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.
Since early 2016 weather expert, tv presenter and artist Amara Onwuka has become our ambassador.
In 2015 she was the winner of Expedition Robinson and found out once again how important nature is to survive. Together with her years of experience in meteorology and her passion for nature she decided to support Justdiggit.
She even made a special Justdiggit weather forecast on RTLZ!
Reinier van den Berg
Weatherman Reinier van den Berg knows exactly how climate and environment affect our own wellbeing.
The way weather and climate influence each other is a topic he specializes in, and that is exactly why he became an ambassador for Justdiggit.
He is a sought-after speaker and is able to explain Justdiggit’s story in an inspiring and fun way.
Jonathan Karpathios is one of the best chefs of The Netherlands and he is an ambassador of Justdiggit!
Jonathan is very engaged in nature and healthy soils. He is the owner of restaurant Vork & Mes, where he cooks delicious meals with whole foods, found at local farms and his own four hectare garden, all natural and without pesticides. He won the prestigious prize “Gouden Garde” (Golden Whisk) for his beautiful cookbook in 2013.
Why he supports Justdiggit? Watch his video!
We produce regular documentaries about the progress we are making to keep you informed, involved and hopefully inspired.
Rainmakers is the first episode! In this documentary the local Maasai community in Kenya tells you about the impact climate change has on their livelihoods and the positive effect of the Justdiggit rain harvest projects.

- Organize an event
On the 20th of June 2017, together with Foundation E-rally we organized the E-rally: A 200 km tour for full electric vehicles! This event not even promotes electric transport, but also supports us in our mission to combat climate change.
Every year some of our ambassadors, like Amara Onwuka and Reinier van den Berg, participate in the rally. Since 2014 a total of €160.000,- has been raised(!) which all goes to Justdiggit’s projects in Africa! Watch the video for a compilation of last E-rally!
Supporting Justdiggit can be done in many ways! Team Power organized a squash event on the 21st of January 2017 with Dutch squash champions like Laurens Jan Anjema and Robert Jan Anjema. Former European Championship soccer player Marco van Basten and Justdiggit’s co-founder Dennis Karpes participated too!
There was a “Play with the legend” option, for which the participants had to donate € 1 per minute to compete with the legends and current champions. This fun initiative raised almost € 2000,-. We’re looking forward to more events like these to fund our re-greening projects.
Premiere documentary Pathe Tuschinski
On the 8th of December 2016 the premiere of our documentary Rainmakers took place in Pathé Tuschinski, the most prestigious cinema of the Netherlands.
It was great to see this theater filled with so many Justdiggit supporters including our partners and ambassador Floortje Dessing! This evening we also looked back on the impact we already have made so far and look forward to further greening the earth and unleashing the green revolution!
Tour of Nijmegen
Our Justdiggit team cycled the 75km of the Ronde van Nijmegen (Tour of Nijmegen) at the end of 2014, a beautiful tour for recreational cyclists.
Justdiggit did this together with ambassador Floortje Dessing, cyclist Theo de Rooij and other Justdiggit supporters. From each enrollment, the Round donated 2 euros to Justdiggit and thereby raised nearly €10.000 during this tour!
Project eARTh exhibition in San Francisco
Misho himself made his own beautiful design of our icon: the shovel. Together with other ‘shovel designs’ by renowned American artists as Johnny Botts, John Kraft, Yari Ostovani, Paul Morin, Gordon Huether, and Chad Glashoff, we create awareness for climate change with this exhibition.
Organize an event
Are you planning on organizing an event? And do you want to make your event even more special by raising funds and awareness for our re-greening projects?
Making learning cool
The primary school students are the first generation that really face the consequences of climate change and the last generation to do something about it. Therefore we developed a Justdiggit College with our ambassador astronaut André Kuipers, cool experiments and assignments.
They will learn about the importance of C02, soil, water, biodiversity and Justdiggit’s solution. With this knowledge we hope to inspire and motivate children to think about healthy ecosystems and how they can become part of a green revolution!
Learning can be cool!

Brands & Friends
Cooling down the planet together
Together with Justdiggit friends we create awareness or funds for the projects that Justdiggit is developing. We offer a global platform for these partners to achieve their climate targets and positively profile their brand with a generation of clients who become more climate aware and reward actions above words.
You don't have to feel guilty eating chocolate
The mission of Tony’s Chocolonely, our favorite Dutch chocolate brand, is to produce all chocolate – not just their own – 100% slave free. Tony’s Chocolonely contributes in a great way by funding Justdiggit’s projects.
Your journey is worth even more
Getaway Travel is specialized in developing inspiring travel sites. They started a crowdfunding campaign for our projects in a very innovative way; travellers are asked to submit their travel reports including photos, pictures and reviews. Their review concept supports us by collecting green shovels. For every shovel collected a donation goes to Justdiggit.
Dutch tapwater turns into global rainwater
With different restaurants – among which Landgoed Groenendaal and Vork & Mes – in The Netherlands we use tap water to support our projects. This way we are turning local drinking water into global rainwater. We’ve partnered up with glass producer Royal Leerdam and distributor Tamis Wijnen. Royal Leerdam is producing Justdiggit-branded water jugs and –glasses and Tamis Wijnen is introducing us to their network and connections in the hospitality industry.
Hornbach is one of the leading European D.I.Y. shops with over 140 stores in Europe. They decided to sponsor Justdiggit as they believe in action when it comes to climate change. In 2016, Hornbach sold recycled plastic bags. The bags were co-branded and all profits went to our projects. Another part of the collaboration was a drawing contest for kids whereby kids designed their own shovels.
Vandebron is the first energy supplier to buy energy directly from a sustainable and independent source. In addition, you can choose your own energy source: wind, water, bio or solar energy. Vandebron supports Justdiggit’s projects by funding quarterly.
Give a tree
With Geefeenboompje.nl (give a tree) an old tradition is restored: planting a tree when there is an important event in a human life. On their web shop, for every occasion a tree has been selected with its associated symbolism. Geefeenboompje.nl supports Justdiggit by donating an amount of every sold tree.
Our shovel is our icon! Artists from different countries have their own take on climate change and have designed their own shovel. The shovels can be seen at different exhibitions in the Netherlands and the USA.
