PROJECT

The Green Resilience Project aims to promote the development of resilient communities that live around wetlands, to ensure harmonious coexistence with the ecosystem and to improve its well-being. As part of this, training will be carried out to neighbors (men and women) on the recovery of organic waste, and then to implement orchards. Based on the above, research will be promoted on organic waste produced at the community level, and finally, the aim will be to implement small-scale biodigesters to obtain biogas, taking advantage of the methane that is generated.

MOTIVATION FOR AND COMMITMENT TO CREATING A BETTER AND MORE SUSTAINABLE PLANET

Her main motivation is to inherit a resilient society to next generations. Therefore, she seeks to promote sustainable, fair, and targeted actions to preserve diversity vulnerable to climate change. She believes that thinking and acting at the local level helps communities fight climate change and develop resilience to climate impacts.
