HUG A TREE
THE first TreeHugging World Championships have taken place.
More than 12,000 people watched the event unfold on social media. Participants could upload their own pictures of treehugging while the live event took place in Lapland, Finland.
Competitors battled it out in three events: speedhugging (hugging as many trees in 90 seconds), dedication, and freestyle, awarded to the most dedicated and creative hugs.
Stefania from Italy was the overall winner thanks to her “convincingly caring” hugs.
