Other Projects

Under “Other Projects,” we group together activities that do not fall into our main categories. These are essentially planting actions at various locations, initiated or supported by the Daniel Schlegel Umweltstiftung. Such plantings also have a significant positive impact on our environment, and the local population directly benefits, for example, through fruits, improved microclimate, and erosion protection. Compared to large reforestation projects or natural forests, such projects primarily have local effects.

While they may be small, local planting activities can also have a positive effect on the microclimate and biodiversity, as well as promote environmental awareness among participants. They are a step in the right direction to initiate positive changes in communities and the environment.

Therefore, the Daniel Schlegel Umweltstiftung supports various local planting actions within a manageable framework, often initiated by committed individuals and institutions. Their impact is evident in various ways:

Plants provide habitat and food for a variety of animals and insects. Even small plantings of native plants can help increase the species diversity in an area and create ecological niches for different living beings.

Erosion Control
Plants, especially their root systems, help stabilize the soil and prevent erosion. Even on small surfaces, plants can contribute to protecting the soil from erosion by wind and water.

Air Quality
Plants filter air pollutants and absorb harmful carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Even small plantings can improve local air quality and contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gases.

Improvement of the Microclimate
Plants contribute to the creation of a pleasant microclimate by providing shade, increasing air humidity, and enabling evaporative cooling. These effects can be particularly important in urban environments to reduce heat islands.

Support for Pollinators
Plantings of flowering plants can provide important food sources for bees and other pollinators, which play a crucial role in the pollination of plants and thus in the maintenance of ecosystems and food production.

The Daniel Schlegel Umweltstiftung is supporting a six-month voluntary placement for Silja Unger in Costa Rica for the non-profit organisation “First Aid for Wonderful Nature e.V.” (FAWN).
The Daniel Schlegel Umweltstiftung is supporting the planting of eight climate-resistant trees in the gardens and cemetery of Fischbeck Abbey in Lower Saxony.
The Daniel Schlegel Umweltstiftung is supporting the municipality of Hessisch-Oldendorf in planting 20 fruit trees as part of the “Hessisch-Oldendorf blüht auf!” initiative.
A former farmland in the region around Alfhausen in Lower Saxony is now 20 trees richer. To achieve this, we joined forces with friends and planted the old fruit varieties ourselves.
Rising temperatures, persistent droughts and exhaust fumes are taking their toll on Berlin’s tree population.
There are about 600,000 children and adolescents living in the German capital, for whom Berlin offers about 1,850 public playgrounds.
Father Peter’s St. Joseph Mosati Thank You Jesus Clinic is located in the extremely poor district of Kasese in Uganda.
On Capeverdean island Santiago in the northern part of the city Tarrafal there is the educational and leisure center Delta Cultura that was founded by Florian Wegenstein and his wife Marisa in 2002.
In May 2019, the idea to help an industrially plagued town in Bosnia started developing.
