24 September 2011 – Climate Change Event

24 september 2011

Hiking and planting trees as Climate Change event

Environmental trip at the Al Numeira Environmental Association

More than 80 people came to the hiking and planting trees event at the Al Numeira Environmental Association (NEA) in Jordan on 24 September.

15 internationals and a big number of locals learned about the environmental educational event was 350.org, a global movement to solve the climate crisis. They gathered at the DSHC to learn about environmental practices.

The Director of DSHC, William Alajalin, talked about the Center’s goal to bring locals and internationals together for a common aim: to protect nature, also in the interest of humanity. William is born in Ghor Al-Mazraa, today a very water poor area with a shrinkingDead Seaclose to his home. More than one meter per year the Dead Sea level goes down – because humans take nearly all the water from the Jordan River before it can flow into the Sea.

Rudolf Bastian Tampubolon, Youth Ambassador of the Climate Project Reality Indonesia, brought the 350.org movement closer: climate change, what is it, how to deal with it. A tour through the Center along an authentic mud brick house and organic farming (also called permaculture) garden with grey water system showed participants about environmental practices.

15 trees were planted altogether and participants learned about how to take best care of those trees. Afterwards, they hiked in a close valley, Wadi Numeira. The aim of the hike was to show the beauty of nature but also the problems of trashing and dumping. The event ended with a lunch sponsored by a local company in the Wadi.
