Si Comincia con un albero, si finisce con una Foresta.
Il Centro Buddhista Muni Gyana, centro affiliato alla FPMT ( Fondazione per la preservazione della Tradizione Mahayana ) e all’Unione Buddhista Italiana ha dato avvio al progetto Green Future
Il progetto Green Future intende rispondere al cambiamento climatico con una iniziativa che parta dal basso. Se ciascuno di noi piantasse un albero avremmo ridato ossigeno al pianeta.
Come dice Sua Santità il Dalai Lama, la Terra è la nostra casa e come tale dobbiamo prendercene cura.
Ci sono mille modi per poter salvaguardare il nostro pianeta, ma un gesto semplice come piantare un albero può davvero segnare una rivoluzione.
All’interno della Campagna Global Tree Initiative promossa da Tenzin Osel andremo a sviluppare sul nostro territorio nazionale un’iniziativa legata alla piantumazione di 1500 Alberi. https://plantgrowsave.org/
Il progetto Green Future mira a far rinascere un agrumeto anche all’interno di un terreno confiscato alla Mafia;
All’interno di Terra Franca nascerà un polo per l’educazione ambientale rivolto a giovani ed adulti.

Per tutto il 2021 il nostro obiettivo è quindi quello di promuovere tali esperienze ed invitiamo chiunque a collaborare con noi e a sostenerci
Sostieni il progetto con una piccola o grande donazione.

It starts with a Tree, ends with a Forest!
The idea of the campaign stems from the need of the community of the Muni Gyana
Center to become an active part in responding to a common need: a need to act against
climate change and support social community projects.
We plan to plant 1500 trees on the Italian territory by 2022 in order to launch a message
of sustainability and responsibility. 400 of these trees will be planted in Terra Franca,
helping to recreate a green lung on the land confiscated from the mafia, in Cruillas, a
neighborhood on the outskirts of Palermo. The other trees will be donated through rewards
and planted throughout Italy;
Through the collected donations we are going to recreate the citrus grove that used to
exist in Terra Franca and create an educational hub open to citizens, associations and
institutions that could be a driving force for sustainable development of the city.
We have relied on donations, because we believe that common goods are the
responsibility of all and that each of us can contribute against climate change. By planting
a tree, you would help us take care of all sentient beings living on our planet.
It starts with a Tree, ends with a Forest – this is the claim that summarizes the goal of
the Green Future project: carrying out a big awareness campaign on the issue of
As His Holiness the Dalai Lama says, “The Earth is our home and therefore we must
take care of it;.
This campaign is part of the support of the Global Tree initiative promoted by Tenzin Ösel
There are a thousand ways to safeguard our planet, but a simple gesture like planting a
tree can really mark a revolution. It starts with a Tree, it ends with a Forest!
By donating a tree to the planet, you will contribute to the battle against climate change
and the creation of a garden in Terra Franca.
In order to reduce CO2 emissions, we have decided not to ship the trees separately but to
indicate a pickup point.
Collect your tree at the Muni Gyana Center in Via Grotte Partanna, 5, 90151 Palermo PA
or to donate it for a social project.
To collect your tree, send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
NOTE: If you would like to dedicate your trees as a gift, for a special occasion, or perhaps
in memory of a loved one, we can arrange this for you. Remember to include the name,
the occasion, the date and any message.
If it is not possible to collect the tree, it will be donated to Terra Franca.
The Municipality has entrusted the Human Rights Youth Organization (H.R.Y.O) to work
towards its restitution to the local population who have directly or indirectly suffered from
the oppression linked to the presence of the Mafia in Palermo. This land is a symbol of
reconstruction and hope to the residents.
The main goal of Terra Franca project is to raise awareness about the environmental
issues affecting the area and to give the residents a land in which everyone can have
access to natural resources such as fresh fruits and vegetables.
Terra Franca was abandoned for several years after having suffered of traditional Italian
style unauthorized development through houses secretly and illegally built.
Moreover, the land was used as an illegal landfill. Volunteers and residents are working to
make the area cleaner and restore it to the community.
We want to encourage the residents to adopt sustainable practices, properly separate their
waste and be active. Shared gardens are community center adapted to both young and
older residents to share knowledge with each other and reinforce social bonds.
Terra Franca is an opportunity for the community who do not have land access to grow
healthy products, preserve this unique food culture and to create a community shared
garden for the residents of Cruillas.
