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.

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 Deserts Cospuden Lake Leipzig Tour

Greening Deserts Tour at Cospuden Lake Leipzig in the New Lakeland, in German Cospudener See in der Leipziger Seenlandschaft (Neuseenland). These video clips were made during the countless discovery and reseach tours in the old opencast mining landscape in Saxonia. Since years we think about greening camps with professional greenhouses for dry and barren landscapes like in opencast mine deserts (Tagebauwüsten). We work and planning an extra research camp at the old opencast mine and new lakeland nearby Leipzig, Markleeberg and Zwenkau. We informed all responsible institutions, regional, national and Europe-wide - so far and good we could.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!Since years we work on innovative, sustainable and far-reaching projects for positive climate change and nature protection, education, solving food, housing and energy problems, reducing negative human-made climate change and global warming. Hope the times will change and people wake up finaly, especially the responsibles. #greening #desertgreening #environment #climatechange #umweltschutz

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.

Please help and support our sustainable startup for a greener and better future. Thank you! Check our project pages for more information.If you can't support the project financially, you can support by sharing and with constructive feedback. #sustainable #greening #deserts #startupGreening 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 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 doing science, study 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!

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.

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
