Idea

Idea pitch

The goal is to promote tourism instead of cutting down the Białowieża Forest, create new jobs in tourism, promote online broadcasts of concerts, meetings with interesting people.

The festival was already implemented as a one-day event in Białystok on 27/09/2019. https://youtu.be/Ks1kMvXgUys Discussion / Debate "Round Table for the Białowieża Forest" https://youtu.be/BUx4LQF5k1o and 27/08/2016 (3.5 hours movie record https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yfb7_tuooU), we want to repeat it cyclically

Where will your project idea take place?

around Białowieża, Poland, for example https://hajnowkacentralna.eu http://atrakcjepodlasia.pl/

What is the local challenge?

The Bialowieza National Park Strict Reserve is a model 50 km2 of the last natural forest in Europe, a real forest, a place that every European should see.

And the Białowieża Forest is, for example, the place of occurrence of the species of fungus that is the basis of the cancer drug https://www.tvp.info/40594727/grzyb-z-puszczy-bialowieskiej-moze-leczyc-raka-naukowcy-chca-go-opatentowac

During the COVID-19 epidemic, the Białowieża Forest especially needs promotion and visits of tourists who will support it with their presence and money. Be part of it! Take part! The Białowieża Forest is waiting for you! Support the festival's project financially and become a special guest!

How does your idea strengthen democracy and active citizenship at a local and community level?

Will there be forest fires in Poland in summer, e.g. in Australia? 80% of the area of post-communist plantations of State Forest boards awaits a disaster. Coniferous trees (spruces) with a shallow root system wither due to climate change and a lowering of groundwater levels. They were planted instead of deciduous trees, natural in Poland. Foresters have grown bark beetles on spruce board plantations, bark beetles or fires in the strict reserve of the Białowieża National Park are not a problem. That is why they must be taken away from forests before they lead to such a catastrophe as in the "economic" part of the Białowieża Forest. http://bazapozarow.ibles.pl/zagrozenie/ http://ibialowieski.blogspot.com/p/o-puszczy-biaowieskiej-roz wound-regionu.html

Who are you doing it for?

The goal is to promote tourism instead of cutting down the Białowieża Forest, create new jobs in tourism, promote online broadcasts of concerts, meetings with interesting people

For example: Zakopane in Poland is an example of a town which, due to deforestation, sheep farming or metallurgy basin, which lost its profitability due to depletion of deposits became the capital of tourism, due to mountain air, which was supposed to treat tuberculosis, and the railway line caused an increase in the number of tourists. Today, the surroundings of the Białowieża Forest and a fragment of the last natural forest in Europe are the answer to the problems of smog, climate change and forest fires.
