WYD Global Race

The second edition of the World Youth Day (WYD) Global Race is just around the corner. From October 20 to 23, lace your shoes and join this worldwide event.

This race is an event by the JMJ Lisboa 2023 Foundation, one of the Global Tree Initiative partners.

The main goal will be to reduce the carbon footprint of the WYD. If you choose to participate, you will be contributing to reforest degraded land in Portugal, thanks to a partnership made with Arouca Geopark and sponsorship by Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Lisboa.

Every tree planted will then be dedication to JMJ Lisboa 2023, on the Global Tree Initiative’s global map.
