We are busily preparing the first Academy in Taiwan, supported by GIGABYTE. Thanks to our intern Angela, we already printed our brand new Climate Justice Ambassador Certificates in Traditional Chinese. Wanna become Ambassador as well?

Whoa what an afternoon of connection yesterday after what was already a full and wonderful workday. This fab beautiful group of humans met us in the tree nursery yesterday to do an interview for their new online platform for people to connect with real ecological projects, volunteer, promote, share, educate and uplift. It's going to go live in a few days and I'll be sure to share it here with you. As the fog rolled in and the rain sprinkled, we just kept taking turns talking and talking, feeling the high vibes in each of us. There is so much energy to be the change. I feel it everywhere, all among us humans. So I'm very excited about this platform and being featured on it with the chance to continue to connect with other people who might want to join us in reforesting the equator. And to learn about how we can collaborate with other projects and people! It's amazing to be supported by like minded people. All of us Eco-warriors need it, because often it has been a scary, lonely, humiliating path. Now more people will have a way to find the souls doing amazing things for our Earth and her people. As we keep finding friends who align with our dreams and goals, it seems like we find a bit more of ourselves. To give and to receive. We keep picking up our humiliated, tired, worn out broken pieces and putting them back together ... stronger and wiser, more loving and more compassionate, more forgiving and more humble. The need to strive disappears. Things comes easily and naturally. No fear about the future. Only hope and inspiration for being the ones we've been waiting for. Thank you guys so much. Then they made me put on clean clothes and take my hair down for my first professional photograph session ever taken in my adult life. You might think I'd have tons of them, but I don't. @patrickbiller @izzyaroundtheworld #connections#treefriends #ecoyou.me #online#platform#find#you#me#ecowarrior#savetherainforest#planttrees#photographs#hairdown
#artwork#dragon#tree#made of #treebark and #acrylic#paints Trees absorbing and storing carbon Because trees absorb carbon dioxide and turn it into wood, where the carbon stays bound up for hundreds or even thousands of years, living forests are an important part of the earth’s climate system. Growing trees soak up CO2 from the atmosphere and store it in their trunks, roots, leaves, and forest soils. Trees affect our climate, and therefore our weather, in three primary ways: they lower temperatures, reduce energy usage and reduce or remove air pollutants. Each part of the tree contributes to climate control, from leaves to roots. ... They cool the air through a process called evapotranspiration.
If we had understood the earth as the mother of all, even of great values, we would have treated the earth in a different way. We have destroyed it. We have almost poisoned it. We have broken its ecological unity. We have disturbed its environment. And now with nuclear weapons we are ready to destroy it. And it is the source of all that is beautiful, and all that is great. The earth is sacred.” #nature#naturelovers#savetrees#green#greenry#saveplanet#saveearth#love#planttrees#plant#planttree
