Plant trees to celebrate my 100th birthday

How would you celebrate your 100th birthday? A tea party? A letter from the Queen? Well one woman, Ti Østmo, has celebrated in a rather unusual way, by holding a climate change rally on the beach. She says she was inspired by the activism of school children, led by Greta Thunberg. Friends and family were asked to plant trees instead of buying birthday presents.
