The People Behind Planet Loves Trees

“Many people, both young and old are concerned about the environment, climate change and the future of our planet.  I wanted to make a difference and show to my children that I am trying to make a better future for them. This is why I started Planet Loves Trees.” 

Niklas Andersson, Founder of Planet Loves Trees

“Many people, both young and old are concerned about the environment, climate change and the future of our planet.  I wanted to make a difference and show to my children that I am trying to make a better future for them. This is why I started Planet Loves Trees.” 

Niklas is an experienced consultant and project manager, with a history of working in the university and education management sector, as well as in the government. As the former Head of Department at Novia University’s department of Natural Resources and the Environment, he has a comprehensive understanding about forestry and forest management. Niklas has also worked as a volunteer for several development aid projects.

In his opinion we are running out or time and cannot rely on politics and regulatory measures to mitigate climate change.
