Earth Charter-Values & Principles for a Sustainable Future

(In-Sync with Earth Charter principles and in need of help and partnership as an organization)

The mission of the Save Nubia Project (SNP) is to help raise national and international awareness about the pending flooding of the central areas of the ancient Kushite and Nubian civilizations in the Sudan. There are a series of dams (from the 2nd through 5th cataracts) scheduled for construction, each of which will cause the Nile River to back up and create a reservoir and flood countless ancient archaeological sites and displace well over 100,000 local Sudanese people. Thus, the Save Nubia Project’s task is to document that the dam construction areas in northern and central Sudan are valuable World Heritage Sites that are in danger of being destroyed, and should be preserved.


The SNP’s focus is three-fold:

1.    To document, record, and publish historical and archaeological evidence on the importance of this historic northern and central Sudan region.

2.    To present compelling evidence to UNESCO, which has the authority to designate the Sudanese dam areas as World Heritage Sites under threat, which may help protect these areas from dam construction and inundation. There are other sources of energy available in Sudan, such as solar panels and wind turbines.

3.    To assist the local Nubian people near the 2nd and 3rd cataracts to build a series of museums to help preserve their heritage.

Thank you for posting this very important campaign.  It inspired us to create a 'Member Activism' page to highlight these projects.  We will include this in the next broadcast as well.
