Justdiggit aims at reversing the process of global desertification and ecosystem degradation. The Foundation seeks to achieve this by implementing local ecosystem restoration programs, developing international awareness campaigns, and through education programs.
Justdiggit has a multi-annual policy plan in place for 2019-2030.
Our mission is to launch integrated landscape restoration programs in regions that can be restored and to create a global social movement for climate action. On the program side, we apply proven rainwater infiltration and conservation techniques at a large scale to restore entire ecosystems, aiming to make the local climate-resilient. On the social side, we build a global community for consumers, enterprises, scientists, and artists inspired by the success and simplicity of our projects combined with our creative marketing and communication.
Our fundraising strategy focuses on companies (amongst others company foundations, CSR, sponsoring), consumer donations, Rainmakers (Rainmakers are individuals who support Justdiggit with overhead costs funding, network and influence), and grant applications (foundations and international (climate) funds).
Donations with a certain purpose are reserved in our Appropriation Fund and are only used for agreed purposes. All available capital is at the free disposal of Justdiggit Foundation on her bank accounts.
The budget with planned expenditures for a certain year is approved by the Supervisory Board. The Managing Director gives account for the actual expenditures to the Supervisory Board at least quarterly.
Executive and Supervisory Board
Justdiggit Foundation’s Executive Board consisted in 2019 of Marjolein Albers (Managing Director) and Dennis Karpes (Creative Director and co-founder). In mid-2020 Dennis left the Executive Board, whereafter Wessel van Eeden (Global Marketing Director) and Niels Dierckx (Director Programs) have become members of the Executive Board.
