Aani and the Tree Huggers is based on a true event in northern India, and presents an enduring message of bravery and environmental action. Aani, a young girl in a large Indian family, makes a decisive move to save her special tree from the cutters that have stormed their beloved forest.
This story is based on actual events known as the Chipko Andolan (Hug the Tree Movement), which took place in northern India in the 1970s. These were the original Tree Huggers! Because of this movement councils in India meet within most villages to decide how many trees can be cut without endangering the land and those who live there, and also, new trees are planted each spring. There is much to be learned and remembered here.
