At 9 years old Felix Finkbeiner (23) developed the idea that children
could promote climate justice by planting a million trees in every country. This
led to the Trillion Tree Campaign. So far, more than 91,000 youth in 75
countries joined Plant-for-the-Planet and fight for their future as Climate
Justice Ambassadors. A self-developed app helps the children and youth to
plant trees through donations. In 2018, Felix received the Federal Cross of
Merit for his commitment. Today, Felix is a Ph.D. candidate at ETH Zurich
studying the potential of forest restoration in addressing the climate crisis."
