In this Newsletter we talk abou fires 🔥. Increasingly large and voracious, encouraged by a prolonged heat wave and the strong wind, they have already damaged 😔 this summer several areas of our territory, especially Ribera d'Ebre. This has been the first major fire of the summer season ☀ and the forecasts are not favorable 🆘.
ClimaticChange and #RuralDepopulation are two factors that do not help and the solution involves prevention, through sustained forest management, to prevent our forests from becoming a powder every summer.
From Goteo Foundation, we support any initiative aimed at preventing this situation, alleviating the damage and returning life to the affected areas. In this newsletter we talk about three campaigns that are already active and ask for your collaboration to face this reality and save our forests before it is too late.
On June 26, 2019, Ribera de Ebro, Garrigues and Segrià suffered one of the most important forest fires of recent decades 🔥🔥🔥. More than 6,000 hectares of farmland and forest were razed by the flames causing significant losses both in the natural landscape, as well as in the soil, biodiversity, olive trees, vineyards and almond trees, as well as the projects and dreams of farmers and ranchers who They subsist from their farms.
The #Rebrotem platform (#Sprout) wants to bring life back to the territory ✊🌱 after the forest fire and activate citizen solidarity for the creation of a common economic fund that can restore the rural ecosystem and initiate activities focused on the reflection and reconstruction of a new rural and forestry model. Enter goteo.cc/rebrotem, make life possible and sponsor one hectare 😉🌲
Emergency services usually remember that extinction does not solve the problem, we must invest in prevention. 🔥💥🌳 "Trees that do not burn. Women in prevention of forest fires" is a collective publication that brings together experiences of #activism ✊, daily work and teaching resources 📚 as well as #illustration and #poetry to publicize the decisive role of # gifts in the prevention of #fires and forest management ⛰ the territory of #Galicia and #Portugal.
As a collective project, the Proxecto Batefogo team participates in the conception and documentation with several authors in the texts, Cestola na Cachola in the illustration and Catro Ventos in the edition. Support the project in goteo.cc/arboresquenonarden and keep at home a small compendium of #wisdom to continue helping us to conserve our forests 😉🌳
For the 4th consecutive year, Reforest-Action Network 🙌 carries out its mission as a non-profit association created in 2016 in response to the #fire 😞🔥 that in 2015 razed 8,600 hectares in Sierra de Gata. What do they do? Something as simple and powerful as spreading seeds 🌱 so that life can come back and establish itself strongly ✊😊
They work by planting trees and planting seeds, many seeds. Recovering diversity, opening awareness and facilitating experiences of personal growth through the care of Nature. If you love Mother Nature as much as she loves you, participate in goteo.cc/revoluciondesemillas and make it possible for them to continue with their work! 🌱🌿🌳🌱🐛🐝🐞 ️
Feliz inicio de verano!
So, we leave it here for this time and wish you a happy summer start. We hope you continue enjoying lakes and mountains with responsibility, taking care of them 365 days a year. You will always have us by your side 😊👍 in the mission of co-creating a positive ecological footprint and promoting a sustainable rural economy based on forest management adapted to landscape ecology.
See you soon! 😉👋
