This project consists of natural ecosystems isolated inside sealed containers that only allow the external influence of heat and light. The objective is to collaborate actively on raising awareness about the fragility of our planet and the importance and urgency of its care. With the concept that ¨the world is not for sale¨, the small biosphere adoption program was born; small worlds that represent our planet on an infinitesimal scale.
Are we willing to adopt a small world? Are we willing to adopt „THE“ world? The adoption program highlights the difference between buying and adopting. When we adopt, we are not exercising a property right but committing ourselves to the care of what we adopt, knowing that, ultimately, it does not belong to us. The world is not for sale, we just borrow it from the universe and have a responsibility to take care of it. The Adoption of the World program is open to those who feel the impulse to care for and protect our planet with a transcendental attitude, thinking about future generations. To apply to the program, several requirements must be met, among which three letters of interest and commitment will be requested.
