OpenForests builds solutions and technology at the service of people and nature. We develop tools for forest restoration and conservation initiatives to manage their data, communicate their impact openly, immerse stakeholders in the place of the project, and build networks of supporters.
OpenForests offers custom forest information services and a map-based project communication platform, explorer.land.
Years working together
The OpenForests ecosystem has grown into a multidisciplinary team, covering diverse aspects of forest management: computer and data science, forest policy and governance, forest ecology, economics, natural resource management, sustainable development, and communications. We unite our complementary skills and experience through our shared values.
Join our Team
Join the OpenForests team and build together a more healthier future for all of us.
We believe that another world is possible. A world where human and nonhuman beings flourish alongside each other. A world where people are not masters of but part of what we call nature. For this to happen, we need a collective change of consciousness and to rebuild connectedness with the diversity of all life.
The ultimate goal is to give back voices to the people and give faces to their projects.
We empower people in making more biodiverse, resilient, social, and transparent forest projects.
How can we change the world?
In moments of deep friendship, we often discuss ideas of changing the world for the better. And this is the story of OpenForests and how it all started: in a tiny kitchen, late at night, we – Stefan, Patrick, and Alexander – sharing our concerns over the state of the world. Over injustices, politics, ethics, and the exploitation of nature.
Usually, the next morning one swallows down their idealism with a good cup of coffee and then back to business as usual.
But this time it was different!
