HI Sustainability Fund Competition 2015
HI Iceland joins forces with Landvernd, the Icelandic Environment Association in order to offset the CO2 emissions of guests and staff of HI Iceland by offering them the chance to take part in restoration and carbon sequestration initiatives.
Together we are applying for the HI Sustainability Fund with a project called Restore Our Land and we need your vote!
Iceland has long suffered from severe land degradation and desertification. Over 95% of original native birch woodland is lost since human settled the island one thousand years ago and about 40% of the country is now a barren desert or otherwise poorly vegetated. This pilot project forms the first phase of a larger participatory restoration project which HI Iceland plans to start with Landvernd, Iceland´s leading environmental NGO, and we would be grateful to have your vote!
You are allowed to vote for two projects. See here more information about the HI Sustainability Fund and the other participating countries.
Here is HI Iceland’s project: Restore Our Land (you can scroll down to vote directly in the project).
We wholeheartedly thank you for your support!
