About Us

The Urban Tree Revival Initiative (UTRI) is a network of youth-led, non-governmental organizations (NGO) based in Nigeria; we really hope to spread our operations across West Africa and to the rest of the world. UTRI membership includes volunteers who are nature lovers with multidisciplinary backgrounds dedicated to the advocacy of tree planting as one of the cheapest and fastest climate solutions.

Since 2019, UTRI has implemented several projects in the areas of advocacy on climate change and sustainable tree planting, climate education, forest conservation and restoration, promoting on-the-ground local climate actions throughout Nigeria and other West African Countries. This is in line with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 13—Climate Action and 15—Life on Land. UTRI envisions greening Nigeria by planting 5 million trees across deforested lands and public areas by 2030. This is to offset the increasing carbon emissions in the atmosphere. Our mission is to leave behind a sustainable environment for our future generations, better than we met it.
