Dear Friends & Supporters,

Today's media are dominated by negative news - but we don't only look at what goes wrong, but on how we can enable change. Our mission is to identify and spread solutions - and this month, we can present interesting examples from across the globe: Land restoration in Ethiopia, 100% Renewable Energy in Uganda, clean air in India and solutions for regenerative urban development were on the agenda in February.

Best regards,
Jakob von Uexkull, Alexandra Wandel & Johanna Dillig
