Hundreds of Volunteers

Year-round Crew

Couldn’t live without: Colours
Chosen Superpower: Healing powers
Why volunteer with Activate? Activate enabled me to fulfil a dream: to be the change I wanted to see in this world. One of our duties to the Earth is to plant trees, and I volunteer for Activate to make it happen and offer that gift to others.
Best part of Activate? To be in the middle of the field, look ahead, see nothing as far as the horizon, but to know that after an Activate Festival, it will be bush. And then, what is magic is to hear the drums… to the music plays and to turn around, and see dozens of other tree planters, of all ages and of all walks of life, putting thousands seedlings in the ground. Nothing beats that feeling of communion with nature and fellow humans.
