Green Planet Ventures, is a social enterprise that works in the interface of environment conservation and sustainable development. We provide internships, work experience, volunteering and research opportunities in the field of tropical forest conservation and sustainable development. Through our programmes.
We also put to best use our knowledge of the destinations and organise our forest holidays. These give our clients the opportunity to immerse themselves in the appreciation of nature, ensuring they get the best possible value for the services they receive and second to none local knowledge. As well as contributing to the development of the local economy and the location’s conservation efforts, in trips that are designed with the protection of the natural environment in mind.
Our mission is to protect Tropical forests and enhance youth education on sustainable development, global citizenship and the protection of tropical forests as an essential ecosystem to preserve life on planet earth and regulate climate.
Tropical forests hold circa 80% of the terrestrial biodiversity of the planet. They are located in developing countries that lack the resources for essential human needs, let alone for environmental research and conservation. That is why Green Planet Ventures works with local research and forest conservation organisations, helping enhance their capacity to protect our forests for future generations.
By placing our volunteers to gain work experience or spend a working holiday in these centers we achieve win-win cooperation. For we help these institutions carry out their research, at the same time of providing our volunteers with an opportunity to apply and develop their skills and make a meaningful contribution to the protection of tropical forests.
Our forest holidays are not less important, they provide the support needed for some of the projects we work on and provide value to the local economy in an environmentally sustainable way.
Today’s youth are the leaders of tomorrow, so we aim to encourage and catalyze their education developing an ethos of protection of natural resources and sustainable development, in order to preserve the planet’s natural resources for future generations and help tackle climate change.
Tropical forests occur in developing countries, which are also expected to receive the effects of climate change more severely than temperate regions; so we feel the moral obligation to support these countries’ endeavours to protect this ecosystems for the sake of humanity.
