Socioeconomic Aspects and Factors of Greening and Desert Research in Surface Mining Deserts

Historical and cultural information on the past of the landscape and its use, also before the industrial mining period, are offered in the research camp as well as on corresponding pages on the Internet. Products such as books, pictures, photographs, films, works of art and antiques can be offered in a separate shop. Many socioeconomic factors and, above all, commercial aspects are in the area of ​​health care, recreation, sports and tourism. There are many commercial and economic effects in terms of income sources, employment and multipliers.

Other aspects:

  • Annual analysis and adaptation of the target groups, needs and interests of the visitors and / or customers with regard to the new mountain landscape landscapes (BFL) or lake landscapes
  • Direct and indirect employment and income effects, sales and profits through the sustainable management of opencast mining and mining landscapes
  • Marketing, merchandising and promotion on all possible channels, networks and platforms in German and English
  • Sustainable and forward-looking planning for the consumer and tourism sector
  • Bringing to the landscape dynamics and development in all its facets, showing the natural development processes of the landscape and vegetation
  • Use of local conditions and natural developments for unique natural experiences and experiences in the daytime landscape
  • Improvement of the image of the former day building landscape, elucidation of current, completed and future transformation or transformation processes
  • Arrangement of inexpensive tours and courses (for example, adventure walks, boat trips, bike tours) to the various natural themes, especially on the subject of nature conservation and natural forces

Financing can be provided through various sources of finance, such as crowding, capital, capital, investment capital, credit, venture capital (venture capital), private and public funding. The best is a good mix of uncomplicated and different financing, especially if there is enough evidence of efficiency and feasibility. Similar and successful concepts, feasibility studies and market analyzes in the relevant areas can make financing much easier. Profitable, long-term or future-oriented business ideas and concepts are often financed quickly. Unique features and strong references promote successful funding for new start-ups, start-ups, projects or existing companies.

There are many other social and economic (sociocultural) aspects or topics on greening and desert exploration in opencast mining deserts. These are extensively analyzed and processed with the Greening Deserts research projects. Read more on the official pages and in the masterplan: “Concept and Study on Sustainable Greening Methods, Greenhouse Management, Forestry, Agriculture and Culture Industry for Surface Mining and Post-Mining Landscapes“.

 

Further Goals and Ideas for the Effective, Sustainable and Fast Cultivation of Surface Mining Landscapes

In this article, further approaches and ideas for naturalization, rehabilitation, cultivation and recultivation will be presented in relation to all responsible persons and within the scope of the greening and research projects for surface mining or post-mining landscapes.

An important goal for opencast mine and post-mining landscapes or lakelands is the production of a balanced, stable and clean water balance as well as a good soil quality. The following points must be observed:

  • Balancing the nutrient and pollutant content through filter systems and regulating the oxygen content by means of ventilation and circulation. This can also be achieved by integration into irrigation systems on land and with suitable plants, water plants and microorganisms
  • Compliance with limit values ​​and reduction if possible, for example noise level, loads and pollutants in surface mining or post-mining landscapes
  • Comprehensive investigation, research and use of hitherto unknown methods of detoxification or cleaning and regulation, including the improvement of groundwater and soil
  • Efficient fieldwork and advanced field research
  • Exploration of further methods of improving soil and water quality, feasibility studies and weighing efficiency / benefits
  • Achieve good water quality according to the EU Bathing Water Directive
  • Encourage or support the self-cleaning of surface mining lakes
  • Promotion of the settlement of endangered animal and plant species by the establishment, extension and maintenance of free, undeveloped nature reserves
  • Research on improved methods of colonization and propagation of endangered species, the creation of suitable habitats and zoological gardens or parks
  • Counteracting or reducing the entrophy and acidification of lakes and groundwater
  • Monitoring of soils and water bodies using appropriate instruments
  • Long-term planning and annual adjustment of the design concept as well as the renovation plans
  • Subsequent integration of visitors from all areas into the entire process, providing exploratory tours and hands-on workshops in the research camp and secured terrain
  • Shore and embankment protection as well as appropriate coastal greening should be preferred to pure gravel or sandy beaches
  • Lectures, photo and film shows, information and teaching events

Responsible organizations, institutions and persons must comply with the laws, regulations and guidelines, and must regularly prove this, if possible every year.

