This NGO claims they can Stop Climate Change - 
and they need your help

You can now be part a the pilot project that can change the world forever.
Afforest4Future is running a crowdfunding campaign to pilot a Desert Greening Method that could green the Sahara and sink historical carbon emissions.

Support them now!


Did you know that we are currently losing 12 million hectares of arable land every year due to desertification? This is about 23 hectares per minute! And 30% of all world's agricultural land is already highly degraded…  where will we get the food to feed the growing population? Our planet will soon be home to 9 billion people, and providing enough food and vital resources for all will be a great challenge for our generation.

Dams and man-made lakes are some of the main reasons for land degradation in fragile alluvium ecosystems. As the river continues to bring the same amount of dispensed sediments (same as before it was dammed), the mad starts to accumulate at the bottom of the reservoir. With time, this problem gets worse and worse - reducing the amount of available fresh water and hydropower. Namely more than 42% of the world’s dams face siltation problems in the next decade, with an estimated cost of siltation at over $21 billion per year.


Afforest4Future has a system design that will tackle exactly these issues. It was developed during four years of doctoral research at TU Wien done by one of founders of Afforest4Future, Vesela Tanaskovic. They offer an holistic approach to solve one of humanity’s burning issues.
Their patent-pending methodology desilts desert lakes and prolongs their life cycle and efficiency whilst utilising the by-product to produce fertile soil from desert sand and rock. Sounds awesome, isn't it? They excavate the silt that is endangering the dam, and transport it to a processing facility, where it is treated and further pumped into desert. Like that, new soil is created and locked in with multiple species, enhancing the biodiversity in our agroforestry system. 

They are now running a KATANA Fundraising Campaign to run a small pilot project and generate awareness of the these issues. Their dream is to make the world’s deserts green and ready to welcome exceptional population growth - so there's little to no time left. They need to implement this as soon as possible.

You can support them with EU10, EU30 or even EU900 for a full ski week. After all, we won't have any more snow if we don't stop climate change soon. This is cool, smart and can really make an impact. Don't think it twice - spread your love for trees and support Afforest for Future in this green adventure.

  2. Very interesting pilot project.
    But I think they should approach the local Government first, before going for public fund-raising. That will authenticated their claim.
