"Desde 2011, BIBO ha sensibilizado a los colombianos sobre los múltiples servicios ambientales que de manera cotidiana prestan los bosques, y ha mostrado que con acciones concretas y cambios de comportamiento es posible ayudar a su conservación, mensaje que gracias a los aliados que año tras año han apoyado la financiación es posible su ejecución, permitiendo que sus contenidos y comunicación llegue a los territorios más apartados del país y a la mayor cantidad de colombianos posibles". @bibocol  mil gracias por su apoyo y por ser parte de nuestra #CarreraVerdeColombia

#Louisville 160th City to Pass 100% Renewable-Energy Resolution
The Louisville Metro Council has voted to commit to reaching 100% renewable energy use for city operations within the next two decades.

According to the resolution, the city will work to shift public transit and other operations to run on a cleaner form of energy, such as electricity and solar power.

Drew Foley, group chair of the Sierra Club's Greater Louisville Group, described the move as a step in the right direction, but pointed out that a handful of U.S. cities already are generating all or most of the energy for city operations from clean and renewable sources.

Is a wetland in your proximity drying out? Covering roughly 6 percent of the planet, wetlands - such as lakes, marshes, and rivers - constitute the habitat or breeding grounds of 40 percent of all species, and are crucial in maintaining the balance of our ecosystem and tackling the climate crisis. @wetlands_international is a global non-profit organisation working to conserve them. Please consider supporting them and read more by clicking the link in our bio. Image: Wil Molenkamp.

It’s time to break the spell Canada has over the rest of the world.
•
Before I moved to Canada, I had the perception that Canada was a leader in liberal and green policy. But the years have gone by, and those perceptions have slowly unravelled into fluff.
•
According to @stand.earth, Canada contains just 0.5% of global population, pretty small in the scheme of things right? Yet Canada also holds oil reserves that have the ability to MAKE or BREAK the climate crisis. If unleashed, this oil would eat through 1/3 of the remaining carbon budget.
•
This country, it’s leaders, those in power, hold countless lives in their hands, not just Canadian residents, but people all over the world. The longer I’m in Canada, the more I feel the government don’t care about economic impacts on residents and global citizens.
•
The fight of the Wet’suwet’en has gained global attraction, with the RCMP using force to enter lands they have no right or approval to be on. This human rights and UNDRIP violation is happening for profit. Building a pipeline at the expense of the indigenous, at the expense of the land, at the expense exacerbating climate change, at the expense of global lives is NOT SUSTAINABLE OR ETHICAL.
•
& THIS ISN’T THE ONLY FOSSIL FUEL PROJECT!! Those in power have until February 29th to decide on another project... The Teck Frontier Mine. If approved, the open tar sand mine will be 113 square miles! That’s flipping’ huge! It will likely ruin local water ways, some of which are the only access to clean water for some indigenous groups. & guess what’s on that land right now... Old growth forest, which contains a ton of biodiversity, and wetlands that are home to hundreds of thousands of migratory birds.
•
We need national and international pressure to make sure the Canadian government make the right decision, not just for Canada, but for the world. I have a document of actions, which includes petitions you can sign and tweets you can send, that can be accessed via the link in my bio. Please please check it out and do some, this is so important, not just for indigenous communities, but for the global carbon budget and bigger climage change picture.

When is a record high temperature not a record? When it’s recorded in the Antarctic but not yet “verified” by the World Meteorological Organization, a UN agency. Researchers from Argentina and Brazil separately recorded what appears to be a record high for Antarctica this month, but the data has to be vetted by a group of scientists led by an Arizona State University researcher. “A formal decision on whether or not this is a record is likely to be several months away,” according to a spokesman for the WMO.

