The first ENO Tree Planting Day was arranged 21 September 2004. It was later same year when Wangari Maathai received her Nobel Prize. Since 2004,  schools and partner organisations have planted trees every year to celebrate the international day for peace.  The next tree planting day will be special as ENO will celebrate its 10th tree planting day for peace.  10 trees planted in a circle represents 10th ENO Tree Planting for peace and Nobel Peace Prize Laureates 2004-2012.

The theme for the Day this year is "Education for Peace". The United Nations will examine the role education can play in fostering global citizenship. It is not enough to teach children how to read, write and count. Education has to cultivate mutual respect for others and the world in which we live, and help people forge more just, inclusive and peaceful societies.
