Concrete solutions for a clean future
"The key problem for us humans, in comparison to giant trees, is that our life is too short, and we are too unrestrained in our greed and consumption. Any political, economic and administrative efforts, target to regulate forest governance and use, are unfortunately idle: whatever we say about importance to balance our market needs and reforestation capacity, nobody listen to us, and, even if listen, none hear. So, the only way to safe our environment is to act against total praying for profit." - Alexey LEBEDEV, President of BROC-Vladivostok
The main objectives of Bureau for Regional Outreach Campaigns (BROC, Vladivostok) are to support and to promote environmentally oriented initiatives on the Russian Far East by implementing mass media campaigns and non-violent actions; to advocate resource usage monitoring; to collaborate directly with officials and decision makers; to support initiatives aimed at recreation and establishment of small business in remote towns, concerned to sustainable harvest and recovery of forest and marine resources for own and commercial use and local processing without development of huge enterprises; to promote traditional resource use of indigenous communities.
Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg are attempting the first round-the-world solar flight, an adventure to promote the use of clean technologies.
Clean technologies used on the solar aircraft could be used on the ground and reduce 50% of our world’s energy consumption... as of today. But for this, we need political courage and pioneering spirit.
We launched the #futureisclean initiative to create a federation of organizations pushing the replacement of old polluting devices by existing clean technologies.
Just like onboard Solar Impulse, solutions already exist to reduce energy consumption. We have gathered 357 organizations around this initiative. Some of them sent the solutions they wanted to promote at COP21.
The vote is now over, here are the top 5 solutions you voted for!
