WeForest is a purpose-driven non-profit.

We work with governments, organisations and communities to restore threatened forests and landscapes in tropical regions and biodiversity hotspots.
Our focus is the well-being of the communities where we work.

We’re ambitious. And we take a long-term view.

To help stop global warming in our lifetimes.
We’re taking a leading role to grow the
1 trillion trees we need by 2030 to reverse global warming and restore the biodiversity and water that sustain all life on Earth.

Why Forest and Landscape Restoration?

Forests are one of the most important solutions to address the effects of climate change. They are also a powerful force to lift people out of poverty, conserve biodiversity and reverse desertification.

As well as supplying clean water and air, forests are a source of livelihoods for local communities.
