Second Tree is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation founded by a group of independent volunteers who worked side by side with refugees in 2016 at the Katsikas camp in Northern Greece.
Second Tree was established to express, foster and advocate for the values of solidarity and intercultural dialogue experienced in Katsikas.
«The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago, the second best time is now.»
Second Tree takes its name from this proverb. Our belief is that it's never too late to take action and work toward making a positive difference in the world. We plant second chances for those who need them.
Our VisionWe aim to create a society in which fundamental rights, equitable access to resources and services and a healthy environment are granted to all. A society in which all individuals are provided with the tools they need to live in safety and with dignity.