A good example of waterborne and aftercare is described in the “Sustainable recreational use and tourism in post-mining landscapes”. Here is an excerpt:

“Water maintenance is the task of preserving or restoring the functionality of the water bed including the shores to the top of the slope. This also includes the ecological and land-cultural function of water bodies, in particular

(1) the conservation and restoration of a native plant and animal population in natural diversity;

(2) the maintenance and improvement of the self-cleaning capacity, unless other are required to do so;

(3) the maintenance, cleansing and clearing of the waters and shores as far as is necessary;

(4) the keeping of the waters and its banks of pests;

5. the removal of solid substances from or from the waters of the waters, in so far as is necessary in the public interest. “

Documentations and information on the cultural, settlement, social and economic history of the region can be processed in various forms or varieties in the future, eg in tourist offers. This includes, for example, the expansion of the leisure activities and the program by means of landscape-related sports and games. These include, for example, Fitness facilities and activities, motor sports, mountain biking, aerial sports, water sports, winter sport and new sporting activities – all with the best possible connection to nature and nature conservation. In the future real recreational parks can be developed and built with a real relationship with nature.

Cultural, Social and Economic Aspects for Greening of Surface Mining Landscapes

On the pages of Greening Deserts and in the entire concept, cultural, social, economic and scientific aspects of professional greening and research projects for mining, surface mining and post-mining landscapes are described. Important and additional points are summarized here.

  • Agriculture, sustainable farming and agricultural forestation or agroforestry are important research fields
  • Establishment and development of a professional network with experts in the fields of culture, business and science – especially in the field of nature conservation, sustainable greening, agriculture, forestry and greenhouse management
  • Development and offer of an extensive sociocultural program with art and music, free of charge and paid
  • Offer and sale of natural products (medicines and crops) and services, see concept and section ‘Services’
  • Exhibitions from and for art, not just landscape art
  • Involvement of artists and works of art in the landscape and processes
  • Introduction of landscape planning, nature conservation and socioeconomic areas or fields by integrating suitable and interested institutions, organizations and partners as well as persons and associations with potential or professional competence
  • Promotion of the recultivation and rehabilitation of opencast mining areas for a better future use, sustainable nature conservation, cultural, social and economic purposes in connection with the respective municipalities and regions
  • Integration of schools, universities and other educational institutions in the development and development process, but also through extra programs, guided tours, trainings, workshops and events
  • Sustainable landscaped recreational use, national and international tourism with the best possible natural experience, cultural and artistic life experience

Development of Sustainable and Diverse Cultural Landscapes in Surface Mining Areas

The Greening Deserts projects focus on sustainability and diversity, especially for greening and research camps in surface mining landscapes. The projects act lawful and forward-looking in the context of the experiences, possibilities and knowledge. Here are some important points.

  • Vote and exchange with the relevant authorities, such as the nature conservation authority
  • Other good or potential cultures, international developments and projects should also be integrated, through exchanging and sharing of experiences, research and development of better or new greening procedures and cultivation of potential crops for land and water
  • Offers of social and cultural programs, guided tours, trainings, workshops and events
  • Processing and offering a comprehensive sociocultural program with art and music, free of charge and paid
  • Exhibitions from and for art, not just landscape art
  • Observation, integration and creation of traditional cultural landscapes in post-mining landscapes, for example through typical healthy vegetation (mixed forests) and species diversity (diversity)
  • Promoting the cultivation of flowering plants and protection of insects
  • Botanical gardens or parks with plants and animals from all over the world can be integrated very well into extraneous natural areas or landscapes
  • A good idea is to establish the allotment gardens (allotments) in opencast mining or surface mining landscapes
  • Integration of schools, universities and other educational institutions in the developments and development processes
  • Sustainable landscape and nature oriented recreation for national and international tourism with the best possible natural experience, cultural and artistic life experience
  • Creating lakes and water reservoirs by flooding surface mining holes, dips or valleys
  • Cultivation of agricultural or cultivated crops like bamboo, potatoes, hemp or cannabis – they are great plants for top soil production
  • Connection of culture and nature with relation to forestry and agriculture
  • Lectures, photo and film shows, information and teaching events

In the case of extensive interventions in the landscape and nature (protective goods such as nature reserves), an environmental impact assessment (EIA) is prepared, although this is usually only necessary if a spatial planning or planning procedure is necessary. The assessment of environmental impact should be carried out not only voluntarily and for the site search, but also for all projects which could have a significant impact on the protection of the protected goods.

Potentials of Sustainable Greening and Research in Opencast Mine and Mining Landscapes

We call for greening campaigns and research camps for opencast mine and former mining landscapes.

Innovative ideas and potentials for sustainable greening and research projects for post-mining landscapes and opencast mining (opencast mining) are briefly summarized.

