[GMW #3760] Universities Protect Their Forests Forever

[GMW #3760] Universities Protect Their Forests Forever Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 3001 to 4000
~ Idea 4155 ~
Dear Earth, I have one more good news: admiring today a beautiful mountain entirely covered by forests without access to automobiles in the chain of mountains bordering Santa Barbara I asked if this was public property and learned that it belonged to the University of California at Santa Barbara.

How wonderful. I will ask the World Association of University Presidents to make a world survey of protected natural areas belonging to universities. It might be quite considerable.

I was thinking of the more than 800 acres of primeval tropical forests donated to the UN University for Peace in Costa Rica on the condition that they will remain forever protected.

Such a survey would be part of the broader world survey of land ownership I am recommending to the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) in Geneva.

Human beings are future oriented: everyone regrets no longer to be alive in a hundred years; but nobody regrets not to have lived a hundred years ago.  Or could it be that we instinctively know that the future will be better than the past, despite our complaints?
