earth-on-hand

Our world is on your hand. Global warming is the rise in the average temperature of Earth's atmosphere since the late 19th century and its projected continuation. It is estimated that since the early 20th century, Earth's mean surface temperature has been increased by about 0.8°C (1.4°F).

INDIVIDUALLY you can do a lot to reduce the level of Global Warming. By adapting your lifestyle to zero carbon footprints, you will significantly contribute to a safer world. This can be done in many ways, but if you help us to plant mangrove trees in vulnerable coastal areas, each tree will mitigate 1 ton of carbon dioxide (CO2) during a 20 year cycle. Trees planted on your behalf is a lifesaving protective shield from extreme weather. It will in addition increase production of sea food and provide a lot of other benefits.

Over 75 percent of the traditional mangrove areas in Myanmar have been destroyed by now and need replanting with protective care. This is an urgent issue as Global Warming is looming with dangers of sea level rise and extreme weather, threatening millions of lives in coastal areas around the world. This is a vital part of our research project for restoration of mangrove forests back in Myanmar.

WE INVITE YOU AS A PARTNER in planting mangroves in the newly established research park at Myeik University. Trees planted in your name will be well taken care of. You will achieve double benefits. Zero carbon footprint for one year or more and support to a vital project in Adaptation to Global Warming benefitting disadvantage people with life-saving protection. You can easily monitor your plants via Google World and you are welcome to visit your plants in the park (close to Myeik airport).

Human activities such as tree felling, urbanization, oil and gas exploration has led to the reduction of Mangrove and disruption of food chain and erosion of riverbanks.

The cost of planting and protecting 4 mangrove saplings in the university mangrove research park is USD 28. This will in time mitigate over 3 tons of carbon dioxide, the average yearly carbon footprint of a European citizen. By planting 4 trees per year for USD 28 (less than USD 0.08 per day), you are above the yearly average carbon dioxide critical level and will receive a very beautiful Worldview Zero Carbon Footprint Certificate for one year (or more with long term partnership). The certificate is painted in water colors by one of Myanmar’s most revered artist U Sein Myint.

Please sign in for partnership status if you can afford less than USD 0.08 per day during one year. You are welcome to sign in for any number of years and to buy zero carbon certificates for others as well. The 100 acre university mangrove park has space for 100,000 new mangrove trees. The project is an important component in national research and development, in cooperation with Myanmar Ministry of Environmental Conservation and Forestry, Myeik University and local communities.

ORCHIDS4LIFE
wild-orchid

Cypripedium Calceolus, also known as “Yellow Lady Slippers” is an extremely rare type of wild orchid found across Europe and stretching East to Asia and onward to the Pacific Ocean.

Award yourself, your family and friends with Zero carbon footprint certificates and help restoring lost mangrove forests around the world. You can also support Worldviews bio-diversity orchid rescue efforts at a time when many species are lost forever on a daily basis. A case in point is Myanmar’s rich varieties of over 1000 endemic orchids, many in grave danger due to unlawful commercial activities. Worldview will be saving valuable orchids by establishing a tissue culture lab for propagation, with 50 percent of the new plants as livelihood projects in mangrove forests as alternative to mangrove destruction for short sighted economic gains. 50 percent of the plants will be sold to orchid lovers around the world, to make the project sustainable. By buying beautiful endangered orchids from the tissue culture lab, you can contribute to securing Myanmar’s rich bio-diversity. First pants will be ready for delivery in 2014.

LIGHTS4LIFE
solar-light

Rural villages will no longer have to rely on candles and kerosene lamps for light. They will now have a more environment-friendly and cost-effective light source through the solar lamps.

We invite you to support a poor family by donating a solar rechargeable lamp to replace polluting and fire risking oil lamps or expensive candle lights. This will dramatically change the lives of the beneficiaries by awarding them modern bright lights to break the depressing cycle of darkness. The solar lights will be distributed by local communities on micro credit terms which will cost less than the daily use of traditional oil lamps or candle lights. After less than one year the lamp can be paid back on easy terms. The lamp has three year guarantee which comes with a replaceable rechargable battery. The project will be implemented in cooperation with Myanmar Department of Rural Development and aims at assisting 8 million households with clean and free energy from the sun. You are welcome as partners in the Solar Revolution to light up lives of disadvantaged families with a wonderful gift from darkness to light.

Worldview Myanmar has successfully concluded a test project on production of Nypa syrup in cooperation with local communities in coastal areas. This has a potential to provide livelihood to thousands of villagers as partners in protecting mangrove forests.
