Respect the essential quality criteria:
defence and restoration of biodiversity, social development, CO2 capture, education.
Make a long-term commitment
(at least 5 years) to guarantee the maturity and autonomy of the ecosystems
IMAGINE WAS BORN OUT OF THE RECOGNITION BY SCIENTISTS THAT PRESERVING AND REGENERATING FORESTS IS ONE OF THE MOST ACCESSIBLE AND EFFECTIVE SOLUTIONS FOR RESTORING ECOSYSTEMS, SAFEGUARDING BIODIVERSITY AND COMBATING CLIMATE CHANGE, WHILE REDUCING OUR ECOLOGICAL FOOTPRINT.
of the IMAGINE movement
is to be a DO-TANK
IMAGINE is neither
nor an association,
nor a foundation.
It is a collaborative approach of contribution, because only collective action and millions of connected efforts will allow us to see a global benefit.
ACCORDING TO SCIENTISTS 1 BILLION HECTARES OF FOREST
could capture up to 30% of human-induced CO2 in the atmosphere.
This would help reduce the level of CO2 in the atmosphere by 25% - the equivalent of 2/3 of all emissions generated by humans since the onset of the industrial revolution.
And of course, there are all the other services that forests provide, including the emission of oxygen, maintaining the water supply, protecting biodiversity and job creation.
projects ALL OVER THE WORLD
To help you take concrete action right now, here are some examples of reforest'action projects and projects currently being financed by members of the imagine movement
OBJECTIVES: Create forest-gardens and restore mangroves. The mangrove will protect the villages from rising water levels and prevent coastal erosion
SURFACE TO BE RESTORED: 210 hectares
OBJECTIVES: Restoration of degraded ecosystems, economic development of local communities, preservation of biodiversity
OBJECTIVES : Restoration of local biodiversity endangered by the development of exotic tree species
RESTORED SURFACE: 60 hectares
OBJECTIVES: Restoration of an area of land damaged by forest fires
KEY INDICATORS OF OUR projects:
Tonnes of CO2 stored.
Number of hectares protected or restored.
Number of people positively impacted.
Number of people taught about forest conservation.
