Preventing Soil Degradation
Generating 3cm of top soil takes around 1,000 years
Preventing Freshwater Pollution
Half of the world's freshwater can be found in only 6 countries
Preventing Ocean Deoxygenation
By 2100, 70% to 90% of world's coral reefs will disappear
Preventing Wildlife Extinction
0.01% - 0.1% of world's species will become extinct each year
People constantly think of changing the world,
but rarely think of changing oneself
We have been putting things off year after year, we have been raising targets and saying, if we do it in the twenty years… the moment of crisis has come, we can no longer avoid it.Sir David Frederick AttenboroughWorld’s Leading Naturalist
“By far the earth’s only neoecological commune aim to mobilise generational ecological citizens to accelerate mass conservation and mass ecological transition across the Southeast Asia, the Austronesian world, the South America, and the Amazonian world. ”
What is the use of a house if you haven’t got a tolerable planet to put it on?
Let’s be clear. No human technology can fully replace ‘nature’s technology’ perfected over hundreds of millions of years in delivering key services to sustain life on Earth. A productive, diverse natural world, and a stable climate have been the foundation of the success of our civilization, and will continue to be so in future. A fundamental issue in previous technological revolutions has been the lightness with which we have taken for granted healthy natural systems like forests, oceans, river basins rather than valuing these as a necessary condition to economic development.

Conserving terrestrial ecosystems across the Southeast Asia and the Austronesian World
Planting trees every year and protecting them till they are grown up. Reusing solid waste. Managing pesticides in agriculture. Providing food, fibre, fuel, shelter resources. storing, transforming and releasing carbon, water and other nutrients. Reducing the impact of floods, cyclones and droughts. Protecting soil resources from salinity and erosion.
Conserving wetland ecosystems across the Southeast Asia and the Austronesian World
Maintain a buffer strip of native plants along streams and wetlands. Use pesticides and fertilizers sparingly. Avoid non-native and invasive species of plants. Avoid stormwater run-off and don’t pollute. Afforestation, weed control, preventing invasive species is the key to wetland conservation. Preventing grazing in peripherals of wetlands.
Conserving highland ecosystems across the Southeast Asia and the Austronesian World
By covering more and more of the earth’s surface with concrete and cement, we are threatening mountain biodiversity and the natural weather coping mechanisms that keep us safe. Stop quarrying hills for limestone and construction materials. Abstain from rent-seeking economy derived from buildings. Move away from unsustainable permanent buildings.

Can we make it to the 4th second?
If Earth’s 4.5 billion years were scaled down to one day, humans have been present for 3 seconds.
How will we shape our 4th second? Humans are wiping out species worldwide, but human activity is also responsible for ushering in a new age of biodiversity.
