In addition to the intellectual records in the Guinness World Records, there are also interesting world records. Let’s talk about the Guinness record created by embracing trees. What is going on here?
Hundreds of people gathered in the woods of the Grugapark in Essen. Together, they made a seemingly strange action-each holding a tree. These people, young and old, men and women, do not see anything in common in their costumes, but all of them have smiles on their faces. They held the big tree quietly and broke a world record in just one minute!
According to data from the environmental protection organization WWF, 35 football field-sized forests are cut down every minute in the world. The environmental protection organization initiated this hug tree activity, which is also a large-scale environmental protection project of WWF environmental protection organization in Germany this year.
The activity of embracing trees broke this world record in one fell swoop. 848 people participated in this activity that day, breaking the world record.
At 11 noon on May 14, hundreds of people gathered on a large piece of grass in the park. The organizer announced the tree-holding rules to the horn: each person holds a tree. If the tree is too thick, two or more people can hug it together. But be careful, don’t touch each other’s hands, and make sure that it’s the person touching the tree.
The trees in the park have long been allocated, and the trees to be hugged are marked by a ribbon. In order to distribute the visitors as quickly as possible, the organizers divided the crowd into several groups and scattered them in different tree areas. After everything was in place, a group of hunters dressed up blew the hunting horn. At this time, people began to open their arms in front of their trees, hugging the trees affectionately; some people did various interesting actions; some visitors even kissed and whispered to the tree… Every participant’s face was filled with Joy and smile.
