Greenpop, Cape Town


It all started with a simple goal: to plant 1000 trees in 1 month in under-greened townships of Cape Town. In 2010, a group of 10 friends fundraised, researched appropriate planting locations, gathered like-minded individuals and the campaign came together. After the final tree had been planted, they went back to their day jobs but people were calling asking to volunteer and the Greenpop organisation was born. Today, they plant trees through urban greening and reforestation projects, spread environmental awareness, and activate people through green festivals and workshops across Southern Africa.
