Social movements to protect the environment have been increasing in the past years. On September 20th, 2019, a group of citizens gathered at Parque Juárez to be part of a climate strike, young people were there and one of them invited us to protect the trees that the government had decided to remove from Guadalupe Avenue. She was Victoria Delgado. The following day, on September 21st, we went to support Victoria in Guadalupe Avenue. This was the origin of 41 Trees to Save the Planet, that became an organization to work in favor of trees through educational projects. Please join us to hear about their experience.

Los movimientos sociales a favor del medio ambiente han crecido en años recientes. El 20 de septiembre de 2019, un grupo de ciudadanas y ciudadanos se reunió en el Parque Juárez para realizar una huelga climática, gente joven llegó al evento y una de ellas era Victoria Delgado, quien nos invitó a proteger los árboles de la Avenida Guadalupe. El 21 de septiembre, nos reunimos en ese lugar en apoyo a Victoria y en defensa de los árboles, este es el origen de 41 Árboles para Salvar El Planeta, que se convirtió en una organización que utiliza herramientas educativas para beneficio de los árboles. Les invitamos a una plática con las mujeres de esta organización para escuchar su experiencia.
