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!
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!

Together with our amazing partners Havas Africa, JCDecaux Africa, LEAD Foundation, and Havas Lemz, we invited a select group of media partners, potential ambassadors and online influencers, all of whom were very excited to learn about our programs and eager to join our green revolution. Work in progress and a great first step!
