Who are we?

We are a community of people who are thirsty to act to protect nature.

We are on a journey to protect nature and we support nature protectors who act to protect nature everyday.​​

We know there are millions of people who are as thirsty for action as we are. Let's join forces.

With this movement we aim to help to connect people who are motivated to act, with nature protectors for them to take concrete actions in their projects

Bergwaldprojekt

The purpose of the association is the protection, maintenance and care of the forest, in particular the mountain forest and the cultural landscapes, as well as the promotion of the understanding of the interrelationships in nature, the concerns of the forest and the dependence of humans on these livelihoods.

For this purpose, the mountain forest project works with volunteers in forests, moors and open-air biotopes at various locations in Germany. The aim of the work assignments is

To preserve the diverse functions of the ecosystems,
To make the participants aware of the importance and the endangerment of our natural foundations of life,
To encourage a broad public to use natural resources in a manner that is compatible with nature.

Volvic supports Bergwaldprojekt

In Germany, 30% of the forests are endangered : source Bergwaldprojekt
