NGO GUARDIANS OF THE EARTH

Čižmanova 6, 1211 Ljubljana, Slovenia 

WHAT WE EAT

We eat cookies while in Europe - and pancakes in the rest of the World. Keep them in dry place if possible.

 TRASHBONDING
NO BIG WORDS - JUST ACTIONS
 
We are not waiting for Godot - for something to happen - we act!

Without big philosophy, protecting nature promises,

global warming threats, spreading fear or sailing around.

 
While some protest - we hang on ropes and collect trash.
   In our spare time, on our own expense, all over the globe, for 12 years in a row.
HOW DARE WE?
 Well, we dare because we are ...
 
 GUARDIANS OF THE EARTH 

A global community of speleologists, outdoor enthusiasts and martial artists.

 

The ones who admire, love and respect nature ... 

 

the ones who take care of her, the ones who never give up ...

 

and the ones with a long-term plan ...the unstoppable Guardians.

 
 PROBLEM ... LONG-TERM PLAN ... SOLUTION

 

As explorers we recognised the source of pollution of waterways and oceans.

As scientists we invented trashbonding and made a long-term plan.

And as outdoor enthusiasts we are organising international cleanup actions from Europe to China.

 

We have only one planet - and only one water.

Yet we are divided by borders, politics, language, wealth, religion ... and sadly but nevertheless - race.

 

In nature, all of these factors disappear. During our international cleaning actions, we once again come together as one race - the human race.

WHY INTERNATIONAL CLEANUP ACTIONS?

WE HAVE ONLY

ONE PLANET ...

... AND ONLY 

ONE WATER

A WATER THAT CONNECTS US ALL  

We deeply feel the spirit that connects all people around the world, the same that connects

humanity to nature. And we become one family - a family taking care of our Mother Earth.

The earth is not ours to save, but to respect, honour and preserve it.

 

WHY IS CAVING COMMUNITY

 

 

 

LEADING THE WAY?

 

Because we: 

can see in the dark ... like bats. And Batman.
already are an international family.
are modest. We sleep and eat in the mud.
share meals - and don't know egoism.
can carry stuff ... lots of stuff.
are explorers and scientists.
are positive, persistent and dedicated people.

AND WE ALWAYS WORK AS A TEAM

And last but not least - we are damn good organisers and simply the best bunch
of humans on the surface of planet Earth  - and the most dirty ones underneath.
 SUPPORT

The cleanup actions of our caving community in China are recognised, encouraged and supported by:

Asian Union of Speleology, Cave Rescue China, Chinese Committee on Speleology, Chinese Geological Society

 

WHY OUTDOOR ENTHUSIASTS?

We love intact nature - and want to keep it that way!
As outdoor enthusiasts we are capable to clean hardly accessible areas -
mountains, caves, rivers, waterfalls, canyons and gorges.

AND WHY MARTIAL ARTISTS?

Because we never give up.
It's in our blood to carry on until we succeed.

We think of ourselves as nice and friendly humans ...

 
  but you better not mess with us - if you mess with nature. Or children. Or anybody you shouldn't.
 

FOR THOSE WHO STILL READ

We prepared some nice texts. You can read about our Mission, Message to youth, 
importance of including youth in environmental actions or wise thoughts from our members.

THE ULTIMATE GOAL

 
The core of our organization rests on a strong belief that children and nature
are the very foundation of our existence in the future.
It is our job to activate all people around the world to take care of the environment!
