2022 1t.org US Summit Agenda and Resources


The 1t.org US Chapter Summit was an extraordinary opportunity to bring together tree champions that are leading the way in the United States on the mission to conserverestore and grow 1 trillion trees by 2030.

More than 140 attendees from the trillion trees community joined the Summit in Washington, DC to discuss fresh ideas and learn more from one another. We had corporate and nonprofit influencers present their vision for scaling public and private-sector ambition, federal and state government leaders make bold statements on climate, and community representatives discuss the intersectional needs of urban forestry. Here are a few exciting highlights from the event:

  • The morning started with Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack breaking news on a Secretarial order at the 1t.org US Summit. View his announcement here.
  • Two celebratory pledge announcements: Arbor Day Foundation shared an ambitious new goal of 500 million trees in 5 years, and Aspiration increased their pledge from 100,000,001 to 1,000,000,000 trees!
  • Youth leaders Zoe Bredesen, Gold Award Girl Scout, and Kevin Patel, Founder and Executive Director of OneUpAction, inspired us with messages of climate hope and accountability to the climate movement.
