“Give a Hand to the Forest” is a sustainability education program designed to raise young people’s awareness about forestry protection and environmental conservation, a project which was awarded the APCE’s Best Social Responsibility Communication Campaign.

In 2016, this program mobilized a total of 2,145 children from all over Portugal, including workshops at nurseries and primary schools and the donation of more than 4,000 plants to local communities. The event celebrates World Forests Day and Environment Day and is organized in partnership with local authorities.
