The Grand Ducal House of Mecklenburg-Strelitz has been awarded the honorary title of ‘Friend of Peace of the International Tree of Peace Project’ by the Slovakian non governmental and non-profit organisation, Servare et Manere.
The International Tree of Peace Project originated in the Slovak Republic in 2018 with the goal of promoting a message of peace through the planting of at least one Tree of Peace on every continent.
The project was originally associated with the centenary of the end of the First World War. It has since evolved to having a more general focus of promoting ideas of peace and friendship amongst nations and spreading an ecological message through the planting of trees as a symbol of peace and remembrance with a respect to nature.
To date Trees of Peace have been planted in Uzbekistan, Liechtenstein, Slovakia, the United Kingdom, Germany, Serbia, the United States, Russia, Poland and Austria. A number of further trees are planned.
