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.
Regreening with Webfleet Solutions
We are proud to announce that our partner Webfleet Solutions, a Bridgestone Company, has invested in regreening an area in Tanzania that is 4 times larger in size than the center of Amsterdam (3380 ha) – to offset its carbon emissions. By regreening this area, in total around 51,800 tons of CO2 will be sequestrated through bringing back over 130,000 trees. The program not only takes CO2 out of the air, but it also positively impacts the livelihoods of over 18,000 people, saves 700 million liters of water yearly, and restores biodiversity.

Change of chair
On October 8th, our chair Jenny Elissen has said farewell to our Supervisory Board.
“It is a wonderful moment to say goodbye after 8 years as chair of Justdiggit. From almost nothing and a lot of drive and enthusiasm, Justdiggit now is a firm international organization with an innovative business model and projects one can only dream of. I will stay connected and hope to keep playing a connecting role within the Advisory Board.”
We are very thankful for the years of dedication and her great commitment to Justdiggit. We are happy that she will remain involved through a role within the Advisory Board.
We did not only say goodbye to Jenny, but also said hello to our new chair of the Supervisory Board: Harold Knebel!

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?
Take a look at all the campaigns over here ->
Educating farmers through SMS
Thus far, our partner LEAD Foundation has collected 43,271 phone numbers of Tanzanian farmers who want to receive instructions on how to perform Kisiki Hai, so they can regreen their land!
“Karibu! Thank you for signing up for Kisiki Hai sms, together with your champion farmer we are here to support you in practicing Kisiki Hai. You will receive messages every week. Best, Mr Kisiki Hai.”

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!
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!
