How OpenForests is striving for impact with the platform

For more than 9 years we have been working closely with different forest and conservation projects around the world. We have been creating customized information systems for consolidating and managing forestry data in one place.

Good information management leads to better decisions. It helps to build trusting relationships with both external and internal stakeholders. We’ve learned that transparent communication, long-term partnerships, and the right technology stack can deliver enormous value for organizations.

That is why we are building platform services, such as — to empower more people in building sustainable forest projects that are trustworthy and well-connected with stakeholders.

A software platform that is constantly improving could deliver value to an indefinite number of organizations, something which is difficult to achieve with consulting services alone., which we started out two years ago, is our first set of platform services. Everyone can use the map-based platform to create beautiful and effective project presentations that engage stakeholders and supporters.

We think that can serve as an important living link between people and forest projects. In these strange times where social distancing and political polarization are disconnecting and separating us, a community of visionary forest and conservation projects becomes even more important. We strive to form and support such a community that can lead a cultural mind-shift. A mind-shift that acknowledges the integrity and intrinsic value of healthy forest landscapes. But we can only achieve this together.

We warmly welcome you to join the community of sustainable forest makers!

Become part of the community and share your project with your supporters.
