Blue carbon Venice by Sea the Change

The project takes care of the aquatic environment by carrying out regular maintenance work, which increases the number of different species and helps to absorb more CO2 from the atmosphere.

This project in the Venice lagoon uses the natural capture of CO2e through two types of algae: macroalgae, visible to the naked eye, and phytoplankton. These underwater organisms absorb CO2 through photosynthesis.

Unitor REDD+

This project is watching over animals, plants, and how healthy the forest is. They’re also measuring how much carbon the trees store and develops income alternatives for the mining communities.

This project protects forests located in one of the regions with the highest deforestation rate in the Amazon Biome: the municipality of Lábrea, in Amazonas. Before this project the area was losing many trees – around 0.81% each year. This is like losing 194 soccer fields of trees yearly. Cattle-raising was the main reason.

Mekong Project water purifier

The Mekong Project provides portable water purifiers to rural communities along the Mekong River Delta, improving the environment and health. By eliminating the need to burn wood to boil water, pollution and deforestation are greatly reduced.

In rural Vietnam, 71% of families boil water using inefficient stoves, which is expensive and harmful to health. By removing the need for firewood and boiling, the project reduces pollution, indoor air issues, and deforestation, benefiting people’s health and easing the burden of firewood collection.
