Environment Online and Envirate start co-operation to increase 
environmental awareness, plant trees and rate cities around the world

To boost environmental awareness and action, Envirate started a partnership with Environment Online (ENO). Envirate was introduced to ENO first time last year when Envirate launched its award-winning mobile application at the international ENO’s Act Now conference on June 15th, 2017 in Joensuu.

The global ENO network has planted over 20 million trees and has established a network of over 10 000 schools in 150 countries. ENO network has excellent know-how and experience in tree planting activities. “We, in both Envirate and in ENO, believe that tree-planting is one fundamental key to a better planet,” says Pekka Harju-Autti, the founder and CEO of Envirate. He assures: “It is envisaged that ENO network has a key role in planning large tree planting projects. To make our mutual vision happen for the more sustainable planet, we shall deepen our organizational relationship in the near future”.

Envirate allows anybody with a mobile phone give ratings on the environment around them wherever in the world. ”Envirate is a perfect tool for us and our global network. We will start to use Envirate in our ENO activities, and we will challenge our Green Cities around the world to join this huge environmental movement and rate our network’s cities”, acknowledges Mika Vanhanen, the founder of ENO.

To kick off the new co-operation, Envirate and ENO will publish their mutual competition for their extended networks tomorrow. Global “City Challenge” competition starts at 9 am on Tuesday, June 22nd, 2018. The competition will encourage people to rate their environment according to their three main senses: look, hear, breathe. Follow the Envirate and ENOFacebook pages to get further information about the competition, so you can be among the firsts to get the instructions on how to win the newest Nokia 7 Plus mobile phones while doing good for the planet Earth.
