Sometimes, doing nothing is the best solution.
Ever since the foundation of our company, we have been donating 10% of our January revenue to initiatives in which people commit themselves to do some good and want to make a change for the better. This year, everything is different: We want absolutely nothing to happen. For this, we will be leasing a piece of woodland for fifty years and the owner will in return commit to leaving the forest in peace and not removing any wood from it.
This does not mean that the forest is simply left to its own devices – the pros at Wohlleben’s Forest Academy make sure that the leased woodland can regenerate, grow and thrive naturally. After all, only 0.18% of the German forest area consists of beech forests that are at least 180 years old – Germany used to be full of beeches.
Our forest conservation project aims towards increasing that number. After all, forests that are allowed to grow naturally are one of the most important defences against climate change.
As soon as we know how much Schleicher Sprachservice’s 2022 donation will be, we will give all the details – where the plot of forest is, how big it is, and what it looks like.
