2015 Milestones: November

The Queen's Commonwealth Canopy

ONE FIFTH OF THE WORLD’S FORESTS ARE IN COMMONWEALTH COUNTRIES.

November saw the launch of a new initiative to protect forest right across the 153 nations that make up the Commonwealth. The Queens Commonwealth Canopy has Cool Earth’s model of community-led conservation at its heart. Announced by the Queen herself, it’s an exciting initiative that we’re proud to be leading alongside the Royal Commonwealth Society and the Commonwealth Forestry Association.

Commonwealth citizens are leading the world in efforts to protect the forest – forest that their communities and the planet as a whole depend on.

The Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy will show that, irrespective of geography, economy, culture or tenure, solutions exist to the threats facing these most critical of ecosystems.
