What is it? A legacy of the 2022 Lambeth Conference with the aim to increase Anglican tree growing and landscape protection around the world and deepen care for creation within the life of the church.

This is a global act of hope with a wide range of creation care activities depending on local needs and expressions. Churches might choose to take up a project that involves: 

Protection – advocating and taking action to stop deforestation or prevent the destruction of other habitats.  

Restoration – restoring a piece of waste land or other degraded environment.   

Creation – starting a forest initiative on church land or support a project in the wider community. 

Growing – protection and restoration should be considered ahead of establishing something new. Where something new is set up, the emphasis should be on growing, not just planting. It is about growing the right kind of tree in the right place.
Multiplying – helping others get involved. Churches or diocese can be a ‘multiplier’ by setting up a tree or plant nursery to enable wider participation in afforestation.
