Make a Forest for the International Year of Forests
Make a Forest is endorsed by the United Nations 2011 International Year of Forests. It is an open invitation to cultural institutions all over the world to create tan artificial 3D tree in their local city with local artists, and while doing so, connect to local forestry challenges.
All these tree-making activities can be followed on this shared platform. In this way local projects will be connected to a larger movement creating together an international forest. Artist Christien Meindertsma made the first tree that you see in the photo.
