Tree Mountain by Agnes Denes: Art as a Form of Climate Action.

In 1992, artist Agnes Denes launched Tree Mountain in Finland: a vast earthwork where 11,000 trees were planted, forming an elliptical shape 420m long, 270m wide, and 38m high. Sponsored by the UN and the Finnish government, it’s a protected area meant to evolve into a forest over four centuries, symbolizing humanity’s commitment to future generations. Each planter received a certificate, making them custodians for future generations. Dedicated in 1996, it’s a pioneering effort in ecological restoration through art.

Look at the result of this collective action here!
