Re-greening the world

Who we are

REFORESTATION WORLD started as a private initiative dedicated to the promotion of forest restoration initiatives, in Switzerland and abroad. Since 2021, we are a non-profit association registered in Zurich, Switzerland. We work by raising awareness about forest restoration efforts worldwide and supporting practical actions.

Do you want to present your ongoing project or organisation in our platform?

Start by completing our free registration form here. Our team will review it and get in touch with you. Please note that only active, ongoing projects can be listed in our platform.

We are also a meeting place for reforestation organisations worldwide and their supporters, those who see the problem of forest degradation and are working for healthy ecosystems and sustainable human livelihoods.

Do you want to collaborate with us, make a suggestion or request?

Please get in touch with us via our contact form or through our contact e-mail.

Our work

We present organisations engaged with local communities to restore forest ecosystems and promote sustainable land management and livelihood approaches. Through our website and public activities, we want to encourage potential supporters to learn more about these efforts. In addition, we share relevant knowledge and perspectives between professionals and non-specialists with an interest in these topics.

The organisations presented here are added to our website for free, after our team reviews their work and overall transparency. We invite you to discover, share and support their work.

Our work has a clear focus on the UN Sustainable Development Goal 15: Life on Land but links to several others. Since forests are a irreplaceable basis for many essential services and values, a positive work on this goal can directly impact other important dimensions.
