An Apology to Future Generations: Wildlife Works and Stand for Trees Partner with Prince EA

It is our sincere pleasure to announce that Prince Ea, an American rapper and spoken word artist, has partnered with Stand for Trees on a new video that was released this morning.

Prince Ea’s work touches on social, political and educational topics and has inspired millions of people around the world to think and act on positive collective evolution. Now, Prince Ea is urging his fans to take action on the most pressing issue of our time – climate change. His latest video, “Dear Future Generations: Sorry” is a tribute to the future generations to whom we leave our planet and a reminder that how we treat our earth today matters.

Last month, Prince Ea traveled to Kenya and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to visit Wildlife Works’ pioneering REDD+ projects that demonstrate a successful way to stop deforestation by rewarding forest communities who conserve their forests, inspiring him to write this piece.

Founded by Code REDD, Stand for Trees is a first-of-its-kind consumer campaign that uses the power of social media and crowdfunding to enable everyone to take real and effective action to reduce deforestation and curb climate change. Each time we purchase a Stand for Trees Certificate, we do a tonne of good because each Certificate prevents one metric tonne of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere, all while preserving threatened forests, protecting wildlife, and empowering communities.

To help spread this message, we need YOUR help. Please help us share this video via social media to ensure support for the REDD+ mechanism continues to grow and thrive.As we approach the world’s twenty-first year of international climate change negotiations, it has never been more critical for citizens to begin demanding and building climate action. That is exactly why Prince Ea has teamed up with Stand For Trees to create an unprecedented reflection on the consequences of our climate inaction, and an inspired vision of collective change.

Trees stand for us, it’s time to stand for trees!
