As we come to the end of 2020 what a strange year it has been. With Covid-19 taking centre stage it seems like life has been on hold for so long. As we look forward to a New Year we hope for better times and that the vaccines currently being trialled will be a way out.
What better way of showing hope for the future than tree planting...? We are again supporting long established charity 'Trees for Life' in their project of rewilding Scotland and the fact that several of our volunteers are involved in organisation/tree planting
Plant the Gift of Life and let's get 125 trees in the ground!
For people who love nature and the outdoors... a couple of trees in Scotland to raise the spirits... :) Season's Greetings!

Ever since its foundation, promoting sustainable development of both the environment and society has been at the heart of the Naturefriends movement. Over the last 125 years, Naturefriends around the world have implemented thousands of activities to champion this wide variety of causes: fighting for rights of way, developing environmentally and socially sustainable tourism and leisure-time offers, and promoting protection of the environment and nature, climate justice and international solidarity.
The international campaign “125 activities for sustainable development” aims to give an overview of the diversity of Naturefriends activities that have contributed to sustainable development or continue to do so. In addition to that, the anniversary congress of Naturefriends International, which is held on 13 June 2020 in Vienna, will adopt a list of demands with the aim of pointing out Naturefriends’ commitment to a good future for all people.
The individual activities will be presented with the hashtag #Naturefriends125activities on Facebook and Instagram during the year 2020:
