The Green Miles Project

Canada World Youth’s (CWY) Green Miles Project is a carbon responsibility initiative where youth volunteers learn about the ecological footprint of their exchange program and then plant trees, helping to restore ecosystems and working to sequester the equivalent amount of CO2 emitted by their international transportation.


Youth volunteers and community members engaged in our Youth Leaders in Action program have planted trees in numerous locations across Canada, as well as in several of our international partner countries. During the 2011-2012 program year, 2,055 trees were planted by the groups, both in Canada and overseas.

The types of trees that were planted were all native species to the local area and included: coconut, papaya and mango trees in Mozambique; white spruce, black spruce and maple in Quebec; and Eastern hemlock and maple in Prince Edward Island.
