Luisa Neubauer

If you need a new female role model, meet Luisa Naubauer. At 23, poised and calm, she is talking the talk and walking the walk. She is a geography student, activist and member of the german environmentalist Green Party, and in the last year, she has become the German face of the “Fridays for Future” climate protection rallies.

As of the beginning of 2019, Neubauer became known as one of the leading Fridays For Future activists. Many media outlets refer to her as the “German face of the movement.” Neubauer rejects comparisons of herself and other strike organisers to Greta Thunberg, saying: “We’re building a mass-movement and reaching out quite far in our methods of mobilising and gaining attention. What Greta does is incredibly inspiring but actually relatively far from that.”

Neubauer does not see the strikes as a means of directly affecting politics. More important is the work behind the strikes: “What we’re doing is incredibly sustainable. We’re creating structures and turning the events into educational experiences. And we’re leading debates on the principles of climate protection.”

Following the protests of Fridays For Future Germany against Siemens for a specific infrastructure project in Australia, Neubauer met Joe Kaeser in January 2020. On 13 January 2020, it was announced that Neubauer had turned down an offer by Joe Kaeser to sit on the Siemens Energy board. In a statement Neubauer said that “If I were to take it up, I would be obliged to represent the company’s interests and could never be an independent critic of Siemens,” she explained. “That is not compatible with my role as [a] climate activist.”. Joe Kaeser stated that he did not offer Neubauer a seat in the companies’ Board, but that he is open to have Neubauer on a Board on environmental questions

On the day before Siemens announced that they will keep the contract with Adani to provide the rail infrastructure of the Carmichael coal mine in Australia. Neubauer told the news agency DPA: “We asked Kaeser to do everything possible to stop the Adani mine. Instead he will now profit from this disastrous project.” She added that this decision was “so last century” and that Kaeser was making an “unforgivable mistake”.

Contact us we need your ideas

We are inviting people to contact with us we need your ideas. People can support our project by getting involved. Our group is developing this website as a platform for people interested in survival in the futures due to changes in the weather and climate change. We think that people have to re-think how they live and where they live. There are great options now for people to build better housing and better use of the land people have. All types of people are needed in any community and we are looking for people that want to buy into eco projects and others that are existing land owners that can see the need and understand that this can be a profitable thing for all that want to get involved in help others do the same. Our group is adding a directory of resources so there can benefit from peoples experiences and knowledge. If you have something to add you will be able to add your info and knowledge too. People that have homes and land can learn about people, products and services to improve, expand and make your property more eco friendly. As for the the majority of people that live in the city doing this would be a whole new way of life. The whole idea that we have is just making things possible. We feel people all ready have what they need to make this new way of living possible.

The ECO Scouts started in 2007

LC Publishing founders of ECO Scouts of America started in 2007. he idea of the group is to help children, parents and family. I the tradition of the Boy or Girl Scouts and the Indian Guides. We are creating an organization that will be local as well as on-line. Giving people a platform where people can learn and teach others about natures role in all our lives and how we are connected and dependent on each other. Just taking kids camping and exposing them to nature is sometimes a life changing experience to young minds. Sometimes people from rural areas take it for granted and people from city and suburban areas have very little connections with it. Our family and has been telling people for over 15 years that the winds of change is coming and people have to start acting and preparing fo the future. Well the future that we were talking about is what we are seeing now in real time. Young people like Greta Thunberg are making a difference. However people have to do more than looking for political change. This will not change the damage that has already been done. Involvement in nature and learning about the envoirnment will help people help change the minds and hearts of other’s that just do not think the treat is real. Extreme weather is starting to cause all kinds of changes that will effect you and your family. That is why our scouting organization is not only about kids and camping but helping to give direction, solutions and support to build a better way for people to take action to make changes what will be need to take place. To reverse climate change will be a long term mission.
We were living on the central coast of California and were looking into land that may be suitable for growing food as well as living. We found this type of land with flexible use is not that available. So we started learning and developing ideas that people can use anywhere to build living space and sustainable living more available.

We have come to believe that a new migration is starting back to living in a more sustainable way. It would take people united to come up with a plan to do this on a massive scale. Why, you say a massive scale? People will have to relocate fast in the future because of climate and economic reasons. Many place will become not as desirable as they once were and offer no resilience to surviving the future changes that the world will be going thru.

How can this be profitable? It is a mater of basic supply and demand. In the first place a lot of real estate is really obsolete. It was not built in the first place to meet the real needs of people in terms of survival and building structure. No one builds more land it is in a limited supply. The houses and zoning of a lot of land will not allow people to live in a way that is more independent and free to use land in a sustainable way and the freedom to build and develop it to be use and many ways that can product income, food and built bigger and better for future generations.

Welcome to our project here you can learn from videos, other resources and our blog. We are a publishing company that helps like minded people connect. We help other people show and tell about what they do and companies or people that want to build a website.
