Think Global, Act Local.
DeforestACTION is a global movement of youth and schools taking action to stop deforestation and create a permanent habitat for orangutans and other species that depend on forest ecosystems. Through collaborative learning and action related to deforestation and environmental sustainability, students will become DeforestACTION agents who are shaping a more sustainable world.

TiG will be kicking off a 2-month campaign in March, starting with a webinar to invite classrooms across the world to develop and launch campaigns that raise awareness of the detrimental effects of deforestation. Classrooms will then undertake their environmental campaigns and have the opportunity to partner with another classroom to share ideas, brainstorm, and compare local ecosystems as they develop their deforestaction projects.
As a part of Earth Day celebrations on April 22, participating schools will come together, through video conference technology, to showcase their amazing work.
