Situation

We are addressing two main problems: 1. Climate change and the need to engage at all levels nationally within Nepal and internationally in advance of the COP26 climate change conference to apply pressure for action at what is seen as being our "last chance" to save the planet (John Kerry, U.S. Envoy for Climate). 2. Women from marginalised communities are in a chronically disempowered situation for reasons of gender and ethnicity. We wish to help them through skills training and employment.

Solution

Problem 1: We will conduct a high profile reforestation/art/advocacy project in advance of COP26. We will create an urban forest in a park in Janakpur using the Miyawaki Method. In parallel, we will install a mosaic mural - "Nepal's Guernica" to commemorate the floods of 2017 when 132 local people died. We will engage with children and young people nationally and internationally. Problem 2: Support to the Lily's Leaves social enterprise in Kathmandu that trains women in tailoring and jewellery.
