The Largest City-centered Park in Europe


Through the Size of Phoenix Park Project

(SOPP) we aim to turn the negative

implications of Ireland’s dependance on

imported timber on its head. By

encouraging people to take positive

action and help increase Ireland’s

forest cover and protect an area of

rainforest equivalent to 200 times  the

size of our beloved Phoenix Park in Dublin

-the largest city centered park in Europe,

we can make a difference.


SOPP is all about protecting natural resources for our children NOW!

ENDING POVERTY STARTS WITH US

The Phoenix Park is 707 HECTARES.We need to re-plan an area of woodland here in Ireland and conserve an area of rainforest in Africa 200 times the Size of Phoenix Park.  Please Join US in this CHALLENGE!

First Things First:

This is NOT a Carbon 'offset' Project

This is a way in which you can support 'AGENDA 21'-the blueprint for sustainability.


This is a way in which you can support tree planting to sequester your travel-related emissions.


This is a way in which you can increase Ireland's tree cover.


This is a way in which you can provide Irish timber for the next generation.


This is a way in which you can put something back into the natural world


This is a way in which you can stop people in poverty-stricken areas taking their children out of school to go look for fuelwood to survive


Providing a real, 'local' solution to a real 'global' problem requires personal, corporate and political CHANGE!

First Things First:

This is NOT a Carbon 'offset' Project

This is a way in which you can support 'livelihoods'

This is away in which you can support 'responsible' forest management


This is a way in which you can support tropical forest conservation


This is a way in which you can provide fuelwood for the 1.2 billion people living in poverty who rely on wood for heating and cooking and just boiling water to render it 'drinkable'


This is a way in which you can promote 'sustainable' development


This is a way in which you can support education


This is a very practical way in which YOU CAN BE THAT CHANGE!

There can be no mistake. We have overwhelming evidence that human activity is affecting the Earth’s climate. At the moment, the planet can only absorb half the 10 billion tons of carbon we emit annually. The rest stays in the athmosphere and causes temperatures to rise-we MUST stabilise global temperatures. Deforestation contributes significantly to adverse climate change. 


Through the Size of the Phoenix Park Project (SOPP) we aim to turn the negative implications of Ireland's dependence on imported timber on its head, by encouraging people to take positive action and help increase Ireland's forest cover and protect an area of rainforest equivalent to the size of our beloved Phoenix Park in Dublin-the largest city-centered park in Europe.


€2 Will Protect an Area of Rainforest the Size of Croke Park


“We love it that people in Ireland want to join us to help protect tropical forests and are very happy to help Just Carbon get going. It will take more than Wales and Ireland to protect the world’s forests but between us we can set a good example to the rest of the world.

 

Every time supporters of Just Carbon donate another €1414 to help protect another 707 Hectares (the size of Phoenix Park) between now and March 31st 2013 we will match it pound for pound or euro for euro and give it to one of the twenty forest conservation projects we are supporting.

 

Once it takes off we can allocate one particular forest area that Irish contributions will go to so you will know exactly where the tropical Phonenix Parks are. Many thanks to Just Forests for making this happen.”

Hannah Scrase,

Director of tropical forest charity

We also know that western society cannot continue to generate excess CO2 and expect people in developing economies to absorb it through "questionable" carbon offsetting projects. Just Forests is not offering this service (Just CARBON's SOPP Project) as a cop-out to anyone who is ignoring the need for 'real' personal, corporate and political change. Providing a real 'local' solution to a real 'global' problem requires personal, corporate and political CHANGE! The choices we make on a daily basis determines our committment!

Just Forests is offering this service NOT as a cop-out to anyone who is ignoring the need for 'real' personal, corporate and political change, BUT as an additional/hands-on means by which people can deal with Climate Change issues through life-style choices.


Now you can have trees planted to sequester your work-related travel emissions while supporting Just Forests educational work and advocacy on climate change.. Just Forests is a member of STOP CLIMATE CHAOS

We also support World We Want-Campaign for a more just and sustainable Ireland in a fairer world.

See our Forests & the Millennium Development Goals page 

Let's put the pieces back together again... because this is what we want!
