Archbishop Desmond Tutu is a South-African social rights activist.
He has been fighting for equal human rights for many years. For his efforts against apartheid, he received the Nobel Peace Prize. He is the patron and tireless ambassador for Justdiggit and tells the world to join the green revolution.
“Dig deep within your heart and join me in starting a green revolution. Justdiggit!”
Dutch Astronaut André Kuipers saw the beauty and vulnerability of our planet from space. The realization that a sustainable future is something we can only create by protecting the limited natural resources on Earth, led him to support Justdiggit.
Travel writer, producer and presenter Floortje Dessing has seen the beauty of planet Earth in many different places, as she travelled the world to show beautiful destinations. During these trips, she noticed that some parts of the world clearly degrade.
Floortje supports Justdiggit to stop the decay of these areas and to see them blossom for future generations.
In our campaign she tells the world to join and take the shovel for climate action!
Mark van der Molen en Rámon Verkoeijen
For Mark van der Molen and Rámon Verkoeijen it is a logical step to commit as ambassadors. Verkoeijen: “The story of Justdiggit is so easy to explain. It is actually bizarre that it has never happened before. The result of their action can already be seen, and with something as simple as a shovel.” Van der Molen agrees: “It is a creative solution. Moreover, the initiators of Justdiggit have already proven that they can bring change.”
Mark van der Molen and Rámon Verkoeijen provide the afternoon radio show at NPO 3FM. The program, entitled Mark + Rámon, can be heard every working day between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.
Tanzanian comedian Jaymondy makes us laugh, but also knows regreening the planet is not a joke!
Jaymondy plays a big part in the Regreen Revolution: he is the lead role in our documentary Kisiki Hai II, visible in our campaigns and he creates awareness through his own channels. We’re so happy to have him on board. Karibu sana, Jaymondy!
KRO-NCRV Presenter Tess Milne tells -with her contagious portion of enthusiasm – many people the story of re-greening the earth with a simple shovel.
Before, she presented Dutch shows such as Rekenkamer and Streetlab, and she was part of the RTL programs Roadtrippers and Expeditie Robinson. Now she is focusing on the next generation with the presentation of the kids program Willem Wever: A generation that can be inspired and activated to cool down our planet. You probably understand that we are very happy with Tess as ambassador.
Tess kicked off one of our donation campaigns by making the first contactless payment donation at a tram shelter in Amsterdam!
