Accelerating the Renewal of People and Planet with ORIT
ORIT, a major investment force in renewable energy innovations across Europe and the UK, is partnering with us to create two SUGi Pocket Forests in the United Kingdom and France.
This collaboration opens a visible, community-centered window into ORIT’s ongoing commitment to accelerate sustainable practices, projects and possibilities. As the hub for The Rewilding Generation, SUGi couldn’t be more pleased to support these pioneers of the Green Revolution.
Castle Green Forest II — Dagenham, London
An urban forest to mitigate pollution and bring biodiversity.
The forest will act directly on its local environment. This area is heavily polluted and an urban biodiversity desert. The denseness of the Miyawaki method allows maximum potential Co2 drawdown and pollution mitigation. The trees chosen will also be the ones that have evolved to live and even thrive in the urban environment.
Rion Des Landes College — Rion Des Landes, France
Cultivating greenery and tranquility for children in a treeless environment.
This college in Rion des Landes has many outdoor spaces but a real lack of trees. The entrance courtyard is exposed to full sun, and during the summer months the students have very few places to shelter during their break time nor do they have access to any significant greenery.
Using the Miyawaki method, we will plant 29 native species with the children, their teachers and families. The aim is to share environmental values and the skills of creating a forest. The college students will also be trained to maintain and monitor the forest, so it will make a contribution not simply their wellbeing but also their studies.
The Rion Des Landes College project will have a direct impact on the daily lives of the students, and we hope it will be a source of joy for the entire school community.
