Dr. Anne Hallum founded the Alliance for International Reforestation (“AIR”) after she felt called to this work during her first trip to Guatemala with Stetson University. Since 1993, AIR has been tackling hunger, rural education needs, and environmental devastation in over 250 communities—offering long-term solutions through education and tree-planting micro-businesses.
In 2017, AIR was one of the winners of the prestigious Equator Prize for Sustainable Development from the UN in New York City.AIR was also honored with the “Momentum for Change” Award from the UN convention in Poland, as well as, numerous national awards in Guatemala, and CNN Heroes in 2011.
Anne received her doctorate from Vanderbilt, and she taught environmental politics at Stetson University in Florida for 26 years before moving to Dunwoody in 2012 to work full-time (non-salaried) for AIR.
