Catalunya is burning, l’Empordà is burning. The situation is disastrous and the sensation of not being able to do anything along with the feeling solidarity is enormous. This is why we have created the initiative #1català1arbre.
#1català1arbre pretends to be an association of organized volunteers, directed whenever should be needed.
#1català1arbre is a portal to access all the information and decisions that have to be made due to the forest fire so that we can act successfully afterwards the fire has been extinguished.
This active fight against the flames is being protagonized by anonymous heroes, whether it be firefighters, ADF’s and/or volunteers. The members of the Red Cross as well as many citizens have offered their homes throughout the province for the ones that have been affected and displaced. The rage and sorrow of the destruction of our homes and beloved earth has caused us to think consequently about the actions that we could take after the fire has been extinguished.
Let us be clear: more than a slogan, the purpose of this initiative is to create a successful and coordinated cooperation with a solid collective conscience after the fire has been extinguished.
Standing before this tragedy, #1català1arbre wants to transmit the strong bond that resides within the Catalan people and the earth.
We want to reunite the greatest amount of collaborators possible with the sole purpose of acting under the advice of experts.
We do not want to plant pine trees where there should be oaks instead.
This event should be a useful tool to minimize the effects of this disaster.
The intention of this initiative is for each action to result in regaining a small part of our territory, always with the approval of experts.
The fire is burning, but never strong enough to extinguish the hope that lays within each and every one of us.
