Who we are

Executive board members

WeNeedTrees.net is a non-profit Swiss association based in Geneva, Switzerland, that was founded by Mohammad Tajeran in 2014. Mr. Tajeran has been traveling the world on bicycle since December 2006, and as of September 2018, has logged over 74,000 kilometers, while promoting love and respect for nature and emphasizing the importance of a healthy and sustainable environment for the well-being of mankind. He does this by visiting schools, speaking and dialoguing with students, bringing out the tree as a universal symbol of life and giving. As of September 2018, Mr. Tajeran has visited 235 schools in 53 countries and, with the help of students and individuals, has planted 2800 trees. More can be seen about Mr. Tajeran and his adventures at his website, www.weneedtrees.com or on Facebook. Inspired by his travels and warm, welcoming receptions, he decided in 2014 to start a non-profit association to empower like-minded individuals to join him in promoting and continuing his work at the local levels. This cartoon character is called Adam !! Adam is an inspired character who loves trees and his presence in our workshop can help the facilators (facilitators)to interact with children simply and sincerely. Adam also has a great presence in our product.
