It’s becoming more and more known that nature based solutions are THE way to reverse climate change. To spread this message even faster, we develop positive awareness campaigns. And because we are in a bit of a hurry, we have developed five different campaigns in four different countries this fall! Did you spot them already?

GROUNDbreaking news: Justdiggit’s Regreening platform!
From now on you can invest in a greener and cooler climate by working together with a farmer in Kenya and seeing the result directly. With our new Regreening platform developed in collaboration with our partner DEPT Agency!
By registering on the Regreening platform you can buy your own unique bunds. Bunds – which we also like to call earth smiles – are moon shaped pits that collect rainwater in dry areas. With this you ensure regreening and directly support an African farmer who digs the bunds. A true win-win situation! After digging, you will receive a photo of your bund and regular updates. This way you can follow the regreening closely!

Out of Home advertising
Some of the Tanzanian villages that practice Kisiki Hai are promoting the regreening method through Out Of Home (or ‚On My Home‘?) advertising.
‚Kijanisha Dodoma Iwe Poa‘ means ‚A greener Dodoma is a cooler Dodoma‘.
New movie roadshow
After a successful first movie (that reached 324 villages and about 200,000 people in the Dodoma region in Tanzania), it’s time for a follow-up! We’re going back to the villages in Dodoma with a new road show.
In Kisiki Hai I we introduced the farmers to the regreening technique Kisiki Hai (translated from Swahili: living stump), in the second part a clear sequel in which we go deeper into the techniques and where we can already show the first success stories.
