Climate Change Cleantech and Sustainable Energy

Climate Change, CleanTech and Sustainable Energy are important themes, also on the International Day of Peace. Important are also themes like Human Rights, Education and Sustainable Living. Let’s celebrate together and imagine a peaceful world without wars, hate, ignorance and all the negative characteristics of humanity. http://peacealliance.org/tools-education/peace-inspirational-quotes
 
Where ignorance is our master, there is no possibility of real peace.
We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves. – Dalai Lama
Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that. – Martin Luther King Jr.
Peace is a daily, a weekly, a monthly process, gradually changing opinions, slowly eroding old barriers, quietly building new structures. – John F. Kennedy
The day the power of love overrules the love of power, the world will know peace. – Mahatma Gandhi
Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding. – Albert Einstein
 
Some plants like bamboo have a very strong and positive effect on the environment and life forms. Maybe think about bamboo as a symbolic plant for peace projects, organisations or events?
 
Enjoy your day, do not forget the Human Rights Day on 10 December. Peace out ! Your Greening Deserts Crowd.

L’agriculture durable et le reboisement pour les zones sèches avec des projets de Greening Deserts

Leur objectif était toujours de rendre les zones sèches verte avec l’aide de cultivation durable. Ils ont hâte de rendre ce monde plus vert pour les générations futures. Avec l’initiative pionnière de Greening Deserts, l’organisation envisage de faire un bon usage de l’agriculture durable et les énergies renouvelables pour le bien de cultivation des zones pauvres. Considérant que les plantes du désert spéciales comme Desert Bamboo qui sont capables de produire des couches de terre végétale rapide et peut également offrir des ombres à d’autres plantes autour, ce projet vise essentiellement à cultiver les bosquets et les forêts, mais aussi la nourriture, les herbes et les plantes médicinales de chaque région.
Avec l’utilisation de systèmes d’eau de mer et de partage filtrés sur- et sous-sol, ce projet peut effectivement être un énorme succès. Avec l’accent principal sur l’utilisation des technologies propres, ils prévoient d’utiliser des conduites d’eau de bambou dans le but d’atteindre les zones sèches ou les régions éloignées dans le futur. Alors que le scénario mondialisé a pris tout l’univers sur un parcours d’une verdure perdue, cette organisation vise à rendre la planète plus verte du nouveau. Ils sont prêts à commencer partout où il y a une forte potentialité de produire la couche arable. Ils ont choisi des pays secs comme l’Egypte, la Libye, l’Algérie, la Tunisie, l’Afrique, le Maroc, l’Espagne, le Liban, la Syrie, l’Arabie Saoudite, Qatar, Émirats arabes unis, l’Iran, le Pakistan, l’Inde, la Chine, et beaucoup d’autres.

Greening Deserts Crowdfunding Campaign on Kickstarter is Live!

The Crowdfunding Campaign on Kickstarter is live! http://kck.st/2bSEhnV
Now you can support the project financially. But of course any other kinds of support like advises, recommendations or suggestions are welcome! Invite and share it with your friends, it’s all in good cause.

Great news, we got requests from some countries like Egypt, Tunisia, India, Pakistan and China for the Greening Deserts projects. We hope to get some support (land, materials, etc.) from each nation where we will start, so we could realise the first camps very fast and effective over the next years. The first desert plants and bamboo parks or little woods could stand in up to five years. If we do not get support from the governments or communities mentioned above we can lease land or start in Spain where we have a lot of good contacts and friends. You have ideas in which areas or countries the project could fit, too? Write a PM or comment below.

Big thanks to the first supporters who spend some money! The first 50 backers who spend 25 or more will get an extra surprise for their package, just a hint it has something to do with backpacks.

More details:
Greening Deserts is a sustainable project to green or cultivate dry areas, especially with special desert plants like Desert Bamboo. The project was developed over many years, the founder and initiator Oliver Caplikas started the first official pages in early summer 2016.

