Planting seven million trees across 8,000 km land, through the 11 countries of the arid Sahel region in Africa is the aim at the heart of an initiative to combat desertification and ward off drought, famine, conflict, and migration.

That’s the goal of the “Laudato Tree” initiative Pope Francis upheld during his 10 May Regina Coeli address, thanking the young people working to make it happen, and encouraging all to engage in the “Laudato Sì” Anniversary Year that runs until 24 May 2021.
