The Thinking Watermill Woods
At The Thinking Watermill Society, we do researches, we organize round tables and conferences, and we publish books and reports.
Our activities, as all human activities, contribute to global pollution due to the consumption of energy and production of CO2, even if the protection of the environment is one of our priorities.
For this reason, we thought about creating a wood of trees through “ZeroCO2”, a B corporation specialized in reforestation projects and, thanks to our supporters, we started with 100 trees planted in Guatemala; besides contrasting climate change, this will give work to some families of farmers.
More trees have followed and others will follow. We call it wood because the trees are still a few, but we hope they will become a forest.
We would like to reach 10,000 trees, which would cover approximately 40 hectares, which are 100 acres (“Hundred-acre wood”) because we believe that, in order to save the world, we should remain children in some way and be inspired by fairy tales.
The trees are planted not only in Guatemala but also in Italy and in other parts of the world and, hence, the name “The Thinking Watermill Woods”.
Ex-change your tune project
A series on exchanging ideas and promoting debates regarding the environment and climate change.
The negative impact of climate change is plain to see: the consequences of pollution, soil erosion, loss of green areas. We invite our readers to send us (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org) their own podcasts and videos explaining what they do, or what they invite others to do, in order to contrast climate change and environmental degradation. We then publish the best podcasts.
“When we speak about climate change and saving the planet, we tend to always talk about what corporations, politicians and scientists should do. That’s fair enough because they are among the most important actors in this topic. But it is too easy. In fact, I have always felt that we just do not do enough ourselves to change our habits.”
We believe that the re-discovery of the small cities and villages can really ensure a better life. This is the reason why we are supporting a pilot project together with the “Salute e Società AdV” and the local authorities which focuses on Guarcino, a nice small village in the center of Italy, with the aim to create good conditions of work and life for young couples as well as retired people who want the opportunity to embrace a more sustainable rhythm of life.
