In 2016, Breathe Earth Collective was invited to contribute to the “Umweltzirkus” festival in Graz, addresing the tackling of urban heat islands.
The project “crowd foresting” activated and sensitized the public by giving away more than 700 seedlings to citizens. Participants were asked to plant their choosen trees and submit “tree selfies” from the new “tree home”. Everybody was invited to become an active agent in challenging climate change and the amount of city trees in Graz grew by more than 700 new trees within one weekend!
