Imagine that you could associate sport with environmental protection. With Move Sports you can. Trees and shrubs have been placed on your sports field for many reasons. They bring a lot of value in terms of amenities and shade to a sports facility. However, the presence of trees, in the world, is even more important. Trees are the mainstays of the world, both for humans and the environment.
Why is it important to plant trees?
Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat for over 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity. Forests absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines.
Trees play an important role in the hydrological cycle, trapping water at their roots and releasing it into the atmosphere.
So what do you achieve by planting trees?
- You get to create a healthier climate
- You give back to the environment
- You’ll be helping reforestation efforts.
- You’ll be protecting biodiversity
Planting trees counts as a sport
Planting trees is very physically demanding. So, check if you have any muscle imbalances or mobility problems that might need to be addressed before you come out for the planting.
Connect your teams across the world by planting trees
A teambuilding planting trees is a great cause and can have an amazing impact:
- Develops a collective mindset
- Makes employees aware of environmental issues
- Give meaning to employees’ actions
- Improve relationships with stakeholders
Teambuilding is good. But teambuilding that engages your employees and leaves a legacy for them, your company, and your community is even better.
Invite your employees, their families, and your stakeholders to plant trees together with a forester. For many, that is an answer to the quest for meaning in work!
Move Sports can help you create a volunteer event for employees and add the benefits of being a good cause to the sports aspect. The number of trees for your event will be based on your company budget and the number of employee volunteers participating.