  • General desert research and studies on desert plants or vegetation
  • Better drainage and distribution of surface, ground and ground water
  • Education and training of a better understanding of nature and understanding, especially for the young generation
  • Detoxification and detoxification of toxins and pollutants in the soil and water through surface mining operations and other environmental pollution
  • Development, extension and improvement of soil production and irrigation methods
  • Increasing the storage capacity, capacity and potential of soils, especially with loamy or other sealed soils and surfaces
  • Good balance of technical potentials and future use targets
  • Cultivation of medicinal and other useful crops in greenhouses and opencast mining areas
  • Developing or researching of new and optimizing old farming and gardening methods or techniques
  • Use of natural and artificial water reservoirs (tanks, ponds, reservoirs) for the production of various waters, e.g. Mixed, usable, mineral and drinking water
  • Potential for events and events in the cultural, social and scientific fields, e.g. exhibitions, information events and music events
  • Extensive and comprehensive information related to natural themes
  • Extensive exploration and documentation of the opencast mining deserts and nature including the animal world, also microcosm
  • Improve agriculture, hydroponics and permaculture methods or techniques
  • Improvement of cultural, social and economic offers in the respective regions, thereby reducing the lack of employment and unemployment in mining and opencast mining areas
  • Improved protection in extreme weather conditions, e.g. during flood catastrophes, storms and flooding
  • Improvement of the water quality by proven and new water systems, overground and underground
  • Reinforcement and improvement of the relation or connection between man and nature
  • Water processing, filtration and extraction
  • Future-oriented developments and explorations with the aid of greening and desert camps for all types of deserts or barren landscapes, also for deserts and desert explorations on the desert planet Mars


Further good ideas and innovations can be found throughout the concept and on the official pages.

Greenhouses, Gardening, Landscape Parks and Forests for Opencast Mining or Post-Mining Landscapes

The fields of horticulture, agriculture and forestry play a special role in the Greening Deserts research projects of the greening camps and research camps, so these areas are not only researched and developed but also documented and mediated. On the basis of practical and theoretical work and examples, old and new possibilities for opencast mining and post-mining landscapes are presented, improved and further developed. The first set-up of the greening campaign in the opencast mine area of Leipzig (opencast mining desert), is to create a multi-layered garden and park with test fields for regional, domestic and country-specific plant species and special species from all over the world. In greenhouses, in addition to plant breeding (young plants, cuttings or seedlings), possible environmental and climatic conditions are also simulated, in separate areas, rooms or boxes.

As also described in other parts of the concept, the focus is on the research and optimization of different types, types of bodies, lighting and irrigation methods. The improvement of soil production, soil quality and plant growth is another important focus.

The processes (irrigation, light and nutrient distribution) can be further optimized through effective and economical energy and resource consumption. These are also tasks and objectives for the sustainable greening and management of all sorts of barren and dry areas or landscapes.

Since pioneer plants populate the landscape relatively quickly in most open-cast mining landscapes, thus loosening and ventilating the soils, it is easier to create new plantings such as garden plants, parks and mixed forests (mixed forests). This also results in further possibilities for future landscape design, such as, for example, experimental gardening, gardening, creative and artistic design of green areas and landscape parks.

Greening Camps for Opencast Mining Landscapes Like in Leipzig Region Germany

Today we want to write about a special Greening Deserts project we started for opencast mining landscapes. Since years we think about greening camps and professional greenhouses for dry and barren landscapes like in opencast mines. We started to work on or planning an extra research camp at the opencast mine and new lakeland nearby Leipzig, Markkleeberg and Zwenkau. We informed all responsible institutions, regional, national and Europe-wide – so far and good we could with our projects.

Opportunities, innovations and  positive developments of Greening Deserts projects are proved and documented. It is very important and urgent that the projects get all help or support so fast as possible to reduce negative Climate Change, Desertification and Global Warming by professional greening and forestation. The projects are not just for climate protection, they are also good for educational, cultural, social and scientific purposes. With the right financial support we can finaly build up the company or project structure, build a team and the first greening camp. Calling now again for international help.

Waiting and waiting for real active support (especially financial) over a year now!

Hope the times will change and people wake up finaly, especially the responsibles.

Welcome to Greening Deserts Greenhouse and Desert Research Camp!

Welcome to the official pages for Greening Deserts projects in arid or dry, hot or cold regions. We offer professional greening services and solutions for coastal, subtropical, cold and semi-arid areas nearby water sources like lakes, rivers, seas or oceans!

This example video shows what today is possible with professional greenhouses and greening or gardening techniques like Hydroponics. We always prefer Permaculture, also without extra irrigation, but this depends on the plants and environment conditions.

Greening Deserts is a cultural, educational, economic, social, scientific and sustainable agriculture project using classical greening or gardening methods but also new and alternative techniques.

