Global Peace Festival UK 2008 – Environmental Focus Group

December 1, 2008

On entering the exhibition area in ExCeL on Saturday 22nd November 2008, one of the first things that caught everyone’s eye was a dazzling green algae lamp! The contribution to the Global Peace Festival by the Environment Focus Group chaired by C-Green Solutions and the benefits returned were both highly successful. These included a project co-sponsored by the GPF, an exhibition stand and a focus session.

 

The practical project entailed the successful development, by Harry Hart of Global Eco, of a system which, when fully replicable, will pave the way to feeding the hungry and resolving climate change in the process. The principles are being implemented in a purpose-built greenhouse at St Michael’s Catholic High School and Specialist Humanities College in Watford.These results were showcased on the Environmental stand, together with their small-scale demonstration of key components of the Global Eco World Recovery Process, which involves cultivating algae, composting it in the absence of air and growing crops in the resulting nutrient-rich fertiliser.
This is a potential method of reclaiming deserts, sun, sea and air (excess CO2) which make up around 75% of the world’s land,  and cyclically producing food, fuels and just about any raw material, growing the world economy in harmony with the planet. A plasma screen showed an animation of the process.
 

Photographs with explanations were displayed in the environmental exhibition booth, together with footage showing representatives from four schools visiting the project.  
The focus session was conducted at a fast and furious pace in order to fit in with the myriad of things happening in the broader event. It was well-attended, and resulted in potential funding to secure the person-millennium of research behind the world recovery process, and a set of out-of-the-box environmental ideas, to be presented on the web for public discernment, development and support.

 

Hopefully, the best of these will turn into radical projects. (Visit www.FREdomeIdeas.org, click <more ideas> and search for Social Ideas | Environmental. They will be displayed as soon as they have been through our moderation process…)
