Find a tree. In your street, in your village or in your forest. Take a selfie with that tree and post it on Facebook. Then ask your friends to do the same. Now you have showed your support for a future Cambodia with forests. In a way, you have saved the forest with a selfie. Simple, right?

This November, the Prey Lang Community Network asks Cambodians to take selfies with trees, to show the Cambodian delegation at COP22 in Morocco, that they want a future with forests.

This action will remind the Cambodian government of the promise made last year at COP21. A promise to secure 60 % forest cover by 2030. Right now, the forest cover in Cambodia is only 47 %, declining every day. If the Cambodian government is not taking immediate action to stop all timber industry in the Cambodian forests, there might be no forests left in Cambodia by 2030.

At the end of November, thousands of tree selfies from all over Cambodia will show that Cambodians care about their forest. And that they want their leaders to act now to save the Cambodian forests.
