Justdiggit believes it is time to share positive and hopeful insights when it comes to climate change. People must be aware that we can restore ecosystems and that solutions exist.
New Managing Director
Since August we have a new Managing Director, Marjolein Albers. As a former director of Dance4life and the Respect Education Foundation, Marjolein brings plenty of experience and is a huge asset to our team!
Support with one simple move
Together with brand new ambassador Tess Milne we invite passersby to support the Justdiggit projects while waiting for the tram.
How? By making an easy contactless payment at a tram shelter of JCDecaux.

Have you seen us already on TV, heard us on the radio or came across one of our green billboards?
Thanks to our partner Kinetic Nederland (and Ngage Media, JCDecaux, blowUPmedia, MMDDigital, CSdigital, Interbest), we are currently visible throughout the country on digital screens and billboards.
The Justdiggit campaign shows the positive results of our projects in Kenya with the message that large-scale regreening not only has a positive impact on the climate, but also contributes directly to water and food security, biodiversity and the local economy.
Justdiggit office designed by Studio Robin Sluijzer
While the re-greening activities are taking place in Africa, we are working hard at our Amsterdam office to make it all possible. This is what the Justdiggit team does in really cool furnished, and how could it be otherwise, green rooms! From the busy traffic and tourists outside, you step into a green oasis. Designer Robin Sluijzer is responsible for the interior and therefore for a healthy working environment and extra work motivation for Justdiggit!
It’s time to bring him and his ‘free of charge’ efforts to your attention. –>
A green Kuku & Amboseli
Recently, we were in Kenya again to see the long-term impact of our landscape restoration projects in the Kuku Group Ranch and the Amboseli National Park. The re-greening results, especially after the intense rain season, were spectacular!

Blog: Let the bund training begin
As you might have read before, we will soon start digging in Tanzania and therefore Sander (Chief Technology officer, Justdiggit) and Francesco (from partner organization MetaMeta) started training farmers and further explored the area last week.

Thanks to our great international media partners Kinetic, Havas Lemz, JCDecaux and MacLoud we can now be heard on Tanzanian radio! But not only that, the Tanzanian streets also turn green with our billboards. All this media space is offered completely sponsored.

Meet our education team
Pollution, desertification, and global warming: our planet can use some extra hands. It was the main motivation for Jan Hoetmer, owner of Leerbox Uitstekend and primary school teacher, and Andrea Forzoni, geologist, when they approached Justdiggit in 2017 for setting up a combined teaching program.
Read here how it developed into a strong team!->
After Kenya also bunds in Tanzania!
September this year the well-known ‘earth smiles’, crescent shaped water bunds, will be dug in Tanzanian ground. So far we have used FMNR techniques in the Dodoma region. We can soon add a new re-greening technology to our Tanzanian program!
Our program manager Niels Dierckx and MetaMeta partner Francesco Sambalino were back in the field two weeks ago looking for locations suited for rainwater harvesting. Read here how this went!