I was so excited to get my hands on a copy of #TheFutureWeChoose by the wonderful people behind the 2015 UN Paris Agreement on #ClimateChange - @cfigueres and @tomcarnac 🌍📖
.
It’s an absolute must-read for everyone - clearly outlining the two possible futures awaiting us in 2050 - one extremely frightening and one wonderfully inspiring - which one we get all depends on what we do next....🤞🙏
.
Right NOW is our last chance ⏳to choose a future where life on Earth would be bearable, and the authors paint a clear vision of what we need to aim for with ideas for how we get there 🌳🐝🐟
.
I LOVE the fact these highly knowledgeable people who have read all the science still have hope and believe we can pull it off ✨💚
.
All we need is enough of us to be inspired by their vision and to implement it in our own spheres of influence. It’s going to take ALL of us, a true team effort, but it feels both possible and more desirable than the nature-depleted, happiness-depleted world we inhabit today - it’s an opportunity to transform society to restore nature & community spirit 🌱❤️
.
The book releases on 25th Feb 2020 and if you’d like to preorder from @waterstones you can receive a £4 discount 🙌 if you use the code FUTURE at check out - swipe to see the offer details! 😍📚
.
This book would make an amazing gift for anyone you know suffering from #ecoanxiety - because the best antidote is to take deliberate positive action to implement the future we choose 💪💫
.
I also love this book because it‘s #plasticfree ! 🌊🐋👏

Needing some #climateaction inspo? Look no further than 16-year-old @israhirsi — a featured speaker at this weekend’s @tedxwakeforestu! As Co-Founder and Co-Executive Director of the @usclimatestrike, Hirsi led hundreds of strikes across the country last spring. Driven by her identity as a Black Muslim woman, she has been a longtime advocate for intersectionality and diversity within the climate justice movement. Her climate activism blossomed her freshman year when she joined her high school’s environmental club. Don’t miss your chance to hear Hirsi speak this Saturday 2/22 as well as Nathan Atkinson, Co-Founder and Director of Business Development of @villagejuice and President of @hope_ws!

Scottish tea? Hear how Lucy and her family have withstood the weather and are producing @tullochtea in the Highlands...
.
“I have always wanted to farm and grow things! I loved creating gardens as a child, and my Mum, Aunty, and Grandma are all avid gardeners, so I grew up learning about plants.

When I met my husband, we shared a dream to live on a smallholding and run a rural business.

We've always enjoyed foraging and creating our own hedgerow teas, and when we started looking into this as a business we discovered that a few people were experimenting with growing tea in Scotland, and we decided to give it a go!

Once we had decided that tea was what we wanted to do, we needed to find the right land. We knew we wanted enough space to become as self sufficient as possible, and we were lucky in being able to purchase our 5 acres of land and an old cottage near to where my Husband grew up in Sutherland.

When we bought our croft in the Scottish Highlands in 2016 it needed a lot of work. We have been working non-stop ever since, and in 2017 we planted 1,500 tea plants. We also have a small herd of goats, chickens, and ducks, and we’re building a house ourselves. We also have 2 young children, so it's quite a juggle!

I love spending so much time outside, being able to have our girls growing up in nature and learning about the natural world, the excitement of creating our own little paradise on this sunny Scottish hillside, the space, and the ability to structure my own time and be my own boss!

There’s a lot of work in getting the tea plants established, including weeding, watering, fertilising, and pruning -  and as everything has to be done 1,500 times it's very time consuming!

This summer we will start to harvest our tea, and hopefully begin to sell small amounts in Autumn 2020.

There are two things that are top on our list of creating a more sustainable food system. One is creating biodiversity by introducing trees, herbs, and other plants which attract bees, birds and butterflies; the other is to be entirely organic. We make our own compost, mulch and fertiliser and no chemicals are used on the croft at all.”

“Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” - a pretty obvious green mantra that has been around a long time- yet I find us using plastic bottles like crazy with no thought to that wisdom. These are just juice bottles we have around today! We recycle cardboard, papers and all metals, but with no community recycle pickup we have ignored our single use plastic waste and glass recycle. No more. Several issues here - why such small containers with so much more packaging waste? Why not glass? Why haven’t we recycled? Ask yourselves and the suppliers and take action today. #climatechange #climateaction #climatestrike #globalwarming #recycle #nomoreplastic

These are just juice bottles we have around today! We recycle cardboard, papers and all metals, but with no community recycle pickup we have ignored our single use plastic waste and glass recycle. No more. Several issues here - why such small containers with so much more packaging waste? Why not glass? Why haven’t we recycled? Ask yourselves and the suppliers and take action today. #climatechange #climateaction #climatestrike #globalwarming #recycle #nomoreplastic - 22 minutes ago
