Greening Deserts Projects Want to Plant over 100 Billion Trees Worldwide

One goal of Greening Deserts projects is to plant over 100 billion trees worldwide, especially in Europe and Africa during the next years. Together with the nations and awesome projects like the Great Green Wall, Great Green Wall North Africa, The Green Belt Movement and the Trillion Trees Campaign we can reach the goal fast and efficient.
Alone the Sahara is an area of 9,500,000 square kilometres, this is equal 950,000,000 ha (950 million hectares). If we plant trees just on 10% of this area we could convert 95 million hectares dry and barren wasteland into fertile landscapes. We want to establish greening camps and connect schools, universities and other institutions to the Greening Deserts projects and partner programs. A broad education and culture is very important for the projects. With active participation and real support of the concerned regions and financial help of all nations and goverments we can start with first preperations still this year and in 2018 on site – and see first results still that year. With our worldwide greening and forestation (afforestation and reforestation) projects we can reduce global warming significantly. To cool down cities and urban areas (Global Cooling), more parks and green roofs (rooftop greening) are required.

Human Rights Day and Quotes

Share much Love, Peace, Harmony and Unity on the Human Rights Day and on all other days! And maybe think about Human Rights Days or a Human Rights Week? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_Rights_Day 

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. – Martin Luther King

The rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened. – John F. Kennedy

Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers. – United Nations, Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Freedom means the supremacy of human rights everywhere. Our support goes to those who struggle to gain those rights and keep them. Our strength is our unity of purpose. To that high concept there can be no end save victory. – Franklin D. Roosevelt

Human rights’ are a fine thing, but how can we make ourselves sure that our rights do not expand at the expense of the rights of others. A society with unlimited rights is incapable of standing to adversity. If we do not wish to be ruled by a coercive authority, then each of us must rein himself in…A stable society is achieved not by balancing opposing forces but by conscious self-limitation: by the principle that we are always duty-bound to defer to the sense of moral justice. – Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Greening Deserts Calling for Help and Support

How you can see on the crowdfunding pages only a couple of good people wanted to support the Greening Deserts project financially. There are many reasons like you can read here or in the last posts. It’s sad that so many people who can help ignore(d) such an important project also even if they know or noticed that the project needs help.

In todays times, so less care and showing some courage or real support for others, the nature or planet earth. The project is not just for the poor countries, it’s for all areas need more green, parks, woods and a healthy and more natural environment. To realise the project together with the world community would change the world into a better one.

Always remember, if you support the project you support yourself and your future, sad that so few people understand that. You help us and we can help us all, especially the poor and young generation.

If you want really help actively or financially you can connect the founder and send some money with paypal or credit card. You can send also a personal cheque, money order or bank draft. Adresses you can find in the info section and impressum. For each donation you can get the same rewards like in the crowdfunding campaigns. You will get your rewards if we have the money we need and can start with the first camp. If you can, write a mail before you send money, so we can stay in contact. Thank you, each donation counts! And thank you for liking, but constructive feedback, sharing or other real active support is better.

Greening Projects for Refugees and Refugee Camps

Today we want to write a bit about greening projects for refugees.

Why so many refugee camps have no or so less greenhouses, gardens and parks?

For some time we think about to help the poor with our greening or gardening projects, for countries (landscape greening) or cities (urban greening). Together it’s really easy to build up little greenhouses, community gardens and use permaculture or gardening techniques fit good with the regional conditions and environment, also without big irrigation. There are great greenhouse projects like Roots Up using water supply by air.
The refugee camps also could use cheap and portable (pop up) greenhouses, just for the case that camps will be closed and destroyed. How you can see we always thinking sustainable, economically and social. Greening Deserts camps are a good example for refugee camps – greening camps for refugees.
