How many times we hear only bad news about the global warming every day?
There are so many to count. But the solution of that such important item is maybe easy to be found…by school kids.
In my village, at Chachagua, Costa Rica, every week I can see an ‘army’ of children from 6 to 12 years old, planting 2 or 3 trees each, having fun and playing with dirt and water…it brings beatiful remembrances to my mind!
They are always asking about the importance of conservation of the forest, in order to get drinkable water for all and for free in the community, they are so interested on a lucrative program they are developing with the certified woods they are planting, and more…
I am so glad finding native species of trees for them to plant, I like to talk to the farm owners to get permissions for the kids to work in their terrains, and I love to see their happy little faces once the job is done.
It’s known that the new trees are the good ones capturing the CO2 from the atmosphere, and then, to be added to their trunks. A hectare of young forest is more usefull than ten hectares of a forest older than 30 years. It is also important to plant only native species on the area, that way, we are making sure that the older forest will be fine, and we are not breaking the natural balance…
We need to improve this stuff, we need to start with this iniciative all over the world, we need more concerned goverments and everything is gonna be all right.
