We are dedicated to creating a sustainable future by addressing the challenges of climate change through reforestation efforts and building sustainable food systems.
At The Ahimsa Project, we believe in the power of collective action to combat climate change. By working together to create a healthier planet and creating global connections, we can ensure a better future for generations to come.
WHAT WE DO
Sustainable Food Systems
We recognize that planetary health is a holistic system and needs to be approached as such
We plant trees in areas affected by deforestation, renewing the land's ability to sequester carbon and supporting local ecosystems. We focus on diversity, density, and natural techniques.
We monitor pockets of undeveloped and agricultural land.
SUSTAINABLE FOOD SYSTEMS
We work with local farmers and landholders to promote sustainable agricultural practices, reducing the carbon footprint of our food system. We empower local communities to grow their own food.
We provide education and resource support at the community level.
We create green spaces in urban and suburban communities, promoting biodiversity and reducing the urban heat island effect.
We support women and girls in their pursuit of sustainability education and action. We support low and middle income countries facing the highest burden of climate change. We support indigenous populations obtain tools to manage their community's resources. We support the action of groups seeking to provide resources, conservation, and resources for all species. We build systems of cooperation to help maximize group climate action goals.
WHY SUPPORT US
A New Holistic Way of Approaching Climate Change
We do not take a piecemeal approach to climate change. We invest in the concept of planetary health which uses an integrative approach to addressing climate change. No one part of the planet or the species on earth can be supported without a multi-pronged approach. Everything is connected from the microbes to the ozone. It is up to us to build integrated systems that work in harmony with nature to mitigate climate change and shift where we can to reduce its impact.
