In reposnse to the great demand we have extended the deadline for registering to plant or pledge trees. However we would ask you not to make any more bank transfers at this stage. Please use the paypal option or you can also pay directly at the event.

In March 2010 expats and Belgians came together to plant a forest in one day with sunbeams. Over 2,000 trees were planted and are now bursting back into life with the return of spring. Your can see coverage of last year's event here. This year we have a bigger plot of land and hope to plant many more trees - for which we need your help.


Sunbeams invites you to come and help us make Belgium a little bit greener on March 20th, 2011. 

For just €5 you can have a healthy sapling (~125cm tall) to plant in your name, or dedicated to someone else  - register now to reserve your tree(s).

We would love you to come along and plant the trees yourself, but if you can't make it we will have plenty of willing hands to plant them on your behalf.

The sunbeams forest is part of the United Nations Environment  Programme's Billion Tree Campaign.


Sunday 20th March 2011. 10.00 - 16.00


as well as children and adults from national and international organisations, groups and schools, the Slovenian and UK Ambassadors and the EU Commissioner for the Environment will participate in the tree planting event.
