Enlisting for peace : the solution outlined in the film

Investing in a worldwide environmental service program

All over the world, concerned citizens, especially young people, are ready to take action for the climate. Yet there are very few programs that enable them to make a concrete impact on this crisis of global warming.

A worldwide ecological service program, adapted to the local realities of countries, would offer the option of enlisting for soil regeneration. Volunteers would be trained and committed to sowing, greening, planting and working the land.

By coming together, the fortunes of this world, who wish to invest in the survival of humanity, have the power to raise sufficient funds to create an ecological service system.

Enlisting as in the army...but for peace?

Comparable in form and structure to the military service model, volunteers could join an ecological service to regenerate their country's soils. Specifically, they would have to sow, plant and work the soil in order to improve its water infiltration capacity, porosity and organic matter wherever desertification, tree cutting and poor agricultural practices have already taken their toll.

For three years, participants would be provided with food, lodging and an allowance to compensate for their work, which is of inestimable value to the planet. Delivered directly on the land to be regenerated, the ecological service would take the form of theoretical training, practical training and work experience.

Why greening the planet?

  • Because the simple fact of having plant cover on the ground dissipates heat and thus reduces global warming.

  • Because it prevents runoff and contributes to the natural water cycle, as water is also a cooling factor and the basis of life on earth.

  • Because plants capture CO2 that is present in too great a quantity in the atmosphere to sequester it in the soil for decades or even centuries.

  • Because regenerating the planet's soils means directly and concretely tackling the climate crisis that is destabilizing ecosystems.

Over a period of 30 years, if we regenerate the planet's deserted soils to cool the earth and sequester present and future carbon dioxide, it is possible to reverse global warming and thus protect ecosystems and save the land that will have to feed 9.7 billion people in 2050.
