Historic Reforestation in Renca as Part of Climate Movement

SANTIAGO – Volunteers joined together to plant 15,000 trees on Renca Hill, Santiago, on Dec. 6. The activity was part of the environmental awareness initiative #6D, which created a global chain of action against climate change. Talking about the event, Chile’s National Forest Corporation Executive Director said, “Trees are the best way to mitigate the effects of global change.”

Approximately 5,000 volunteers signed up to work on a reforestation initiative for Renca Hill: planting 15,000 native trees in one day. The event set a record as the biggest single-day reforestation in Chile’s history.

The initiative was organized by the Renca Municipality, Chilean reforestation organization Cultiva, and Swiss collaborative organization Avina. Both corporations organized the event as part of the #6D initiative: an invitation to people worldwide to take specific action against climate change on Dec. 6.
