15 million trees

Why plant trees in Siberia?

This region of the northern hemisphere is home to immense natural ressources -  a quarter of the world's timber reserves - the whole natural organisation of which is changing. The flora, fauna and man are directly under threat. The disappearance of the Taïga region in Siberia is catastrophic for the planet.

There is an urgent need to recreate the wells of carbon and to take meaningful action to help the Taïga region regenerate itself.

The forest is of incalculable value.

Every action, every effort, is essential because the challenge is monumental.

Siberian expertise

Russian scientists have historically been experts in the natural ecosystems of the northern hemisphere.

Over the last few years, agreements have been reach between Russians and French in order to preserve rare seeds of the agricultural food industry notably with the Institute Vavilov of Saint Petersburg.

Our project focuses on the biodiversity of the trees and the forests.

Reorganise the planting of damaged species, by selecting seeds and giving the best possible chance for young saplings to become mature trees; these are the important actions needed in the fight against global warming.

The growing season is short, during a few months of the year once the snow has melted.

This immense region is characterised by the permafrost.  The most prestigious universities in Russia are collaborating in this project. We have sought advice from engineers in:

  • Tomsk,
  • Novosibirsk,
  • Moscow
  • and St Petersburg 

in order to guarantee the success of our project.

A Franco-Russian collaboration

With the support of Russia's most important universities and the actions of small and medium-sized businesses, we are organising the re-plantation 15 million trees from "green-houses" directly to the forest .

It's the future of the planet which is at stake.

The French are the leading foreign employers in Russia.

Most of our largest companies are present in Russia.

  • Make people understand the significance of this economic collaboration
  • orientate this exchange towards a more ecological collaboration
  • put humanity back at the centre of our concerns

are part of our primary objectives. 

The sporting challenge is the added bonus of our project.

  • 7,750 mile run
  • 15 million strides
  • from one side of the continent to the other.

Of course it's possible!!!.
