Pieter Van Midwoud: Combating Climate Change the Ecosia Way

Next Economy Now Podcast – Reforestation is a crucial tool in the fight against climate change, with benefits ranging from absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to supporting the planet’s intricate web of life. These efforts not only contribute to healthier and more resilient ecosystems, but also help to mitigate the damaging effects of climate change. To help unpack the benefits of reforestation, podcast host Erin Axelrod is joined by Pieter Van Midwoud, the Chief Tree Planting Officer at Ecosia. After finishing his studies, Pieter developed a certification scheme for forest carbon projects and joined Ecosia as their first tree-planting officer, creating a varied portfolio of reforestation efforts. Over 150 million trees have been planted to date, helping promote landscape restoration, community nourishment, wildlife protection, and carbon neutrality. Full Show Notes
