#ChallengeTony: Time To Catch Your Breath

We are now a few months into Tony’s challenge of setting up 10 Tentsile Experience Camps (TECs) around the world, and it seems like a timely pause to recap on where we are. Things have been busy, and ideas for the future continue to look rather exciting!

#BecomeOneOfTheMillion: International Day of Forests!

So where are we three months into this campaign? Well, as one might hope, there is lots of good news!  We continue to grow the three projects we support in Africa, closely working with WeForest and The Eden Projects, planting just over 50,000 trees to date. For this small team of tree-hopers, this is definitely something we are proud of!

#EchoChamberDisruption

Last year we all became aware of the “Echo Chamber” effect, when we find ourselves presented on social media only with news and posts that closely align with our existing views and beliefs - thus reinforcing them. This year, we are going to smash that Echo Chamber!!! Join us, for #EchoChamberDisruption.

#BecomeOneOfTheMillion - Who To Pick To Plant?

So it’s one thing saying we want to plant trees; it’s quite another actually doing it. Turns out, repopulating the planet with trees is not as straight forward as one initially thinks – even for people in the tree-loving business!

A New Year’s Resolution: Tentsile aims for 1 MILLION people in trees!

We’re setting ourselves a new challenge, a Tentsile Challenge: From January 2017, we will aim to get 1 MILLION people camping in trees within the next 5 years. That’s right, 1 million people, 5 years. Who said ambition was for the faint-hearted?...
