Greens Pleased To See Plans Growing

LIVERPOOL Green Party are pleased to see their 1 Tree Per Child proposals being implemented across schools in the City. The initiative, which Liverpool is the 2nd City to adopt, encourages children to become part of their community by planting trees in parks and green spaces across the City. The proposals were initially put forward by Liverpool Green Party Councillor Anna Key, having worked with colleague Councillor Lawrence Brown on researching the initiative's success in Bristol.

Leader of Liverpool Green Party, Councillor Tom Crone commented on his colleagues success in getting the Labour led Council to agree to, adopt, and implement the scheme. "Our Green councillors have worked hard on getting this scheme taken up by the Council. But their tenacity, and belief in the project as a benefit for our children, and wider Liverpool communities eventually paid off. For the last year we have been working on this and drumming up support. 1 of the earliest proponents of the scheme was the wonderful St. Vincents in West Derby; Cllr Brown recently helped out with a related seed planting event at the school."

The 1 Tree Per Child scheme, which was founded by film star Olivia Newton John and has TV's Kevin McCloud as an ambassador, aims to connect young people with the natural environment, providing benefits such as increased environmental awareness, empowering children to make a difference and improved mental health.

Councillor Tom Crone, who is busy preparing to launch his Metro Mayor manifesto commented further saying:- "I'm so proud of our councillors for pushing this scheme through the Council using powerful, impassioned arguments. I am looking forward to working closely with the schools and other organisations who will put this brilliant idea into practice."

The scheme comes from one of many initiatives that Green Councillors have steered through the Council in the past year and Councillor Crone is keen for more successes in future:- "We will continue to challenge the Council to introduce Greener policies and practices, 1 Tree Per Child is a great example of this."
