People Who Make a Difference: Felix Finkbeiner

When he was nine, Felix Finkbeiner had an idea: If children could plant 1 million trees in every country on earth, they could offset carbon emissions all on their own. He founded Plant-for-the-Planet, an organization working to replant trees and encourage young people around the world to stand up for their future.

Words of Inspiration

“When we children come together, we can really make a difference. One mosquito cannot do anything against a rhinoceros, but a thousand mosquitoes can make a rhinoceros to change its direction. When the kids unite and plant trees all over the world, then we act as global citizens to change the world.” —Felix Finkbeiner
