The Context

The fires have started again in Kalimantan, Indonesia. The fires that spanned thousands of acres, put more carbon into the air in those 3 months than all of Europe does in a year. Pollution levels range from 35,000 PM 2.5/cubic feet to 1.7 million PM 2.5/cubic feet on any given day.

    

And for all the declarations of fire suppression and responsible land clearance, the fear is that global warming has made a lot of forests and peatlands difficult to protect. But it is not just about protecting the land. Many villagers and people living near the hot zones are affected badly by the forest fires.

The Big Red Button’s vision is to create safe spaces for thousands of people, should peatland fires return. To be able to shelter the children, the sick & the elderly who are most vulnerable and require immediate access to filtered air. They also want to build haze shelters for the brave men and women who are fighting peatland fires on the frontlines and to give them a place to rest before going back into unimaginable conditions to protect the forests and peatland.

The Goal

Big Red Button has spent two years researching and building Indonesia’s first operating haze shelter and have even recently developed a solution for rural village “kampung” houses which are notoriously hard to seal from the elements. Below are examples of the haze shelter and the “kampung” house.

    

And so money raised from this event will go to helping Big Red Button build more haze shelters, “kampung” houses, or even basic supplies like masks and air purifiers. In fact, it is more accurate to say that money raised from this event will go to helping the young, the sick and the elderly do the most basic thing in life – to breathe.