The project starts primarily near coasts with building greening camps, a kind of farm with greenhouses and containers, tents or huts. Using clean technologies like irrigation with natural water sources and renewable energy supply.

Greening Desert Camps could cultivate also food, herbs and medicinal plants are or were typical for each country or region the project starts, especially ancient plants were important in old times but today’s society has forgotten. The best plants for topsoil production can support to produce fast topsoil layers and spend shadows for other plants around.

Another main future goals are to build a water network for dry areas, to reclaim good land, save the environment by making it greener, improve the oxygen levels on earth and reduce the hunger crisis spread across various countries in the world. With your help we can restrict desertification and promote forestation. Please support our crowdfunding campaigns like on Kickstarter and/or Startnext!

With real (financial) support we could start everywhere it’s possible to get topsoil, especially in dry countries like Egypt, Libya, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Spain,..

Of course we will promote this event in our home country and cities like Berlin, Hamburg, Frankfurt, etc.

Thank you! Wish you all a great time!

German:

Greening Deserts ist ein nachhaltiges Projekt um trockene Gebiete zu begrünen, vor allem mit speziellen Wüstenpflanzen wie Desert Bamboo.

Die besten Pflanzen für die Erdproduktion können schnell gute Erdschichten erzeugen und spenden Schatten für andere Pflanzen rundherum.

Das Projekt beginnt in erster Linie in der Nähe von Küsten mit Greening Camps, eine Art Farmen mit Gewächshäusern und Containern, Zelten oder Hütten.

Nutzung von sauberen Technologien wie die Bewässerung mit natürlichen Wasserquellen und erneuerbare Energieversorgung.

Weitere Hauptziele für die Zukunft sind, ein Wassernetz auszubauen, für trockene Gegenden, gutes Land zurückzugewinnen, die Umwelt durch Begrünung zu retten, den Sauerstoffgehalt auf der Erde zu verbessern und die Verbreitung der Hungerkrise in verschiedenen Ländern zu reduzieren. Mit Eurer Hilfe können wir Desertifikation einschränken und Aufforstung fördern. Unterstütze unser Projekt auf den Crowdfunding Platformen Kickstater und Startnext.

Le projet commence principalement près des côtes avec la construction des camps d’écologisation, une sorte de ferme avec des serres et des conteneurs, des tentes ou des huttes.

Les camps Greening Deserts pourraient aussi cultiver la nourriture, les herbes et les plantes médicinales sont ou ont été typique pour chaque pays ou région, surtout les plantes anciennes qui étaient importantes dans les temps anciens mais la société d’aujourd’hui a oublié. Les meilleures plantes pour la production de la couche arable peuvent soutenir de produire des couches de couche arable rapidement et passer des ombres pour d’autres plantes autour.

D’autres principaux objectifs futurs sont de construire un réseau d’eau pour les zones sèches, de réclamer une bonne terre, sauver l’environnement en le rendant plus vert, améliorer les niveaux d’oxygène de la terre et de réduire
la propagation de crise de faim dans différents pays du monde. Avec votre aide, nous pouvons limiter la désertification et promouvoir le reboisement.

Merci bien.

Desert Grooves Africa Lounge Music Mix

Enjoy a special Greening Deserts music mix for Desert Grooves Africa!

Yes, Greening Deserts projects will integrate music, art and culture of each region but also from around the world. Greening Desert Camps have enough place for creative or experimental workrooms, studios or other kind of buildings, rooms or places. We can build a lot with bamboo that’s why each camp will have a Lounge.

Everybody is welcome to join us at our first camp!

Desert Plants Research of New and Old Species

We want to (re)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. That’s why Greening Deserts want to research or rediscover old plants and find new plants.

“The beginnings of civilization and the origins of the healing arts can be traced back to Africa and the divine Inmhotep, healer to the Pharaohs. The ancient African healers had an elaborate materia medica, most of the over 5,000 plant species have been used for food and medicine for centuries.” http://bit.ly/2arNKHJ, http://bit.ly/2aKpG0U, http://bit.ly/2ax49FK