Greening of deserts, dry areas or barren lands with sustainable irrigation and renewable energy. Using filtered ocean or sea water, sharing systems overground and underground. Special desert plants can produce fast topsoil and create partwise shadows for plants around. With the right (financial) support we can start everywhere topsoil is needed. Together with the people of each region we also can create parks, woods and forests, especially in dry countries like Egypt, Libya, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Spain, Lebanon, Syria, Saudia Arabia, Qatar, UAE, Iran, Pakistan, India, China, Australia, etc. At the moment we concentrate on North Africa.

To accelerate the process professional greenhouses will be installed and newest sustainable cultivation techniques like aquaponics or hydroponics will be used. The project starts primarily near coasts with building Greening Camps and Desert Research Camps, a kind of farm with greenhouses and containers, tents or huts.

Benefits of clean technologies like irrigation with natural water sources (seas and oceans) and renewable energy supply with solar and water energy. The sea water will be pumped into over- and underground reservoirs at the camp. After that we can produce different kind of water, mineralised drink water, use, service or process water.

To produce topsoil we use best of soil producer plants, growing fast and producing a high amount of biomass. These special plants can also be used as organic fertilizer. More topsoil can be produced with recycling biowaste from cities or urban areas, a kind of biomass management together with the region.

We want to cultivate also food, herbs and medicinal plants are or were typical for each country or region we start, especially ancient plants were important in old times but today’s society has forgotten.

Greening Deserts projects are also good for refugee camps. Refugees can be integrated into the greening process, building greenhouses for food, medicine and forestation of parks and woods. They could create their own healthy environment and supply. We wrote detailed articles about this theme.

Visit the official pages for more information. Support also other sustainable projects like Desert Rice Cultivation and Desert Bamboo Project.

Maybe you want to join the team, be a future partner, sponsor or investor? Constructive advises, recommendations or suggestions are always welcome!

Desertification in Spain and Desert Greening Solutions

Climate Change could transform southern Spain into a desert: http://bit.ly/2dRzYtS
http://theatln.tc/2gcrhwo, bit.ly/2f3VlJf, bit.ly/2fD4sFP, nyti.ms/2fLlrRm, bit.ly/2vWingW

We can change that and stop the desertfication with our projects like Greening Deserts Camps and Desert Bamboo Project!

Another great idea is to use the greenhouses of Almeria partwise for massive forestation programs. If everybody just do a bit and we all work together on greening the dry areas we could get back the woods in Spain like in the good old times. Let’s come and start together, let’s make it happen!

Climate Conference Cop21 Paris – Cop22 Marrakesh

Shocking news, facts and scandals about the Climate Conference in Morocco.

“The organization of COP22 will cost some €100 million.”
Where all the money is gone or for what exactly was it spent on?

We wanted to visit the UN Climate Conference of the Parties (COP22) in Marrakesh, Morocco. Seems we are not welcome, we got no invitation. But ok, we have enough to do, no money and also no time for endless talks like in Paris which changed nothing or too little. Since years we call for help and real support, also financially. Hope they start finally to do something for the nature, for the poor people and for the regions really need change or help – so how they promised the last years. With all the money they waste for such conferences or campaigns they could help all that poor people and regions. And what is with animal and human rights and biggest climate problems like air pollution caused by meat and coal production? Questions over questions

Of course we are for the good people, organisations and developments at and around the conference, especially for the alternative camps like Alter Cop22 Forum de la Terre.

If you can’t support the project financially, you can support by sharing and with constructive feedback.

Greening Deserts is a sustainable project for greening, irrigation and forestation. The project is not just for dry or poor countries, it’s for all areas need more green, parks, woods and a healthy and more natural environment. To accelerate the process professional greening camp and research camp with greenhouses will be installed. Using clean technologies like irrigation with natural water sources (rivers, lakes, seas or oceans) and renewable energy supply with solar and water energy.

The project is mainly to restore and reclaim land or topsoil in the first three years, build groves, parks and small woods. Parallel we doing scientific studies with own test greenhouse and test fields new plants, irrigation and cultivation techniques. We offer a wide range of services (greening, buidling, etc.), check our pages and community network for more details.

At the end we all have a lot of parks, usable land for gardening, agriculture or just living. There are great opportunities and possibilities for greening dry areas near coasts, rivers or lakes. Another point is to green dry cities with Rooftop Gardening. The project will do a kind of acupuncture and help the nature to restore and expand in the region where the greening spots are. It is an epochal and important future project for us and the next generations. The project team thinks in the long term.

Please help us to realise the project and support us also without money. Share and recommend the project so we maybe reach people who can really help or support actively. Thank you and have a great time!
