We are never too young to teach a lesson nor too old to learn one…
Have you heard about Felix Finkbeiner?
He is a 13 year old German boy and the founder of “Plant for the planet”, an organization that encourages children around the world to take care of the planet and plant trees. They have already planted three million trees world wide!
Amazing, isn’t it?
Their slogan is: “Stop talking, start planting” and they are right, we adults talk too much and do very little… and it’s time to start doing more. Felix’s dream is for children all over the world to unite and fight the climate change – he plans on planting over 131.000.000 trees!
This is the main lesson he has taught us today, but some of the teachers from ABA English also want to share their thoughts, and here is what each one of them has to say:
Ella: “Let’s dream of a sustainable world like this boy.”
Sarah: “It’s inspiring to see people working hard for something they believe in.”
Maria: “Always dream big regardless of your age.”
And I, Victoria, would say: “We need more young people like him” and, of course, “His mum must be feeling very proud.”
If you found Felix as inspiring as we did, why don’t you watch this video where Felix gives an interview at the Opening of the International Year of Forests?
What do you think of Plant For the Planet? Would you plant a tree for a better future? Let us know what you think so we can all practice English together!
