About this project

Deutschland Forstet Auf is the networking platform in German-speaking countries to empower and enable regional actors to tackle and shape climate and environmental protection locally, sustainably and purposefully.  As a gUG, we can accept donations on behalf of forest owners and farmers from companies. We connect foresters, forest owners and farmers with companies that want to invest in their region. Direct, local investments are visible and easily verifiable. Local engagement binds employees to companies.  

Since 20 November 2019:
  • gUG founded, product launched from own funds, network to foresters and forest owners built up by telephone, thus creating the basis for a trusting cooperation. 
  • Our launch was accompanied by ZEIT ONLINE. Over 30 articles in radio, television and print.  
  • More than 70,000 seedlings/trees were planted in the first year after the launch.
  • Despite the pandemic, more than 25 action days throughout Germany with over 1000 volunteers.
Since Summer 2020: 
  • In exchange with the partners, the portfolio is expanded to include maintenance campaigns, fence-building campaigns and seed collection campaigns - we offer every kind of campaign that makes sense according to the experts in order to support the forest.
  • Through time-intensive investments, we have built up a resilient network throughout Germany in the very conservative and divided foresters and forest owner scene and established a good reputation.
Since spring 2021
  • Expansion of the portfolio to include farmers and companies:
  • We have networked seven companies with regional foresters and forest owners. 
  • We just finialized two pilots succesfull in the field of agroforestry and are now planing the coming season with more farmers from all over Germany.
We also Enable children to take long-term, purposeful action themselves: Kids4Forest builds local networks between schools, nurseries and foresters to accelerate local reforestation projects and educate children on what local climate action looks like. Our goal is to have established 500 individual projects across Europe and together with the initiative FREI-Day, we lobby for a change in the school system to use the Friday for extra-curriculum e.g. usable to work with projects like ours.
