Now a days everybody is talking about the global warming and environment pollution but nobody is taking initiative to prevent it, in fact most of the people wants to participate but they are not getting the right platform for this. There is only way to prevent global warming is plantation. As we all know the importance of plantation that it will prevent the global warming as well as decrease the pollution level. So we need to get  join the interested people not only digitally but on the ground level and work as a team because it can’t be possible by individual efforts so come together(physically) to fight against global warming.                                                                                            #livegreen

Hi Rupendra, it may appear that "nobody is taking initiative to prevent " global warming (actually climate change), but there are people planting trees for carbon capture, pollution trapping, water trapping and food production. Permaculturalists use practices and techniques that directly address climate change issues. I think the most interesting activities are the creation of swales and berms and the greening of the deserts.

I use swales and berms to manage flood water around my house and my house no longer floods during heavy rain.

You are not alone and you might find some permaculture folks in your region....

ethiopia just planted roughly 350 million in a day, breaking a record in how many trees were planted in a single day! People and countries are finally starting to wake up to climate change and taking action. Each individual must do their part.

Thank you Gentry

Excellent Ethiopian  initiative, Algerians have just launched the appeal to the inhabitants to plant a tree per capita. A total of about 35 million trees will have to be planted hopefully.
In Morocco, my country, we have the Green Morocco Plan which is a national project focused on the conversion of rainfed farming zones to arboriculture.

here is the poster of the Algerian call (in Arabic)
