REVIVING STUMPS - STOPPING DESERTS
Regreening the earth without planting a single tree?
OUR STORY OF HOPE
DROUGHT & CLIMATE CHANGE
In many areas of the world, people are suffering from the seemingly unstoppable spread of deserts: People lose their livelihoods and leave their homes - the loss of fertile land and trees also accelerates global warming - a vicious circle.
REFORESTATION: EVERYTHING IS THERE
But there is still hope: in many of these arid regions, such as the African Sahel, an underground forest lies dormant. Tree stumps, once cut down and forgotten, can be brought back to life with a little care and protection. With minimal effort, trees can grow within a very short time, protecting the soil and making the land fertile again.
200 MILLION TREES
Millions of smallholders are already part of the so-called "FMNR movement" (Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration) - in the African country of Niger alone, over 5 million hectares have been revegetated and around 200 million trees have been grown. It is time to rewrite history together. Let's re-green the earth together.
