Ashoka Fellow
Italy
Fellow Since 2018
This description of Federico Garcea's work was prepared when Federico Garcea was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2018.
Introduction
Federico co-founded Treedom, an online platform that allows people and companies to plant trees remotely and offset CO2 emissions by directly financing small farmers in economic hardship. He is creating an alliance between farmers and supporters willing to make reforestation a sustainable source of long-term income for smallholders. Treedom empowers local communities to start new agricultural enterprises by helping them fill the time gap between planting a seed and growing a tree.
