In collaboration with our partners, we advance solutions on multiple levels - from practical implementation in the field to political advocacy and campaigns. Our goals are the protection and restoration of tropical forests as well as secure livelihoods for the communities that live in and around them.

Local knowledge meets academic research

By fostering the dialogue between the latest academic research from around the world and the traditional knowledge of local communities, OroVerde promotes practices that are innovative, practical, impact-oriented and support local societies and cultures.

Accelerating local initiatives

In OroVerde's project areas there are many initiatives that are highly committed to nature conservation. However, they often lack the necessary funds and infrastructure to work effectively. This is where OroVerde comes into play. We provide training and support for the planning and implementation of projects. Simultaneously, we work to strengthen the institutional capacities of our local partners.

Education as key strategy

OroVerde concentrates on educating and empowering children and young people, both in Europe and tropical regions. However, we take adult education just as seriously. Only if we understand global interconnections and consciously use our power as consumers and citizens, can the rainforest be protected.

What we promise

OroVerde stands for integrity, transparency and credibility. The setting of clear goals, transparent controlling and reporting are the backbone of responsibly handling donations and public funding.

Tropical forest conservation is a team effort

To fight effectively fight deforestation, change must occur on a social, cultural and political level. With our wide range of information and educational material as well as our projects, we want to reach as many people as possible and inspire them to work towards a sustainable future as a global society.
