Glasgow, helping them to build the skills and personal confidence to deliver training courses themselves, and helping to address the shortage of tree professionals.
They will be running up to 4 in-person courses in Bradford and Glasgow and 1 online per year, up until 2025. There is an opportunity to help develop their course content bespoke to your city, as well as deliver the courses. This is a paid opportunity that will also see you invested in personally as you join the national Field Studies Council tutor network.
Trees for Climate Action is a project led by Trees for Cities in partnership with the Field Studies Council and The National Lottery Community Fund, which has generously awarded money raised by National Lottery players to Trees for Cities through its Bringing People Together programme. The project will build on the legacy of The Queen’s Green Canopy, which engaged communities to plant thousands of trees for Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in areas of greatest need throughout the UK.
