Studio106LA and Belgrade based non-profit Shuma Peva, are coming together to raise money to plant more trees and help citizens to live through this ecological crisis. Shuma Peva quite literally means the forest sings. It is the community run organization which we have chosen to donate to as a small step forward to a resolution. Their primary goal is to plant trees throughout the city and, for the past five years, Shuma Peva under the direction of Tea Nikolic have done precisely this. They have planted and maintained over 1000 trees, with the intention to revive nature throughout the city of Belgrade. They continue to partner with schools, buildings and businesses providing all the good that nature does for us.
This initiative is organized by Studio 106la with the goal to raise the awareness of air pollution in Serbia. Air quality in Serbia is a big concern: measurements show that citizens all over the country breathe in air that is considered harmful to health. For example, concentrations of PM2.5 and PM10 are much higher than what the EU and the World Health Organization have set to protect health.
In an effort to tell the story of the impeding issue of mass pollution in Serbia, we hope you will donate to our cause.
ONE TREE is only $20.00 so in the name of BeoAir and a city which was once a forest, let us bring life and hope.
The initiative is supported by the ArtSci Research Center at UCLA.
