Mexico is now host to a "European Union Forest" of 1500 trees thanks to a flurry of virtual planting by Mexican citizens from 3 cities in June. Raising awareness about climate change and what each and every one of us – around the world – can do to combat it, the EU Delegation to Mexico invited people to plant a virtual tree, score a goal for climate change or cycle to recharge their mobile phones.
On 9 September, the Delegation made good on the virtual pledges and planted 1500 trees with the help of volunteers.
