Ground Zero in New York is a place that in an intense an horrible way reminds us at the fact, that war and confrontation are no solutions for religious or secular conflicts. GAIA wants to plant 111 Ginkgo trees at Ground Zero, together with the architect of the new world trade center Daniel Libeskind. This could be a symbol for an international understandig and the will for peace. The ginkgo tree is the oldest tree in the world. In view of its thousands of years of history, the actual problems of mankind seem to be small and resolvable. Daniel Libeskind likes the projekt, but had to forward the decision to the NY Port Authority, who is in charge of the area. Their answer to our enquiry has not been given yet.
