Knowing that the love and energy I have poured into creating Julie Dawn Fox in Portugal helps you have a better experience of Portugal is priceless. I never fail to get a thrill when readers or clients write to tell me what a difference my recommendations and support have made to their trip.

But I want to make a bigger difference in this world.

And I’ve found the perfect way to do this.

I am excited to have partnered with Tree Sisters to fund a diverse portfolio of tropical reforestation projects that are ethical, community-led, expand natural forest cover and aim to avoid further deforestation.

Their work directly and indirectly supports several of the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are about making a dramatic difference in all key areas to make the world a better, cleaner, safer place for everyone.

What is Treesisters?

TreeSisters is an invitation to everyone to do as much radical good as they can for the planet. Our global network of treesisters is transforming both lives and landscapes in extraordinary ways. TreeSisters offers unique global programs that focus on encouraging women’s leadership, Nature-connection, and significant behaviour change as we make the shift from being consumers to restorers.

TreeSisters is funding the restoration of environments, biodiversity and communities within more than 10 major ecosystems around the global Tropics, through a diverse portfolio of vetted, trusted reforestation projects and in the process, planting millions of trees.

You don’t even have to actively become a part of Treesisters to make ecological restoration the new norm, although you’re more than welcome to do so. From January 2022, everyday actions that you take on my website will automatically and actively transform lives and restore our planet. With no extra cost or effort on your part.

Simply by using the Julie Dawn Fox in Portugal blog or services to plan your trip, you are:

  • planting tropical trees,
  • sequestering carbon, 
  • directly helping to replenish the world’s forests,
  • empowering women, 
  • helping impoverished communities

  1. Julie, you have my full support to integrate as much as possible SDG’s in tourism. It makes much sense to combine two reinforcing objectives. I’m living in Lagos, Algarve since my retirement last November after worked for international development institutions. If I need one of your services I’ll definitely keep it in mind. Best regards, Frans
