In June 2022, the first-ever 1t.org US Chapter Summit took place in Washington, DC. The Summit brought together a diverse, multi-stakeholder community for a dynamic, in-person event. Attendees had the opportunity to collaborate with Chapter members from various fields and disciplines and gain key insights from high-level policymakers and thought leaders. FCCP team members Lauren Cooper and Evan Beresford attended the event as facilitators to learn from, meet, and interact with leaders from public, private, and non-profit sectors to advance the shared dialogue on forests as a natural climate solution.

After the Summit concluded, the FCCP collaborated with 1t.org US to synthesize summit outcomes. The report highlights nine key strategies to increase action and raise ambition toward meeting the 1t.org US goal. The mission of 1t.org is to connect, empower, and serve a global movement to conserve, restore, and grow one trillion trees by 2030. The nine key strategies can be found below:
