On Common Ground

At the Generation Forest Co-op , we plant tropical forests to stop global climate change. We want to contribute for a future where every generation passes down a planet in a better condition than before.

 

We use large deforested areas in the tropics to plant highly biodiverse forests, and therefore create permanent forests that are ecologically and economically viable. For increased transparency, we work as a cooperative.
