Our targets for challenging the ecological problems in Rojava are ambitious. As part of our reforestation drive, we want to plant 40.000 trees in Hayaka nature reserve in the Canton of Cizire. At our academy, we have started to grow a tree nursery with ten of thousands of shoots. It will work as a cooperative, supplying the society with trees.
Besides the reforestation efforts, we want to implement pilot projects within the Internationalist Commune itself. We will work on renewable energy, recycling and water treatment. This kind of work requires a great deal of creativity in the context of Rojava, since the economical embargo imposed by the neighboring states places many standard solutions out of reach.
For this a lot of money is needed – but money is not everything!
Be it on social media or by word of mouth, we are always happy to reach more people. Feel free to spread our material and ideas!
We are still looking for people to help us with some of our technical projects. If you an environmental engineer, you know about ecological agriculture or you have other knowledge which might be useful for us, we would be more than happy for you to reach out to us.
Especially for our renewable energy, waste recycling and water treatment projects we are looking for engineers and technicians who can point us in the right direction.
The reforestation of Rojava already costs a lot of money. The war which still ravages the region was created by the geopolitical meddling of Western governments who now stand back and do nothing as Syria burns. Citizens of these states must feel the responsiblity to do what their governments will not.

Those who have the possibility should think seriously about joining us here in Rojava, to learn from the revolution, support it by sharing knowledge, and organise together with the Kurdish liberation movement. It doesn’t matter if you’re an expert – we want people who feel a connection to the revolution and are willing to learn from it.
The ecological problems in Rojava are connected to ecological problems everywhere in the world. In the same way, the struggles against these crises should be connected. The exploitation of nature is connected to social hierarchies and power structures in general. The solution for this lies in the concept of Democratic Confederalism and its praxis in Rojava. So let’s get in contact with one another, share our experiences and connect our struggles!
