PKN Barcelona Planting Trees

PechaKucha Night in Barcelona recently teamed up for a new eco project with Tree-Nation in which they are planting one tree for each of its presenters. PKN Barcelona organizer Petz Scholtus explains: Pecha Kucha Barcelona is planting trees: it’s fun, and the trees fight poverty, desertification, deforestation, and climate change. For Vol. 5, we partnered up with Tree-Nation, and from now on every speaker will be given a tree that is planted in the growing heart-shaped forest in the Nigerian desert. The trees are virtually planted over the internet, where you can see it grow, water it, add photos, and connect to other trees and their people while a real tree grows in Tree-Nation’s plantation. Here is a direct link to Pecha Kucha Barcelona’s forest. Check out and join Tree-Nation, the biggest free Internet social network with the objective of planting trees.
