Event Description

“Water Retention Landscapes as an Answer to Desertification and Globalization”

Second International Water Symposium in Tamera, April 27th– 29th, 2012

http://www.tamera.org/index.php?id=808&L=0

Tamera has invited water specialists and policy makers of many countries. Examples like the water retention landscape of Tamera shall show how desertification can be reversed and the water cycle in all climate zones of the Earth can be cured. Among the speakers are: Sepp Holzer, permaculture specialist and rebel farmer from Austria, who supports groups building water retention landscapes in many countries, Rajendra Singh, "Water Gandhi" who has built hundreds of lakes in Rajasthan, John D. Liu, a film maker who accompanies large scale landscape healing projects in China and the USA, Madjid Abdellaziz, founder of Desert Greening, Algeria, Nora van Cauwenbergh, UNESCO, Belgium, Martin Vilela, Fundación Agua Sustentable, Bolivia, and many others.


Most of the so-called "natural disasters" that we experience all over the world today are human-made disasters caused by an incorrect handling of the elements and beings of nature. If humankind wants to survive on this planet, we must learn to think differently and to cooperate with the forces of nature. This is where water could be our best teacher.

We have convened this symposium to introduce a concept – through the example of the water retention landscape of Tamera – of how desertification can be reversed and the water cycle cured in all climate zones of the Earth within a short period of time. (...)

Water is not a chemical formula, but a central organ of the biosphere. (...)
Building water retention landscapes is in most places of the Earth the first step for the healing of nature and the development of modern subsistence economies. (...)

The water retention landscapes are an integral part of special training centres as part of the Global Campus, which besides the global ecological issues also addresses the technological, intellectual, spiritual and social problems and develops an appropriate solution as a model.

In the name of a future worth living!
