The Ecological footprint is a the metric that allows us to calculate human pressure on the planet and come up with results on how our activity affects our environment.
So, using the international footprint standards, the Tenerife Walking Festival will calculate the event impact over the environment.
Once we have the results, we will organise a tree plantation, using endemic species, with the objective to reach the zerofootprint.
With the plantation of endemic species, the Tenerife Walking Festival will help to the recovery of the local forests and will show its commitment with the fight against Climate Change.
